What the shit was Sloane's problem? Did I skip something essential, or why was he so depressed about the actual end of the war? Does this get explained later on (I'm only on page 90).
Sorry for another Stoner thread, I couldn't find the one that was posted a few days ago.
Post the comfiest book you've ever read
Hey /lit/, so I want to get Infinite Jest, and I can't decide whether to get the paperback or the hardcover.
The paperback will be $26.50, and the hardcover will be $23.80. Although the hardcover is both cheaper, and will be of better quality, because it's a hardcover, I like the paperback's cover more.
Which one would you suggest to purchase? If you have the hardcover, would you recommend it? And if you've got the paperback, would you say the quality is good for a paperback?
What I can i read to find out more about the intersectionality between marxism and feminism?
Is there any?
Well, intersectionality refers to "intersections" among groups, such as women, gender and sexual minorities, the working class, and various racialized peoples. Common struggle and all that.
But if you're asking about the relationship between Marxist thought to Feminist thought it's pretty readily apparent. IIRC there's a whole section in the communist manifesto regarding women's lib.
What does /lit/ read when they're online?
What publications have exceptional travel writing pieces? Humor? Editorials? Highly engaging blogs?
What do you guys think is the best Conan story? At least among Howard's originals.
I just started reading them and I'm pleasantly surprised. The world is realistic, vivid, and interesting; the characters and their motivations are well thought out, Conan isn't just a stupid killing machine as he is often depicted, and the stories provoke some interesting questions relating to barbarism and society.
"The Pool of the Black One" has been my favorite ever since I read it. It goes Full Lovecraft and actually has Conan sail to an entire other realm populated by inhuman monsters. Plus he kills a man just so he can steal his woman. It's fantastic.
What are the religions out there that i can study and maybe adhere to if i do not believe in an anthropomorphic/abrahamic god?i know that there is buddhism, but are there any others that you can tell me about? and some books which i can get my hands on to read about said religions.
Guys how long Divine Comedy is? I have some weird version, it says "exerpts" and its 400-500 pages long, but i counted verses and its ~14000 more or less. Yet in internet they say full version is 1000 pages long (?). Please, could anyone say how long this masterpiece is in full full version, and should i read what i got or throw it in garbage??
It's 14,233 lines, which can be as few as few hundred pages or over a thousand depending on font/spacing/notes/italian inclusion.
Not trolling, just a stupid question from a retarded atheist. If Christ is God, and he had 30 some odd years here on earth to do anything he wanted, and he didn't write the bible (or something like it), why is there any reason to think that the Holy Spirit was working through men when they wrote the bible? if God wanted to write a holy text wouldn't he have done it while he was here?
And this is about the bible and its authority as a religious text so yes, this is /lit/
God didn't want to write a holy text.
He wanted to do things described in the New Testament.
Then he left things in the hands of the apostles who are said to have been blessed by the holy spirit very directly who founded a church members of which wrote and composed the bible.
Post yours guys
write whats on your mind

Don't usually see Shakespeare discussed on /lit
O, full of scorpions is my mind
>Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood clean from my hand? No this my hand will rather the multitudinous seas incardine, making the green one red.
>All that is won and lost. Give me a kiss; even this repays me.
>No, 'tis not so deep as a well, nor so wide as a church door, but 'tis enough, 'twill serve. ask for me to-morrow, and you shall find me a grave man.
I have faith in your intelligence, /lit/.
This belongs to /lit/ for it is about The Bible, which is a book.
>God creates animals
>God creates a man and a woman
>God creates a special tree
>God orders the man and the woman to avoid eating from that tree
>a snake, which is a good creature created by God, makes the good woman created by God eat from the forbidden tree

Where do I start on Ancient Greek mythology? Specifically, the pantheon of Gods and the stories of the heroes
Mythology - Edith Hamilton
The Library of Greek Mythology - Apollodurus
The Iliad - Homer
The Odyssey - Homer
The Aeneid - Virgil
The Theban Plays - Sophocles
Heracles, Medea, Hecuba - Euripedes
The Oresteia - Aeschylus
The Metamorphoses - Ovid
Heroides - Ovid
>Mythology - Edith Hamilton
This is good if you have no knowledge at all and don't want to read Wikipedia articles
otherwise just read the original sources if you can handle them. Ovid and Homer
Poetry is meant to be read and performed!
Perform classics, contemporary works, or something of your own!
>That blend of modern white noise in the background with your performance.
>The frontal post-modern sexual themes.
>The ephemeral nature of your short words on an internet message board.
Truly a genius walks among us.
