I'm going to try to have the last word, since I'm the art historian!
Why call something stupid if you don't understand it, by your own admission? You may think 'Emperor's New Clothes' at a Rothko, but my aesthetic might say 'genius.' Who's 'right'? I'm sure you know enough about literature to be able to understand and appreciate a writer who works not only with plot, narrative, and characterization, but also with the language itself. And that playing with language is a large part of the beauty of the work. I'm saying the same thing about Rothko, but he uses another medium.
Not wishing to get into an argument over aesthetics, ba-deep, ba-deep, ba-deep, that's all folks --
