I would like to contact Slavoj Žižek by email- but how does one go about finding their email?
Are there any other literary figures like this guy that is easier to contact? I am trying to get a hold of them for scholastic purposes.
I found his email on the site of Philosophical Faculty of university of Ljubljana, but I think it's outdated, nobody uses arnes as their email anymore.
>This world was created from God's fear of solitude. In other words, us, the creatures, have no other meaning but to distract the Creator. Poor clowns of the absolute, we forget that we live dramas for the boredom of a spectator, whose claps have never reached the ears of a mortal.
What's the point of an author referencing previous works of literature? It seems lazy to me.
Does anyone know of any other good literature forums on the internet? I don't have many problems with /lit/, and I have a few with /his/, but they're both fairly slow – so I'd like extra sources of discussion someplace else.
I don't have anything good but this post reminded me of the poetry forum I frequented back in high school
Some of these poems don't even make me cringe Tbh fàm
Let's get this thing rolling!
>It is possible I already had some presentiment of my future. The locked and rusted gate that stood before us, with wisps of river fog threading its spikes like the mountain paths, remains in my mind now as the symbol of my exile. That is why I have begun this account of it with the aftermath of our swim, in which I, the torturer's apprentice Severian, had so nearly drowned.

So /lit/, which is better, cheap happiness or exalted suffering?

Why did he kill himself /lit/?
How's /lit/ doing this morning?
I've been up since very early this morning reading A Scanner Darkly by Philip K. Dick. Just finished it a few minutes ago and might start Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said in a little while.
What's everyone eating/drinking for breakfast? I'm about to make a cup of coffee with cream and sugar and maybe have some Shreddies.
What's everyone doing? I'm going to be looking for work for most of the morning, and after that maybe do something like watch a movie. I was thinking of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. That...

Is there a comfier book than this one?

What should I read?
What are your thoughts on this?
how come /lit/ doesn't get smarter over time?
if you've been on /lit/ for a long time, surely you're aware of the idea that this is a pretty sophomoric board, mostly pretentious undergrads. but this has always been the case. "/lit/ has always been shit".
but shouldn't the original undergrad population of /lit/ already have graduated? or are /lit/izens a rolling demographic, bleeding out people, and acquiring new plebs at sort of equal rate (which would explain the permanence of some threads).
idk, what's the deal?
