Was the ending of 1916 edition of The Mysterious Stranger Twain's own work or that of the posthumous editing?
I don't understand, why build such a long narrative and then blow it away like that? If humanity is flawed to the point where it is so absurd it might just be a dream, a fantasy, why care about it at all and construct the narrative? I don't understand.
Writers who satisfy your autism.

Was it suicide, and why if it was? Was it because he lost faith in his own philosophy?
No more riding the frequencies.
Desde 1992, seus pulmões, afetados por um câncer, funcionavam com um terço da capacidade. Em 1995, só respirava com a ajuda de aparelhos. Sem poder realizar seu trabalho, Deleuze atirou-se pela janela do seu apartamento em Paris, em 4 de novembro de 1995. Seus seguidores consideraram seu suicídio coerente com sua vida e obra: "Para ele, o trabalho do homem era pensar e produzir novas formas de vida"
PT wiki, if you can understand portuguese.
Well just finished The Old Man and the Sea.
What was so special I don't get it.
You guys make books sound like orgasms but it was just a dude in a boat.
Do I just not understand literature? What was I supposed to get out of it?
>hemmmingway was just a hack
What do you all think of this book?
Reading it right now, really enjoying it.
Hi /lit/. I've been avoiding feeling anything for a very long time, and am currently trying to rekindle my repressed emotions. Trying to reach any answer about life purely analytically has led me into despair, and I cried for the first time in years yesterday. Any books you would recommend for this feel? I'm mostly into philosophy, but my disinterest in fiction is probably a symptom in itself.
Same anon here
Also, are you adverse to texts with particularly religious sentiment? I'm struggling to think of a book concerning the virtue of emotional appeal that isn't also steeped in Christianity
What should I skip in this backlog, /lit/?
It started as a great novel in the first chapter, became a bit more boring in the two next chapters, and is rather dull in the part about the murders.
It's just "here's some woman, she has been vaginally and anally raped, and we just can't find any lead" all over again. Does it get better? Am I missing something?
The point is that you become desensitized to the brutality of the crimes, just like those who investigate this shit in real life do. Roberto Bologna is a genuis, and frankly, you should go back to hop on pop if you can't figure this out.
First person narration is a meme.
>muh downfall into madness XD
Did i get memed hard?
Is he right?
"made a huge mistake" is code for "it's a trap"
which is code, if I have to explicate this for you too, for "a tranny"
which means a girl with a dick
it's implying sideways that only biological males read this
like everybody is doing (the implication, not the reading)
>ADA OR ARDOR
so when your talking about the book right, do you say the title straight or do you say ada or ARDOR maybe a bit like jd and turk on scrubs like it's innuendo or something, is that what nabokov was going for maybe?
Other than the Bible and other religious texts, is there anything worthwhile written in Hebrew?
I MAJORED IN LIT
HOW THE FUCK DO I GET A JOB
