Has/is anyone else reading this pretty little thing? Follow up question: can anyone explain the importance of rubber in it? It's mentioned all the time, and I really can't make heads or tails of it.
Did it predict the future of entertainment?
No, because our pictures (memes, if you want) are always joined with texts. Reading is very essential in our modern world, even if it's just for small sentences. Also many books are being sold everyday (shitty or not, it doesn't really matter in my point.)
What does /lit/ think of text-hased multiplayer roleplaying games?
Pic related, people say it's like writing a collective story.
Roleplaying in general is one of the rare mediums where postmodernism doesn't feel circle-jerky or clumsy. It rarely makes for good stories; still, the collective experience is fascinating.
What are your literary guilty pleasure's, /lit/?
I'll go first
I actually enjoyed Cathcer in the Rye. Maybe I should reread to make sure I'm not completely misremembering it, but whatever.
Catcher in the Rye is one of the greatest American novels so I don't get the problem. You think you're too cool for liking obvious classics or are you too cool to like things other people like?
Hey /lit/ I just marathoned the first 20 pages of this book. Does it get better? What did you think about it?
Just wanted to update you guys
gonna hazard a guess that the fault in our stars is only there because there are a lot of john green hate threads and we don't want to disparage authors we haven't read
I mean, we do, but it'd be retarded to do that
Show me your e-books
I read some books too in iBooks on my phone but mostly poetry and shorter works.
But it sort of trivializes my reading for some reason. I remember my books when they're physical copies
Are their books generally frowned upon by /lit/? Why? I went to the local bookstore and there were many of classics available for relatively cheap, the only thing that prevented me from buying some was because I thought I read on /lit/ that Penguin's translations are shit.
alright you janitor shit you have been deleting some really good threads and the ones you've been making have been garbage
how about you lick the diarrhea from your mom's nostrils and keep your hands off my goddamn board
what are the best german-language novels? my vote would be for jakob von gunten, the castle, radetsky march, and effi briest
What the fuck was this book about?I didnt understand shit.Did gregor actually die or did he return to being human again?Why has he turned into bug in the first place?Overall, what was this book telling?
What the book was about is open to interpretation and everyone can have an opinion on it, like with most literature. There's not correct answer. That's the good thing about books, make you think.
One perspective that I enjoy is that it's a critic on the way society treats the mentally ill and how those illnesses affect the person itself.
Hello /lit/, I'm looking for an introduction to english poetry, something that covers history of english language and poets, explains prosody in english poetry, and include some poems as sample and explain the archaic form of words.
Thanks in advance.
I've written loads of poems about what I imagine her excrement and urine smell like
This year's prize was given to Sarah Howe and her collection, "Loop of Jade".
Do you guys think one of the other poets would have been likely to win? I was personally banking on Les Murray.
I have a week to write a short story for my literature course.
Any ideas, /lit/?
Is this truly that good, or is just another meme like IJ?
It is truly good. Don't listen to anyone who says otherwise because they either didn't understand it or didn't read it. I'd give it a little over 20 years until it's recognized as one of the most important works of literature ever written.
Please actually read it before you spout shit about it.
