A book is only great if it contains all nine conflicts.
Don Quixote is the only great book.

Gardner is more like man vs. author's inability to write, or man vs. author's overwhelming mediocrity. There's nothing postmodern about him. It's just excessively poor writing.

>> No.19842076

already retroactively refuted AND superseded by Gardner (pbuh). if you had read gardner you would need that he does not rely upon the obsolete "postmodern" tradition, but instead post-postmodernism, or metamodernism. Gardnerchads just keep winning.

He's so ahead of his time... how does he do it?

There's nothing "meta" about writing poorly.

When I read Gardner a year ago it was memorable just because of how stupid it was.

I read Call of the Crocodile but instead of going on to Arcade which is the next most memed one I might do a random weird one like Kappa or Limbo's Rainbow.

Man vs Technology would be with Quijote facing the fact that he´s trying to be a knight in a time were powder guns start taking over, so swords and that sort of weapons start to became useless.

Some conflicts are inherently more interesting than others. Man vs. Author will always be the least interesting.

>> No.19844298

The author created the characters and the world in the book, so man vs author is the same conflict as man vs god.
There are thus only 8 conflicts worth talking about.

The thing that bothers me is that Daffy is both man, god and nature in this grid

How is Man vs Tech postmodern? Is Terminator postmodern?

>> No.19845043

The two to it's left (man vs nature and man vs scoiety) both concern the dominant force controlling the individual in their time. Technology, and the rapid expansion of it's capabilities, happens to be the most accurate thing you could call the dominant force of what we call the postmodern era.

How is "Man vs Self" and "Man vs No God" different?

>> No.19847462

Man versus self is dualist. Man versus no-god is non-dualist. The Dao that can be known as the Dao is not the Dao.

>> No.19847755

Thanks for clearing that up
