Imagine being this delusional. The fact that anglo lit has been poured down everyone's fucking throats doesn't mean that it is nor the best nor good. As of today it is in fact the most mass-lit there is. Also, while English lit is high tier, American lit is the most overhyped pile of shit there is. In that regard Spanish lit is on par with English lit, while American lit falls bellow both French and Spanish lit.

OP, please read more. Although trolling Spanish posters by telling them that always shuts them up.

Who are Goethe, Kant, Wagner, Nietzsche, etc. Portuguese and Dutch language are not prominent though.

Only Goethe is Yea Forums there

Name one significant work of catalonian literature.

Oh come on

Ramon Llull is Kino though

not that user but this guy comes to mind

Jewmerican media unironically turned it from one of the most beautiful Latin languages to synonymous with cucaracha ay caramba comic relief language.

There are literally Nietzsche and Schopenhauer threads everyday on this board.
And if you study art history, you are going to learn German since they pioneered it.

Respect the Aztec warrior. The problem is that all literature these days is shit. The literary canon is probably closed for ever now. If you made it, you made it, if not, you will never make it.

retard moment. current generation is illiterate, but some authors of merit are out there writing. they won't be appreciated in their lifetimes. the future is going to think of the early 21st century as a dark age created and controlled by propagandists.

Kant, Wagner and Nietzsche aren't literature. Goethe, eventhough is famous, isn't good. The only german writers that inovated and took the language to the limit are Kafka and Rilke — neither actually germanic.

And for Dutch and the country of Portugal that might be actually true. João Pessoa is just insuferable, Eça de Queiroz didn't go so far as being decent or even revolutionary and The Lusiads is barely a narrative to be an epic. However, in the portuguese language, a country whose literature is overlooked is Brazil. People only know trannyfucker Paulo Coelho — a shit writer. But brazilian literature alone is as rich as the whole angloid literature combined.

Here's the redpill: Machado de Assis, Clarice Lispector, Adonias Filho, Graciliano Ramos, Érico Veríssimo, Autran Dourado (this one took the language farther than the others, but I don't think he's translated), Ferreira Gullar, João Cabral de Melo Neto, Carlos Drummond de Andrade, Gonçalves Dias etc.

What is the high art in.

Good point. I meant the relevant ones.

>the relevant ones
So English French and German
You don't seem very intelligent

I think it did but people are just not aware of much of it because it is far less translated than the big 3 of English, German, and French. Or even Italian.

>But brazilian literature alone is as rich as the whole angloid literature combined
This is straight up delusional.
No Portuguese speaking country has a major literary tradition. It’s not the fault of authors unlucky enough to talk and write in that terrible sounding language, but it was over before it started for all of them. Portuguese is the worse Romance language by a long shot.


That's certainly true for portuguese portuguese. They sound like a russian language.

it's temporary. anglos are due another classic before 2030, the identity politic and new sincerity wave has already peaked.

it´s funny how anglosaxons only focus in their own canon (which is just english and american books) and then they want to pretend that there isn´t such canon for the iberian cultural sphere which goes back centuries before the reconquista and the renaissance it had during the period in which conquered half of the new world and not only that, after the independence of the new republics centuries later, it also has a vast canon of worthwhile books and invented a new genre (magical realism), meanwhile you don´t see the same legacy with anglo countries (with the exception of the US of course), where are the literature marvel of Canada or New Zealand? did something worthile the British produced in the post-war besides George Orwell?

i may ask: Why did English never fulfill it's potential as a language of the arts like French or Spanish?

Failure to deviate from DQ and the Bible best displays the phillistine setting. Gabriel Garcia Marquez is the Kentaro Miura of LatAm. The plot is never action oriented but always a sentimental slow stroll through mystical ontological shock.
We're too practical and shamanistic to trust in any institutions. We need to see it for ourselves. Thats why no one reads Quijote.

>implying european spanish doesn't sound worse than latin american
You're not actually implying this, are you? ARE YOU?

>anglos are too dumb to notice that Baltasar Gracián influenced Schopenhauer and Nietzsche

Spanish spanish sounds like Slavoj Sizek turned gayyyyyyyy~.
Mexican Spanish sounds like Spartan laconic barking and chicken cooing.
Cuban Spanish sounds like slurred stroke speech.
