Write poems using as many /lit memes as possible.
Hard mode: They have to be good.
Once upon a time I
thought up a little rhyme
and posted it to /lit/
so they could call it shit.
That feeling one gets with no gf
Reading Wallace by the fire.
Awaiting the approaching death
Of literature's turgid sire.
Maybe I'll post in a poetry thread,
Thinking about Pepe Grenouille.
Another chance, before I am dead,
To post another dank me me.
I am the eternal literature pleb
Never posting with flowers
Nothing really rymes with pleb
Maybe I should just post meowers.

Let us share some of our favorite theologians from the past century, Im reading The Courage to Be by Paul Tillich, who is considered a Christian Existentialist. Who should I read next, /lit/?
PS. Reminder that it is 20th century only, but if you really wanna share someone from the 19th century (and it's not Kierkegaard) well then thats fine i suppose. God Bless you anons

I'm reading through game of thrones right now there I said it.
There are two definitions to good. There's the definition of good referring to morality, such as good vs. evil, and there's the definition of good referring to objective claims, such as good vs. bad.
Neither of these definitions are similar to or mean "like" and it's subjective variants. When you say "something is good," you're not saying "I like something."
So why is there such a prevalent use of the word "good" being interchangeable with "like" in our society?
Why use the word "Good," something that's been useful for defining positive moral and objective qualities, to describe something you like but have little knowledge of, when you could simply use the word "like" because the predetermined definition is much different and actually applies to your stance?
Saying "I like thing" versus "thing is good" will prevent people from being pointlessly debated over opinions. It's standoffish.
What do you prefer, /lit/?

Just curious on what your thought are of this guy as an author?
>“You know, I don’t want to be offensive. But ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ [regarded by many as Green’s masterpiece] is just awful. It seems ridiculous to have to say it. He can’t think, he can’t write. There’s no discernible talent.”
>[Green] seems to have been a very sincere and troubled person, but that doesn’t mean I have to endure reading him. I even resented the use of the term from Shakespeare, when Cassius says to Brutus: "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that...
