Can someone help me with the name of this guy?
Hi, I’m wondering about some 20th century literature critic (maybe 19th century, cant remember tbh)
He wrote about “ennuncial poverty” or something, which said 90% of texts were a pile of (insert substance of choice) and that when analysing critics were making something out of nothing, seeing things that were not really there to make up for the poor quality of the texts. I think he was french or something, and had a name vaugely like F*cker. Any ideas?
