What is some good literature about Tea and tea customs?
Holy shit, this is awful.
Tried reading Bulfinch, too, and it also sucked. Can anyone give me a good intro book to Mythology?
So are the meme trilogy books actually decent, or are they glorified trash?
Ulysses is a classic of english literature and one of the most important novels ever written.
Gravity's Rainbow is a masterpiece and captures the mood of the post-war era very well.
Infinite Jest is bloated and confused, but still a nice display of talent.
Hey /lit/ I used to be big on reading but then I started to rot my mind with video games.
Now I want to get back into reading, but it's been a while and I don't have any good leads on a book to pick up.
What are some page turners? The kind of thing where I will feel the need to finish in one sitting?
Basically anything that will not be recommended by the pretentious wankers on this board.
What will he write next?
I wonder if on Twitter he documented that mustache, from his initial decision to grow it to its final form as a shitsmear on his face, absolutely disgusting but somehow possessing more artistic merit than his literary output.
The year is 2016. I decided to finally read Infinite Jest. What should I expect? What does it make so good and relevant today?
Also, I spent 2015 reading Tolstoy and Dostoivesky. Will DFW make me want to go back to the russians or he is truly great as /lit/ says?
Is his critical acclaim only because he's black?
I haven't read Seven Killings yet (I got it for Christmas) so I dunno.
I think he's pretty cool though. I did read an interview with him where he was talking about how he wanted to write a novel about vikings. He didn't like being locked into certain topics because of his ethnicity/sexual orientation and I can respect that.
I haven't read Seven Killings yet and won't till sometime middle of next year but pretty much everybody whose opinion on books I care about that has enjoyed it. Even my hard as fuck to please former English prof liked it.
So I can't say with any real opinion of my own but it does seem at least somewhat deserved.
Why do Americans think that using caps lock makes anything they say sound quirky? BECAUSE YOU SHOULD TOTALLY DONATE TO MY KICKPATREON #SAYNOTOPANHANDLING XD
Is it a go to key for diminishing responsibility through detachment? A keyboard form of vocal fry?
Why do Americans like to make everything loud and clappy?
Because they're descendants of those who get expelled from the heart of civilisation because they were not civilised enough.
This was fucking garbage.
im a pleb for disliking this?
I'm looking for an essay titled "Depersonalization, the experience of prosthesis, and our cosmic insignificance: The experimental phenomenology of an altered state."
Where can I find it without paying for a monthly subscription to some online shitshow?
I'm willing to pay a few dollars I suppose.
It's part of a journal called "Philosophical Psychology" and appears in Volume 5, Issue 3. Published in 1992.
Does anyone have access to a database of journals that this might appear in? If you're a college student, which I am not, you probably can find it through your library.
Hey guys, i'm looking for some books on Indian
mythology and folkore.
Any good recs?
so /lit/ I want to write great homo-homo stories because I want to take a hobby and I chose to write homo-homo fanfiction to pass the time.
BUT! I write like shit and I am shit yes, that's right.
how do I make girls wet their panties reading my homo-homo fics? I want to enter their minds and hear them sniff and cry and feel with my love stories.
how can I make this happen?
what are your guys' favorite words? do you think they have any connection to what you believe?
mine is slugbait, it feels right to say.
Synapse was the best hacker I knew in the cult of the dead cow so once he got busted I took on his alias and everyone thought I was he. I remember getting crazy calls at 2 in the morning asking me to hit this server or that; shit was cash. This was before Frozen Synapse or anything known which used the word and I thought it was cool as hell. Now I am the director of a company called Synaptics Limited which operates out of Hong Kong helping move illegal shipments to and from Pyongyang and China.
