Sorry to dump this stuff on you, /lit/.
I'm a fairly /lit/erate person, I'm not an idiot when it comes to writing (I do freelance for a paper, actually) and at my uni we're having a big assignment soon. I have to compare Romeo and Juliet to To Kill A Mockingbird by how the two contrast in the themes of fear and hope or love and desperation. Romeo and Juliet is easy, but TKAM? Literally nothing happens!
TL;DR I need some ideas for a comparative essay, help me, I beg of you.
Just mention how both TKAM and R&J present situations concerning hope in the face of the inevitable. TKAM has Tom Robinson, the black man accused of rape during a time when there was an enormous stigma against black people, with zero hope of ever being proclaimed innocent, while Romeo and Juliet fall in love and try to keep their affair going despite the mounting angers of both families. Both eventually climax in a permanent end, a death (of Robinson and Romeo/Juliet) voiding the entire story, ending the hope.

Who are the best lyricists of 21st century?
I thought you all were joking about this, but no. It's very real.
Has there ever been a /lit/ meet up?
What would it be like?
Have you ever met anyone who browses /lit/ irl?
When I went to see The end of the Tour, there was a guy quietly standing alone in line, a few metres behind reading Gravitys rainbow.
Everyone else in the theatre were 'artsy' rich kids.
I've no way to know for sure, but I know for a fact that a few of you guys are from Melbourne, so just maybe.

Big fan of Thompson, just finished reading kingdom of fear, pretty good biography, gonzo is such a unique style. The dense politics were a bit much especially for an Australian but I still could appreciate it however
Behold the em dash, /lit/.
How do you like to format your em dashes? Do you even use them? What do you use?
>Like — this?
>Like -- this?
>Like - this?
>Like-this? (I seriously hope you guys don't do this.)
Which novel has the best closing sentence?
Where should I start if I want to get a good grip of cultural theory?
I just don't want to read about critical theory, I want to be able to apply it myself, reaching my own conclusions.
woops misread 'cultural theory' as 'critical theory'
anyways, you're barking up the wrong tree. 'cultural theory' is even more broad then 'critical theory' and critical theory is really fucking broad, because 'culture' (and 'theory' t-b-h) can mean many radically different things to different people
you're better off starting from the basic sociology with foundations in philosophy and moving on from there
Besides 'A Clockwork Orange', what books has /lit/ read by Anthony Burgess?
So I've been hearing all kinds of shit about Huraki Murakami and I've been bored of western writers lately. Is he worth reading?
Hey /lit/, I'm curious about your book buying habits.
>What proportion of your current net worth to you believe you will end up spending on books before you die?
>What is your current net worth in dollars (purchasing power)?
(No need to account for inflation in book prices, if you do, then let the rest of us know you did)
(Yes, I am aware that you will actually be spending the money from your salary, not your current net worth, because most of you plan...
