I remember really liking "Eve: the empyrean age" when I was 16-17, but honestly I knew nothing about literature at the time and can't say with any surety that it was any better than the books you just tried.
Why has it become cool to read? It didn't used to be this way.
capitalism tries its best to make anything that involves buying and selling cool. books aren't quite as cool as video games or movies, though, because those products funnel the profits towards corporations and not individual humans.

Yes yes yes, its finally happening. I've waited so long for this day.
Does anyone else find quotations to be a convoluted clusterfuck of prosebreaking shitty rules?
Is the Cormac Mccarthy style of just eliminating quotation marks completely and having quotes in plain text on a new line the best way?
Personally it makes a lot of sense to me. It preserves the natural flow of the text without adding in ambiguity.
I think there's an added bit of artistry with McCarthy in that it's never unclear who is talking or what is happening. But potentially there would be, which makes quotations easier. I think his artistry has to stand in relation to the typical convention. He's purposefully and knowingly doing it.

Some guy on /wsr/ told me that /lit/ was the best place to discuss theater, so lets discuss the curious incident of the dog in the nighttime.

Ignoring the "redpill", Dugin definately is worth a look. He's often called a fascist by western academia, but Neo-Eurasianism is much more complicated and in my view it does transcend the simplistic left/right paradigm. You can find many of his translated essays on archive.com and his lectures on youtube. He's less practical than the European New Right though, and definatley more crazy than de Benoist who he often collaberates with
itt: /lit/ memes you fell for
thanks faggots, now I'm depressed as fuck
This one understand why someone would be sad, however, doesn't the realization that life only has the meaning you give it and you are not tied by anything except what you tie yourself to make you feel liberated ?, I mean I know I could just grab my things and walk straight north without giving notice to anyone, I could but I don't want to because I enjoy my life I find that really relaxing :^)
Best books about the sea, sailing, whaling, or fishing? Preferably nothing too modern
