Dear sirs, that was the most pretentious piece of shit I have read in many a day. Stop trying to scorch the reader with your fucking (I believe that is an Anglo Saxon word and a damn good one) intellect. Beside the essay were way WAY too long. I couldn't finish them. I tried. Truly, I did. It was literary masturbation. It was an essay that took itself very VERY VERY VERY seriously.
Have a nice day.
