Dear /lit/, I have been with you guys for a little over a year, and I really enjoyed this board for what it was: discussions of literature, however since a flock of redditors and new people came to this board and just shitposted none stop of everything not /lit/, I will have to say goodbye. I'll check back in a few months but until then good luck trying to fix this piece of shit board up. It was a nice board. Hopefully you guys can get it together so it won't be like /pol/ or /tv/. Anyhow if you see a post that is not lit ignore it or say not literature not lit.
Been posting here for two years, and I don't see a problem. It's the same threads we've always had, about the same books and authors. I think you're just one guy trying to stir up shit 'cause he's bored.
Is this worth reading/is it good?
Are there any modern philosophers that will be immortalized in the annals of history?
What's the best 1-volume collection of the complete works of Shakespeare?
I got this and I freaking love it:
Although it's the biggest, least fun book to read on my library. Heavy, hardback and on Bible paper. I still buy the little Folger or Yale University Press books to read his plays. It's basically a plush piece for my shelf that I only open if I'm looking up a particular sonnet but I love it.
Hey /lit/ I'm just starting out a collection of books because I recently found out how much I truly love reading. I have a list of books I want to get but other than that I really don't know any great books I should read. So far I have in my ownership 1984 (favorite), Farenheit 451, Heart of The Sea, Hunger Games Trilogy, and some other short novels.
>TLDR: What are some must read books I should use to start my collection
Hey /lit/. Just wanted your recommendation on The Asian Saga by James Clavell, and what books to read and avoid.
I've heard that Shōgun is really good but I don't know.
I've reserved a few books from the local library. Please rate them, /lit/, and tell me if I've chosen any duds.
-Game of Thrones
-The Seven Basic Plots (Pic related)
-The Once and Future King
Never so much as touched it, neither the show nor the books. You can't blame me for being curious as to what it's all about. It's like not knowing what Harry Potter's all about circa mid 2000s, it drives you crazy.
“I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.”
If someone is just interested in literature but doesn't care about music or film or any other art form for that matter, is that person a pleb?
I'd say yes, but I don't really believe in the pleb / patrician duality so I'll just say that he's cutting himself out of a lot of what life could offer and he's renouncing endless possibilities to create meaning.
I think these days people have better access to the arts and anyone interested in one of the arts is generally interested in others too.
However of course people studying literature in 1940 wouldn't have seen Film as anything worth their time and probably didn't have much access/knowledge to music. Same with the other visual arts.
So no it doesn't matter, literature is literature, it's just kind of expected in the internet age.
I have a feeling you're just some /mu/ fag looking for validation that his faggy indie pop is as artistically...

If we live the best reality possible, how come terrible things happen to people?

Can we get a blog thread going? I want to find good writing on the net.
I'll start by listing a few I like

What do you think of suicide? As a theme in literature and as an action one might perform someday.
Hey guys I just checked out Anna Karenina from the library, I've never read a full novel by Tolstoy only some of his short stories. What should I expect? Will it blow my dick off?
