Are all Chileans this degenerate?
>implying you can tell how much degenerate behavior an author partakes in solely on the basis on reading one book they wrote
Recomemnd me good about lonely people. Something like Hunger by Knut Hamsun
I am interested in this topic but I do not know where to start.
Is this accurate /lit/?
Why don't you just read the entire Bible and find out yourself OP?
Either which way you look at it, its impossible to deny that the Holy Bible is basically one of the most major pieces of literature in not only the England language, but all of Europe.
So what do you guys think of 11.22.63 . The hulu series trailer looked promising but I've never been the biggest fan of Stephen King. My favorite from him is probably , the girl who loved Tom Gordon. Does /lit/ recommend picking it up ?
It's pretty good, more of an infomercial for the kennedy assassination than a real piece of work by king. If you liked tom gordon you probably liked King's social commentary than his plot, which if true i would recommend salem's lot
A few friends of mine recommended I read the secret life of saeed the pessoptimist. I finished it and couldn't really make sense of what was going on with saeed, aside from his being a surviving coward to every other character's brave martyrdom. Am I missing something?
Hey /lit/ what's your opinion on Cormac McCarthy? I just started The Road and it seems like what might happen if some good literature fucked an airport novel.
What's your novel about, anon? I promise I won't steal your idea.
any good books on hermeneutics?
Care to recommend some homocore, /lit/? Already read confessions of a mask and ride the tiger.

As for the Catcher in the Rye, I found it to be a quite cozy commentary on teenager angst.
Anyways, I guess I'm asking is...

Neither, you're just scared that you missed something. Hint: you didn't, they are fairly straightforward books with pretty obvious themes, and I bet that with further elaboration you'd prove to us that you understand them.
Reading should be a pleasure first and foremost, don't forget that.
Whats up with all the references to david foster wallace in Hypersphere (reading his book "a supposedly fun thing ill never do again" pretty good tbqh senpai).
Also pic related its the best book of 2016, 2017 and every year before or after its conception.
What does it mean to use description to evoke a quality in a literary work?
Is this the literature chat board? I'vebeen reading the james Joyce and I find his work finnegans wake very enjoyaable, i've also read the ezra pound and the cantos are very neat plus the archaisms, il ike those a lot. man I love literature vubt I never find places to disgust it, is this the rigt board? it says literature but it is also fulled with anime pictures and homer simpson and silly faces so im not sure are we talkers of ezra pound in there?
