I wonder if they'll start with the greeks
For some strange reason, I imagine half the Aristotle episode is going to be about how he hates women, and half the Plato episode about how he hates democracy, and half the Neechee episode about how he's a nazi mysogynist anti social nerd.
Is there right-wing surrealism worth reading? Is there fascist surreal literature?
I've been told fascists saw it as an aberration as a general rule. But I imagine there must be something interesting out there. I am not looking for anti-communist surrealism, like I found in Bulgakov because that seems to be very easy to find.
What is /lit/'s opinion on prose?
There are different explanations (words not in verse, words in best order, etc).
Is there some specific order to arrange your words, so as to be widely accepted?
Do you have to use as many obscure old archaic words as possible?
Do you have to fit as many double entendres as possible in a sentence /paragraph?
What is purple prose? What is pink prose?
I guess a prose thread.
Give examples of your best prose, possibly a paragraph long, on any topic, others judge your ability.
Which stories in this are absolutely top tier/must reads? Perhaps a better question is, are there any that one should avoid/not bother with? Just got finished with the Aleph, my top five so far are probably "The Library of Babel", "The Lottery of Babylon", "The Garden of Forking Paths", "The Two Kings and the Two Labyrinths", and "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius".
Also general Borges thread.
OP here. I would tend to agree with you so far (minus a few stories that just didn't catch to me personally, but objectively I can respect). I think I'm just starting to fatigue from reading the same themes being elaborated on (mirrors, labyrinths, infinities). Might try to find something to read alongside it.
Should I buy this book, family?

Here is a short story I recently finished.
What's the best translation of 'The Idiot'?
Hello /lit/. I'm searching for any sites I can use to download my textbooks. Most of the pirating sites I use come up blank for what I'm looking for. Are there any sites /lit/ would recommend?
Imposing pile, reared up 'midst pleasant grounds,
The scene of many a battle, lost or won,
At cricket or at football; whose red walls
Full many a sun has kissed 'ere day is done.
So I've been listening to some horror podcasts and they all have stories of HP Lovecraft and his Old Ones, Ctulhu, Yog-Sothoth, TharyysJarkUlghar the hundred headed goat and the likes. That shit isn't scary at all.
This is some shit that he wrote
...There is life eternal within the eater of souls. Nobody is ever forgotten or allowed to rest in peace. They populate the simulation spaces of its mind, exploring all the possible alternative endings to their life. There is a fate worse than death, you know...
How is having "a fate worse than death"...

>How is having "a fate worse than death" supposed to be scary?
Look, when you actually arent in front of your screen writing this stuff and you actually face something that can kill you you will be scared. It is a normal reaction in every living creature basically.
A fate worse than death would be a state where you would rather not exist than experience that forever.
Stop trying to be so fucking edgy.
Tips on reading this?
Open the 'cover' or outer layer of the book away from the pages from the opposite side of the hinge or 'spine', proceed to interpret the signs of the pages into words, turning each page over as you exhaust it.
Then if you really want to read some critical analysis of it on the internet or something, the book itself is fairly self explanatory.
Okay /lit/ make connections using Cuckoo's Nest. Text to Text, World and Self. Go.
I 'm looking for marketing books that include guides to make plans, manuals, briefs or anything that can be delivered to the customer . What would you recommend?
Might have better luck on /biz/.
https://www.warriorforum.com is what I used to use for above ground stuff, they were pretty happy to oblige, and blackhatforums is what i used for spamming advertisements.
Marketing literature is useless because it is mostly theoretical.
>you will never master the Apolline and Dionysiac forces
>you will never create beautifully ordered drama upon the primordial Oneness of world-spirit
>you will never match the universal artistry of Greek paedophiles from two and a half thousand years ago
Modern man is fractured and cannot achieve the great holism that came naturally to the Greeks.
