While /lit/ is normally about high literature and philosophy, let's take a little vacation. I'll post some pictures of my collection of low culture paperbacks from the 1950s-1980s and answer questions.
Was reality always as ridiculous and absurd as its today?
Take a look at modern causes people are fighting for, or modern martyrs of western world (ie "victims" of "cyberbullying")
>Was reality always as ridiculous and absurd as its today?
From a practical point of view, probably not. Most people were peasants, with limited access to external news. Their world was all about planning and working from day to day to raise crops and livestock to feed their families, with most of what they needed covered by their own production rather than indirectly through wages. That's an extremely purposeful existence.
What are some good novels set in Vietnam war?
everyone here hates him but i've never seen a criticism outside of
>he's an idiot
why is he so wrong?
He plays it safe.
My only complaint is he isn't willing to question 9/11 the same way he did for the other stuff, even though it is so tantamount to current US foreign policy.
No matter how he writes if off, it is still a gaping hole.
Write drunk, edit sober? More like write drunk, throw everything in the trash the next day. This is the kind of insane trite I write when I'm shitfaced. It's always some sort of nonsensical erotic fiction. Worst part is I blackout and don't ever remember writing it, so I'm not sure if I do it as a joke or if I'm an actual retard.
>so Im not sure if I do it as a joke or if I'm an actual retard.
I love you anon, keep on trolling yourself.
/lit/ I think we should Attempt the impossible. We write a coherent novel, with an actual plot, readable writing, and less forced memes. I know it seems impossible since the last attempts have ended dreadfully but I believe they were just learning mechanisms so that we can improve our way of handling how we do things.
I think the best way to handle how we choose the plot is by rolling or deciding it as a group. Once one is chosen we can select a subgenere just for specifics.
Fantasy- High, urban
Scifi- hard or space opera

High-Fantasy Mystery set in Bronze age civilization.
story is third person perspective but sometimes a narrator whom is the literal embodiment of /lit/ starts talking about how shit the story is and how everyone involved should just kill themselves; how gay all the characters are ETC.
What does /lit/ think about tattoos, specifically literary ones? Do any /lit/izens have any tattoos? Here's mine.
Hey /lit/, do you guys have charts like /tv/ of /mu/ does?

Does free will exist?
ITT: best book you've read so far this year
trying to into reading. is this list good?
/lit/, I've never really read much poetry but I'd like to start. Where should I begin?
You're in luck and you've come to the right place. There one or a couple of douches on /lit/ who love to post their poetry all day every day.
Poetry is dead and you shouldn't want to get into it at all, but I won't stop you.
Hello /lit/ I come from /a/. I am sick of being a mangafag and hunger for a world of carefully crafted stories.
Have I come to the right place?
I am tormented by the specters of beautiful young women I know and their expectations
do you think dogs are tormented by the specters of the beautiful cars they chase and their expectations?
that's my latest metaphor for sex. it's a feeling designed to make you have children. if you're not doing it for reproduction, the act is essentially as empty as a dog chasing a car.
What are some classics that deal with loneliness?
