Every time I find these "huge authors" being mentioned,I *seriously* wonder whether it is really possible for young authors anymore, to build up a similar "huge" enviroment/setting …

I mean it like with a kind o proverb I developed :

"Goethe is like an huge, old german oak.
It is old, huge, steady, and dominates the landscape.
But unfortunately, it doesn't allow younger saplings to grow in its shadow, either."

This is always the case when I read these "huge names".
Like Tolkien or Gygax, for example.

And I'm so sick of it.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
