>Hurr durr everything's subjective. I'm so cool.
Where is your evidence. Certain things are objectively disgusting (rotten flesh) by that logic, there are some traits which are objectively beautiful.

How do i learn to be a good judge of literature? Like, if someone asks me why i like Blood Meridian i'll answer "uuhhh like, the prose was very good y'know and like the Judge was pretty cool and the descriptions were nice i guess". I can't form a coherent reason on why i like it. I wanna learn how to be an incisive critic, specifying exactly what techniques, and why they're good, that makes certain works of literature, good books. What books should i read?

You're just some idiot, but some actual scientists think like you do and that's the appalling thing.

Hello /lit/, brainlet here.
