ITT books of childhood
I don't remember what happens all I remember is that I really liked this book
I'd like to start reading Mishima, but I only have enough money for one book at the moment (lots of bills this month.)
Which should I start out with, /lit/?
Spring Snow, The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea, or the Temple of the Golden Pavilion?
Posting this arbitrarychart which you could have found in the sticky.
Has this country produced any literature of worth post 1945?
I actually wonder myself. I've been waiting patiently for someone on /lit/ to recommend something written in England during the 20th century bc most of the serious writing by native English speakers seems to have been done by Americans and Irishmen.
Is there any really good novel like story of the eye that has scat? Story of the eye had a ton of piss sex but no scat.
Homer passed away today
Could a man like Homer even exist today? in this modern age?
i'd imagine he would have just ended up in prison for a long time in his 20s
especially in this very emasculated culture
got a problem, conservative bitch?
what THE FUCK is up with that disgusting scat/BDSM scene and river boat thing or whatever? why did Thomas Pynchon write that depraved lunacy?
>owning paper books
Literally why when Kindle's can store more books than most peoples houses can contain?
Which one is the best?
This is seriously one of the most boring and tedious books I have ever fucking read in my life. It's just a guy walking around town and speaking nonsense.
correct. i have put it down twice now in the last 3 years. will probably pick it up again at some point but as of now i only want to read it to say ive read it.
Agreed. I read it in French too for the practice, but decided there were better French books to read than that and stopped. The autodidact was the most interesting part of the book. Why is this book so acclaimed?
What think, especially the eastern european part of /lit/?
What is the great American novel?
So, what's the deal with Deleuze?
I've read that you can't understand him without Greeks, Descartes, Hume etc., but also that people who know too much about western philosphy had problems to understand, while people who did not read these understood Capitalism and Schizophrenia perfectly.
So... what is the consensus? Should you read these philosophers whom Deleuze liked and wrote about (Nietzsche, Bergson, Foucault, Spinoza etc.), should you read pre-ancient and forward or should you just jump in?
One of you claimed a couple weeks ago that this had the most immersive prose they've ever read but really it is just so fucking mediocre. Why do you always lie to me /lit/?
Has anyone read pic related? Is it worth picking up?
