it was amazing

Yeah, so I'm one of maybe 14 people in the U.S. who have actually read the entire thing (and maybe one of five that enjoyed it). It is truly one of the great intellectual accomplishments of Western literature. Does it move me? In a few places, but its austerity redefined literature for generations (and helped end the epic. After all, after Paradise Lost, who could compete?)
