Describe the first time you saw her, /lit/
we were smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee on opposite sets of steps one morning, I was 19 and she was 23. she came over the next night when my friends were around and it all went great.
>ITT: We take pleb-tier pop lit and pick it apart for substance
Hey /lit/, what are some good versions of bad books?
E.g. Foucault's Pendulum vs. The Da Vinci Code
How does /lit/ regard her work?
Jukes Verne thread? What's your favorite book? I'm currently reading Journey to the Interior of the Earth and it's pretty fun. What did you enjoy by him?
Anybody see this in The New York Times?
It's official now: David Foster Wallace is the most important contemporary writer of our time.
I went to my local library, and guess what. It wasn't on the shelf. A check of the catalog and apparently, no version at the library.
They did have Trump's Crippled America though-which I checked out with the qt3.14 at the desk.
What /lit thoughts on this guy? I took a couple poetry classes from him back in the time before most of you faggots wuz born.
I enjoyed the class even though I only got a B. His poetry form book totally trashed my "open verse", "free verse", "non structured" poetry style, and I started to feel comfortable writing poetry with structure.
Also, I want to state it publicly. I borrowed his book, "The New Book of Forms" from the college library, but I never returned it, because I was soooo frustrated that I stabbed it with a Ka-bar knife. I also spat on it, and threw it down the hallway of the dorm.
I still have it. And the college library charged me for the full retail value later, before giving me my degree. (Its good to vent anonymously)
Dirty Limerick style makes dirty poems easy.

Next time, don't include bits like these.

/lit/ is never going to get a stable archive
Alright lit, let's see how many well accomplished (and possibly unduly ignored) non-meme authors we can name. I'll begin:
Was David Foster Wallace always this horrendously fat and disgusting?
I am yet to see a picture of David at the weight they portrayed him in TEOTT.
Jason was on a strict diet of hot pockets and cream puffs, and was told not to do any strenuous activity in preparation for the film.
I have a feeling it had something to do with Jason looking a bit too tall and lanky, as appose to david having more of a stocky build. They probably planned on making him gain weight, and then getting him to tone, but ran out of time.
The Wallace estate as well as his editor have disavowed the film, not because it gets anything factually wrong but because it does something that Wallace would never have wanted: it turns him into a character.
It's very hard to take the end of this movie seriously with Eisenberg’s Lipsky crying while reading to a large crowd from his own book about Wallace while the movie flashes back to David dancing a free-form, child-like dance in slow-motion inside a church; it’s an image — an embarrassing idea — that would drive any writer as smart and image-conscious...

Why isn't /lit/ reading this series? It's really good, the author deserves more credit imo. The characters are fleshed out well, the pacing is nice, the dialogue is decent.
If I had to give it an honest rating 8/10, which is honestly pretty good for a new author. It has a sequel already and the author has said she's working on number 3.
I can't wait for the newest one, I think /lit/ will agree with me.
Was it suicide, and why if it was? Was it because he lost faith in his own philosophy?
No more riding the frequencies.
Desde 1992, seus pulmões, afetados por um câncer, funcionavam com um terço da capacidade. Em 1995, só respirava com a ajuda de aparelhos. Sem poder realizar seu trabalho, Deleuze atirou-se pela janela do seu apartamento em Paris, em 4 de novembro de 1995. Seus seguidores consideraram seu suicídio coerente com sua vida e obra: "Para ele, o trabalho do homem era pensar e produzir novas formas de vida"
PT wiki, if you can understand portuguese.
This was my first McCarthy. Enjoyed it a lot and want to get into some of his other, less accessible stuff. Where do I go next with McCarthy?
Did you like War & Peace /lit/?
Was the ending of 1916 edition of The Mysterious Stranger Twain's own work or that of the posthumous editing?
I don't understand, why build such a long narrative and then blow it away like that? If humanity is flawed to the point where it is so absurd it might just be a dream, a fantasy, why care about it at all and construct the narrative? I don't understand.
