If someones aim to shitpost is to annoy and be influentially a disturbance, then in nature of the shitposter, must they feel the need to produce an original shitpost, or is their still the coining satisfaction in shitposting all ready other shitposts
wow op that sentence was shittily written, are you just a bad writer or trying to write like some continental homo, which reminds me, was derrida straight? he had swag for an old nigga, but u never see him with any hos
Is there any juicy writing or collection of writings that tells cool stories (or just simply teaches) about cool Greek gods? Also I very much prefer something that would talk a lot about things like Titans and the earlier gods (Gaia, Nyx, Thalassa, etc.) that people don't talk about. Thanks
Hesiods Cosmos by Jenny Strauss Clay is a really great analysis of the early genesis of the Gods from the Titans to the first Olympians. It paints the picture of the Titans conspiring with their mother to punish their abusive father. It goes into the very underrated myth of Zeus facing down Typhon. We see how Gaea becomes a force of perpetual rebellion, always opposing the dominant authority in the cosmos regardless of who it is
So I've recently started working on my first non school related piece of creative writing (a novel). I know a lot of people on this board write, so I was wondering if their is any general advice about making a novel that would be beneficial to hear.
A problem that I had early when I started writing was I was trying to make sure the reader actually got what I wanted to say that I ended up disregarding the story in exchange for the themes and symbolism. I guess my advice would be don't get too focused on what you want the reader to get from your work, just write a good story first and then focus on the themes later.
Don't get too caught up in having a perfect opening sentence/paragraph/chapter to set the "feel" of your work. A good book will do that for itself over its course if you have enough talent, education, and attention to detail. Plus editing.
Does literature still possess enough recognition to influence the masses?
Who are some good Rightist, traditionalist, authoritarian, and or fascist poets?
I've heard Ezra Pound had a fashy streak.
This is not a thread for legitimizing or critiquing the politics of these movements, simply a discussion of the poetry in their spirit.
As far as authors (dunno about poets)
Heinlein was an unabashed Fascist, although by no means a racialist.
Junger is hard as fuck to read (that is, his motivations are hard to read), and may be very uncomfortable for most /pol/lacks as his traditionalism sees Fascism and totalitarianism as revolutionary (On the Marble Cliffs)
If you want some ultra conservative racialist traditionalist genre fic, pic related. One begins to believe Larry Niven wants to see the world burn
Hello /lit/, I am a pleb. I don't really know anything about literature that you guys would take seriously. It's not like I don't read, it's just that I don't read the right things. I just finished Call of the Wild and I will soon start Lord of the Flies. What I'm asking is, what should I read and know that will earn me some respect around here? I get into books easily, so give me your worst (
Pic, though unrelated, is my style and I was hoping maybe you could even help me find books relating.
If you want personal advice, delve into Thoreau and Emerson once you have a bit more reading under your belt, you will enjoy the themes but struggle with the prose possibly, push through and then continue to read more shit you like
Alright guys need some help because I have shit tier memory on everything I've read, looking for a book and I only remember the syphnosis lightly. Had to do with like 2 or 3 kids who did some stupid shit and it brought on the return of some evil king(shadow king or ghoul King) and that's pretty much it, I'm sure it was a trilogy, like I only read the first one. Anyone got any idea what I'm talking about
Time for a new book. Which one should I read first?
Hello /lit/. I am a literature retard, being that I haven't really read any books besides one manga named Trigun. What should I start with? I check the wiki but it has books that doesn't interest me.
I think I want to read a book that has simple philosophy, or philosophy that anyone can understand. Fiction is preferably over non-fiction.
Does /lit/ has any recommendations for a retard?
What with all the hype? I'm about halfway through and it just seems plain boring. Why should I give a fuck about the Kwisatz Haderach, or the Fremen or the spice? Seriously, it's so pointless and boring I don't think I can continue. What do you think of it /lit/?
Is Mr. Karl Dilkington the greatest philosopher of the modern era?
>read nothing but mangas for two years straight
>finally decide to get back into literature
>start with Gravity's Rainbow
>"Wow, /lit/ was right, this doesn't make any sense"
>realize in the final pages of the book that I read the whole thing right to left, like my mangas
Can anyone post the 100 books list that /lit/ did?
This thread is for questions you have about words. Help out others and get help.
If you have a thought or you're trying to search for the "proper" word for an abstraction, post what you're looking for here. And anything related.
I'll start, I'm looking for a sonorous-sounding synonym for "seating area", or just another word for that. There must be several different specific name for an area with seats
Auditorium? - or Veranda, maybe. Room does have a nice swoop to it, but it's an emphasis most readers aren't going to hear.
Colors with a bit more to them, both in sound and in hue. Not stuff like pink or purple or yellow; stuff like rosé or mauve or ocher.
