Who are the two greatest male writers of the 20th century? It would be hard to argue against these two literary giants.
In one corner, you have the champ – JAMES “THE GIANT” JOYCE. He wrote some incredibly dense books like Ulysses and Finnegan’s Wake, that people still find difficult to understand.
In the other corner, you have the challenger – THOMAS “DRUGGLES” PYNCHON. Forty years after Joyce, he wrote some more complex books like Gravity’s Rainbow, V. and The crying of Lot 49, that are also a bit hard to understand.
Put these two in a boxing ring together, and what do you have?
