Dickens lessons the impact of flowery language by using it constantly instead of throwing it in to highlight the importance or beauty of XYZ, and in overusing his flowery language whenever he can, he also loses structure in his writing. He chose money over perfecting his art.
Shakespeare is just overrated and not entertaining to me, and apparently stole other people's work?
It's old writing. Of course everything is flowery. We don't do stuff like that anymore, which makes the stories interesting. Shakespeare did steal from others but always added a little something in there. Changed things. And he made up new words.
@AnonymousToAnExtent I like flowery, don't get me wrong, but he used it as much as he could not because he thought it made his work better, but because he got paid per word, and in the end it had a negative effect
@👑MirandaKnowsWhat'sUp👑 I see the logic in that. And hey, if I needed to make some money, I would make my stories 5,000 pages lol. You know he would write what the people wanted? Sent his work out a little at a time.
