I’m gobsmacked by how often the word “obtuse” is misused, and misused with great flamboyance. “Obtuse”, people, means nothing more complicated or intense than “a lack of intelligence or sensitivity”. So stop referring to the work of your favourite writers or poets (or your own work for that matter) as obtuse. You’re probably thinking of something midway between “obscure” and “abstruse” (both of which are slightly more dashing words and indicate something that’s enigmatic or difficult to understand, which is the meaning you’re likely looking for).
When you preen and tell me that you are stimulated by “obtuse writing”, I begin to suspect that maybe you really are.
Also, “loath” and “loathe” are different words, with separate meanings. Look them up. One is an adjective, the other a verb. The correct phrase is “I am loath to do this”, not “I am loathe ...”. (It is of course possible that you really, really, really hate [i.e. “loathe”] doing something, but don’t say “I am loathe to do it” - it’s ungrammatical.)
Special note to the children working on the entertainment beats in Delhi Times, HT City, etc: Avoid using “prequel” if you don’t know what it means. Don’t use it interchangeably with “predecessor”. Like a sequel, a prequel is produced/published after a pre-existing work; the only difference is that it deals with events that occurred at an earlier time. Harry Potter 2 is a sequel to Harry Potter 1, but this does not mean Harry Potter 1 was the prequel to Harry Potter 2.

And yes, all this comes from someone who promptly tossed his Wren & Martin into the fire the day his parents told him he was now old enough to destroy books. But I’m allowed to be pedantic once a year.
