    I don't need pico to debate with, I can debate his old diaries, like Debating the Canon!

    Ulysses is mindblowing, beautiful, and intimidating.

    You mention "my observations which were low brow" - well, that's why Ulysses is intimidating. By far the most important thing is whether you read carefully and with an open mind. But having background knowledge and a critical framework can help to clarify your literary ideas and how you articulate them, and pico has plenty of those. You do too, though, with all the reading, paying attention and thinking about books you've put in. He's just mastered the lingo and that expert voice thingy. And me, I have some of that, plus overconfidence.

    I hope to see more of pico in R&BLers. And I'm glad he's already left a big footprint.
