That's why you don't want to major in English and Spanish with no other, discernable skills.

A bunch of people with stupid majors got fucked. Get a real major and you have a much lower chance at getting fucked.

The guy that hooked up my cable was a comp sci major from a Top 100 school.

My point remains. CompSci is not employable at all right now.

You're saying CompiSci isn't a "real major" then?

What does Flannery O'Connor have to do with this? How much of her work have you read?

mother of god, MTal you make one of these threads every month. you failed at law school we get it. why do you keep coming here if you are no longer a law student nor applicant. you have no connection with this site anymore. i don't see why anyone would keep coming to TLS years when in your situation. you are like the loser from high school who keeps coming to visit at age 28 to talk about your glory years when you never had any glory.

I appreciate your honesty in terms of acknowledging your minimal exposure to her writing. The "doom and gloom" that you mentioned have nothing to do with her work. She's one of my favorite authors and deserves better than to have someone wildly throwing her name around an Mtal thread.

wow, aren't you just the douche of the year.

The book I read, and I believe with your douche abilities you should be able to pick it out very quickly, took place in a run down part of a city and was about false prophets, prostitutes, corrupt politicians, and a slap-you-in-your-face Jesus protagonist that would mutilate himself because he hated the world or something.

What was that about doom and gloom having nothing to do with her work?

Now personally I feel like that it was quite similar to Mtal's version of the nasty, big bad world. But then hey, douches will and do disagree with things regularly.

The novel you are describing is probably Wise Blood (although there wasn't anything in that book about corrupt politicians that I can remember). O'Connor wrote in a style that has been described as Southern Gothic and it is a mixture of the grotesque and the comical. Her writing does not (as you believe) evoke despair and sorrow (gloom and doom) as much as it evokes misguided foolishness and futility especially in southerners and religious zealots. I'm not claiming to be smarter than you are (as a douche would do I suppose). I've just read more of and thought more about this particular author's work than it seems like you have.

Generally, I must say I don't appreciate you dropping her name and mischaracterizing her work without at least knowing the name of the one novel of hers you claim to have read, and if that makes me a douche in your eyes, then I will own it.

It's definitely not. Unless you want to be an IT guy.

Thank you. I understand that "she wrote in a style that has been described as Southern Gothic". I have also read the back of a book cover. Indeed, I also have read a smattering of various Gothic styled American liter-a-ture, although I do not make myself out to be the distinguished scholar that you are on the topic.

Where I do split hairs with you good sir or ma'am is you jump to many conclusions about what I was implying with my word choice. I felt as if the scene he was painting was similar to some Flannery O'Connor painted in her novel Wise Blood.

Does that work for you oh learned scholar who knows what Southern Gothic is?

You pedantic, pedantic, little girl.
