How do I write a college essay that isn't garbage
I'm doing a six credit hour workshop, two hours a day three days a week for three months, on shakespeare to finish my Masters degree. I need to buy a very large number of shakespeare's works. I'm still very lacking in collecting classics, and thus have not chosen a uniform publisher for these types of things.
Over christmas break I need to do that because I don't want to waste a bunch of money buying these books just to replace them down the road to have a pretty book shelf.
What does /lit/ advise? What are my options for publishers who cover...

Where should I start with Lovecraft?
I want to read something with characters with massive/big powers, like, earth-shattering shit. Why? Because its fun, that's why. Of course, no comics.
Anybody has any suggestions?

Worm. Its a capeshit webserial that's actually really good. Lots of grey morality, Premise boiled down is basically otherworldly powers fucking about with earthly reality. MC is a teenage girl who controls bugs
What are some books about gaining confidence?
No shitty "self-help" books full of fillers, please.
I read a bunch of Ezra Pound for a class and I really want to keep going. What do I pick up specifically to tackle him head on?
I've read both his prose and poetry in a limited amount, and am interested in both. If I'm interested in buying everything he wrote is there a reasonable collection I can buy in a few books? If not, I'd appreciate some fairly large collections to start.
Any advice is appreciated.
Cantos should be one volume, his poetry another.
I took this one IIRC out at my library, it's pretty comprehensive:
As for the Cantos, I don't know, someone else can tell you.
Don't bother with any of his prose collections. His prose writing is really dreadful.
Here's a picture of a typical LoA hardcover. The Pound volume was more of a maroon color but otherwise looked the same. The insides were good, the pages a little thin for my taste but w/e, the typeface was OK, and the poems were formatted properly.
And here's a screenshot of one of Amazon's scans from a LoA Whitman volume to give you a sense for what I mean about the typeface. It's not awful, but it's not my favourite.
Who's your countrys most well regarded literary figure?

I'm halfway through this and it's getting really boring. I really enjoyed the beginning and thus powered through it but at the point I'm at it's debilitatingly bland. Anyone else find this?
How old were you when you realized that 1984 isn't a dystopian novel; it's a reality novel
What are some good books about space marines?
/lit/ i'm learning french, prescribe me your favorite french literature
Opinions on this book? Thinking of asking for it for Christmas.
Also, any other religious history texts which are must reads? I'm interested in the development of all the major religions.
Funny, I'm reading that exact book in my history of Christianity class.
Fantastic read but only if you're interested in history from the beginning. MacCulloch is never afraid to spend too much time on interesting details that may not carry huge significance which is something I appreciate, also he manages to remain objective while having a distinct voice throughout, something a lot of historians seem to struggle with. He also spends a lot of time delving into some of the more abstract theological concepts, which can be a make or break for a lot of people
Is this list just a meme?
So far read Mockingbird and Catcher In The Rye, both were really kind of boring.
Refuse to believe they are must read books.
Really want to get into reading - is the rest of the list that bad?
What are some good entry-level Russian adult books? Like the Russian equivalent to Lord of the Flies or The Catcher in the Rye or something, but doesn't necessarily have to be fiction.
>There's a famous russian urban fantasy writer who hasn't been translated into fucking anything I can read.
I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS.
