Blood Meridian's narrator is not an authorial voice that exists outside the narrative. The narrator is Judge Holden himself.
The narrator is Samuel Chamberlain's spirit form, possessing Cormac's mind. The Kid is Chamberlain. The kid didn't murder or rape any children, and the Judge was never in the outhouse; the only thing left in the outhouse was the spirit of the kid and about 80lbs of cowboy shit. The man lived happily everafter.
ok guys, my goal is to make a basic 50-100 pages short story.
my plan is to use that as the basics upon a magazine will be made about the story, with fake ads about locations and characters inside the story, stuff like fake interviews with the characters and the story being told with diferent articles about diferent aspect of the story.
I wanna do this because I've fallen in love with graphic design and plain text doesn't feel like it would give me all those aesthetical pleasures a magazine layout could give me (layout, designing basic geometric shapes,...

I recently picked up pic related because I want to into philosophy and I've been told these are the basically the classics. What are some other must read books for those who are interested in philosophy? I'm almost done with Meditations by Aurelius and am enjoying it, any recommendations for other stoic philosophers would be appreciated as well.
What /lit/erary courses are you taking in the coming semester, anon? What's your major?
What /lit/ thinks about these different ways to concieve the philosophy?
What are Books that changed your life /lit/?
no worries, it basically died from people only posting jokes anyway instead of being serious so we can always do a serious one here
just a tip for next time though if you want a more serious thread where people open up you would be better off posting a picture that is more neutral like a nature scene so people don't feel like the thread is being made by a joker/troll/etc.
I'm trying to read a bunch of books that deal with themes like: islands, corruption of man, jungles, savages, stuff like that.
Do you have any suggestions beyond what I've already read? (Robinson Crusoe, Heart of Darkness, Island of Doctor Moreau, and pic related.)
Feel free to suggest classics or anything, really.
What does /lit/ think of alex supertramp
Seeing this photo reminds me of when we read this shitty book in high school senior year. There was a qt 3.14 in that class but I never grew the balls to ask her out to prom and then she ended going with someone else. /wastedyouth/ ;_;
Can you recommend me anything else to get my sea legs?
What are the best books on psychology?
Is this too long to justify reading through it?
Can we ever have one thread that isn't fucking stupid? Does everything have to be "Is this worth reading?" "Thoughts?" "What does /lit/ think of this?" "I started this but I don't want to finish it."
Can we ever talk about a book one time? I shitpost all day here and I still want to talk about a real fucking book one fucking time. Can you just go read this book and then come back and we'll fucking talk about it you piece of shit?
David Bowie's favorite books:
What do you think?
I'm choosing to believe that Eliot, Bellow, and Nabokov were included because they were real favorites of his, while Junot Diaz and Michael Chabon were included because they were friends of Iman or something.
You see this people? This is how you be a true patrician, by having your own interests that you deep dive into while still familiarizing yourself with the classics. You get such a sense of David Bowie as a person from this list.
Who else going to lose all hope for life to get better tomorrow?
I want to buy my friend a birthday gift. He's very interested in highly psychological subject matter, as well as "intimate" personal stories. The last book he loved was "The Book of Disquiet." Would you guys have any recommendations for what I should get him?
