          We're talking about real authors here, kid.
          Jokes aside, I see why Borges wouldn't like Tolkien. Authors like Borges and Eco can write erudite works and still be accessible, Tolkien is really difficult to vibe with.

            Edwin Muir said in his review of Return of the King that he got the impression that it was written by a virgin and that upset Tolkien so much he complained to his publisher.

            That is some virgin energy right there, no wonder virgins and virgins at heart (manchildren) like his work so much. Borges also shit-talked the baroque stylists in another interview. Even though there is not a single woman in a Borges story, you can tell he fricked a lot.

            Google his name next to Gongora and read around if you cannot find it there. It is an important aspect of Borges.

            Thank you very much.

    Poe was tsundere for Longfellow. Even defended Longfellow under a pseudonym after he (Poe) criticisized one of his poems.
