What does /lit/ think of Sherman Alexie? I enjoyed Flight and am wondering if any of his other stuff is good.
>>we talked about nothing and everything
What comes after imageboards and memes, from a literary perspective?
What are your favorite fairy tales/traditional stories, lit? That is, old stories that were passed down and have no designated author.
>[,,,] the total scab-free solidarity and performative silence that struck floor-shows and soundstages from Desert to NJ coast for over half a year until equitable compensation-formulae on certain late-millenial phone-order restrospective TV-advertised So-You-Don't-Forget-Order-Before-Midnight-Tonight-type records and CDs were agreed on by Management.
Fuck you DFW you incredbly up-your-ass bandana'd asshole.
I wonder how much if Infinite Jest he actually proofread or if he was just churning out page after page of hyphenated smartass quips about society without giving them a second thought.
Virtue ethics has the strongest critique of liberal modernity. Western society is in decline because they've forgotten Aristotle and the virtues. The enlightenment was a mistake. Emotivist culture (ex. SJWs) is a direct result of Nietzsche's response to the ethics of the Enlightenment. Aristotle is the only philosopher who can go beyond post-modern relativism.
Virtue ethics are some of the most popular books ever sold and arguable the most influential philosophy of the last 40 years along with capitalist thought.
It's just people don't like to talk about Ayn Rand like she has any influence.
who is "next"?
just started my collection desu
MOM'S GONNA FREAK!!!
Shoud I buy this, /lit/?
So, what is it to be done, according to Lacan?
Does /lit/ like Lord Dunsany?
Personally. he's my favorite poet. I like his prose, and the imagery he conveys. It's funny, that I don't particularly like Lovecraft, but the few things by him I do like are his stories and poems that he admitted himself (and are obvious to everyone else, regardless of his admittance) are Dunsany-inspired.
Works from him I particularly enjoy are:
The Kith of the Elf-Folk
The Doom of La Traviata
The Unhappy Body
Gravity's Rainbow > V. > Mason & Dixon > The Crying of Lot 49 > Bleeding Edge
Mao II > White Noise > The Names > Ratner's Star > Underworld > Libra
American Pastoral > Portnoy's Complaint
Blood Meridian > The Road > No Country for Old Men
I dont wink dat what u tink is his top more is weally a top ofur ciz it is more of is new works you listen he is more like an older guy liker
also you know his favortie is Leopold Bloom you knnow why, its the name you know.
Just gonna rate what I read
Americana > Point Omega
Gravity's Rainbow > Inherent Vice > Bleeding Edge > The Crying of Lot 49
Outer Dark = Child of God > Blood Meridian > The Road
Was he like that?
He looked like a fake ass person to me.
This movie fucking sucked on movie terms.
It fucking sucked in realistically portraying dfw terms as well. People will walk away from the movie with completely the wrong impression about who dfw was, both in terms of what he really cared about and how he acted.
The other actor sucked as well.
I finished this one yesterday and The ending had me tearing up, which I was not expecting. What books got to you, /lit/?
