Is print journalism a dying industry? Have we seen the last of truly "famous" writers/journalists? Seriously, nobody reads anymore. Blogging is gay as shit. What happened? Also is gonzo journalism still even a thing? Because I can only find objective pieces in magazines, which I know is typical, but why don't people see the power of a first person narrative? I know this is a ahit ton of stuff but I'm drunk and I want answers damn it!
why do writers like cats more than dogs ?
shit is trash. glad he killed himself.
Damn, really makes u think...
he aint a visionary, he was just having fun. He's said numerous times that Neuromancer was a very immature book and he wasn't happy with it. I have not read any of his other books though. can I get a rec on what's his next best?
memes and quality aside. how does he come up with so many ideas

What is /Lit/s opinion on Ellison
I did this thread a while back.
Ellison is a shit writer. It's Elliot Rodger if he read books instead of playing Wow. He lived in the time when you could still get pussy even if you were a hopeless loser and just like the Rodger, he shows that he could have been something great.
What is The VVich of literature?
You already know the answer
So "After the Race" is basically just "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" but done even better, right?
uggggggggggggggggggh what the fuck am I reading? It's impossible. She gives you no context to understand what the fuck her vague statements even mean. It's so difficult you don't even know, you're probably gonna say it's really easy too.
How much of Greek mythos do I really have to cover in depth to appreciate great works such as the Iliad and Odyssey (and of course other pieces but in particular these)? Knowing the gods of course is a must, but what else? Do I have to take a damn Greek course at uni just to get the most out of these things?
What do you think of Victor Hugo?
Based off of what I've read so far, what would /lit/ recommend I read next.
The most recent was Kafka if it helps.
Does someone here know the Epictetus similar to this?
I've recently published my first book and I'm not exactly sure how to categorize it.
Everyone that has read it tells me the usual, "very good work" or "this is amazing", but these are all people that I know. They wouldn't tell me truthfully if it was terrible.
It is written for a new adults audience and the style would, very likely, drive most "refined" readers crazy. There are several obscenities and "internet lango" throughout the book.

I'll bite, Haylie.
You're doing the right thing. Most people on this board are not, it would seem, actual writers. Actual writers just write and write and don't worry about what exactly needs to be read (i.e. 90% of the fucking threads here). They think for themselves, and they do it for themselves (mostly).
That you would be asking for feedback HERE is dangerous - but that you wrote all this is good.
In my opinion, there is some elegant writing. Some of it is very fucking obnoxious. But it is only obnoxious because of the elegance. There's...

We are alive in this place right now, what the fuck?
something touching the main themes from lord of the flies? it doesn't need to be a novel
google "robbers cave experiment"
pretty much lotf irl
>what I want is a more philosophical approach to the main theme
oh i see, you're an idiot. you should have mentioned that to start with.
if you actually did as i suggested you'd discover realistic conflict theory. this is psychology, not philosophy. still, i'm sure there's some other idiot on here who'll point out some pop-thinker whose hare-brained ideas justify your own biases.
I've only heard a few slight references to this story and now want to read it. I heard its a extremely old tale and assume its not that good sense i hear of it only once in awhile but still am interested. Are the any good translations of this story?
What are /lit/s thoughts on Houellebecq?
ITT we discuss The Recognitions. Favorite characters, the Faust parallels, the insane amount of theological background you need to get more than 50% of what's going on.
I'm scared /lit/, dark times are approaching. Of the millennial generation, few among us read, few among us know the Classics, and few among us are engaged in a life long pursuit of ever greater knowledge.
Is intellectualism on the brink of death?
Do you know any book-themed youtube channels that aren't absolutely horrible and only about shitty Fantasy YA?

Why are you guys so obsessed with purity and virtue? Is this an attitude you've always had, or did you acquire it by reading a bunch of antiquated books?
