    What will famous writers say when they meet each other?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by lawrencelpy, Dec 22, 2017.

    What if Shakespeare met John Milton? What would Shakespeare say to Milton?
    Perhaps he would say "you don't see how this world goes. But you see it feelingly".

    How about other writers? Let's brainstorm it!

    I'm not sure what Charles Bukowski and Hunter Thompson would have to say to each other, but I'd like to be there. I don't remember if Philip Jose Farmer had writers getting together in the Riverworld series or not, but the theme was similar.

    Haha, we can just make out the dialogue!
    Maybe when Jane Austen met Ernest Hemingway today, she would say to him, "an unmannered and unbecoming man who loves drinking too much, and womanises around, which is a pity"

    No doubt. Better yet might be to listen to one of today's YA writers trying to explain 'genderqueer' to Hemingway.

    I got into Bukowski long after I'd been through all of Thompson's stuff, and I was... surprised at the similarities. I imagine it would go something like:

    "You stole my shit."

    "Yeah, well... try one of these."

    Lizards and hilarity ensue.
