Why can't zoomers and millennials appreciate this seminal piece of film and writing?

Why can't zoomers and millennials appreciate this seminal piece of film and writing?

People born before 1980 consider it the greatest film and literary masterpiece of all time. What went wrong with our culture and people?

While we ponder this, here's a word from Robert Duvall (93 years old god bless) at the unveiling of the Gus Mcae statue last year in Salado, Texas:

    Not to go all Cinemaphile but the book is good too. They adapted others into miniseries and such but none of them rivaled this.

      Understatement. Lonesome Dove is considered one of the finest American literature ever written. Even the author who wrote it (Larry McMurtry) could not possibly understand how great it truly was even up until his death.

      the sequels are really good too, at least the books, i haven't seen the series for those. though i will say they have a darker, more despairing tone than LD

      No. Perhaps you are too young. I should change the OP to before 1970, because literally everyone born before then knows what Lonesome Dove is and adores it more than anything.

      one of the main characters is a prostitute who gets abducted and raped by indians and a side character is a housewife who was in love with one of the mcs but instead married and had kids with a horse trader who is in a coma from being kicked in the head and has to take care of him. all of this is mostly secondary to the thematic heart of the book but chicks love that battered women stuff.

            Watching the series then reading the books is a good decision too. In case you want to read Gus and Call and the other fellers in the actor's voices which are perfect.

            The name always put me off it. It just sounds kinda fruity, lol.

              Sure, but if I've got 2 books and one's called "lonesome dove" and the other one's called "blood meridian" guess which one I'm picking.

                Both came out the same year. Both authors were the same age when they were published. Lonesome Dove, hands down, is infinitely better, and infinitely more rereadable.

                Reminds me too Charles Goodnight who Call talks with near the end of the book (and lives on his land in the first sequel) was the real life inspiration for Call. He got fantastically rich as a cattle baron after driving cattle from Texas to Cheyenne with Oliver Loving and owned the Palo Duro canyon. He treated his ranch hands very well especially back then, their bunkhouses had electricity. When he died in the 20s he had long become something of a recluse, I guess from watching the dream of the West fade before him.

    Pea Eye got interested for a minute. The beans and sowbelly had revived him. He had been very interested in the notion of emancipation and had studied over it a lot while he went about his work. It was obviously just pure luck that he himself hadn’t been born a slave, but if he had been unlucky Lincoln would have
    freed him. It gave him a certain admiration for the man.
    “He just freed Americans,” he pointed out to Bolivar.
    Augustus snorted. “You’re in over your head, Pea,” he said. “Who Abe Lincoln freed was a bunch of Africans, no more American than Call here.”
