What do you think of my thesis statement?
In Junot Diaz’s novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao Oscar’s ability to appreciate love is always growing, which makes him dismiss his past perception of love as a misinterpretation of his feelings.
My worry is that it's too simplistic, but then again I don't want to overcrowd my thesis with ideas.
I'm a senior in high school btw
I wrote mine on Brief Wondrous Life, too. BHSEC?
I don't know how much that thesis gives you to work with, desu. If it were me (again) I'd pick something closer to a comprehensive lense to view the book through than a simply true statement about the narrative.
I'd give examples but desu I skimmed the book and bullshit-ed my paper so I don't remember anything.
I revamped it
In Junot Diaz’s novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao Oscar only realizes the true nature of love after he becomes disillusioned and forms a sense of self-awareness because love is about oneself as much as it is about the other person.
the lyrics, I mean
I am a open pop music fanatic, I think it represents the hopes and dreams of the common people yo
It's not the hopes and dreams of the common people. It is the hopes and dreams that appeal to the widest and most marketable base. It's artificial and inauthentic garbage.
If you are approaching it from that perspective, you are just out of touch.
so there have been a few /lit/ literary journals in the past, but none in the last few years
recently I've seen ideology and pinecone, which is exciting, but when I look them up in the archives/warosu, they've been deleted
what fucking gives mods?
the hypersphere thread has been bumped for like two weeks and been made several times in the past months
heaven forbid a literary forum should actually try to make some lit or a lit group
How do you deal with cold logic /lit/? I love engineering because of the creativity and personal touch involved, but for me math and science seems too impersonal. It seems that it heavily relies on some brain functions that can be named IQ. That is no artistry involved and the leap of genius is something impersonal that could be done by someone else in another time. If it wasn't for literature i would be quite alienated and paranoid.
tss why's it so cold did it forget its jacket or somethin i dunno
I study electrical engineering and passed through similar things, anon.
Until I realized what makes math and physics "unartistry" is the student eyes.
I personally find beauty in eletromagnetism, specially when the fields variate with time. But this only because I tried to focus not in "how to solve problems and get a good grade" but in why the equations are that (deductions, proves and such).
If you study math, physics or chemistry only to understand the method of solving problems,...

Let's discuss this, one of the greatest things ever written
Halfway through the second essay. I enjoy the part about mans desire for cruelty. This is my secret love and glittering. It resonated with me b/c I only get off to rape videos on heavy R or intense Painal videos

What are some books that are both funny and heartbreaking?
What's a good place to start with Marx? Aside from the obvious answer of 'The Communist Manifesto', I'm looking for a good collection of Marx's work that gives a good summary of his views without making me read several thousand pages. I've heard the Marx-Engels Reader is a good starting place, but I would have no idea.
Marx-Engels Reader is fine but I like to recommend "The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte" as the best introduction to Marx. A little more complicated but really much, much more rewarding than the manifesto - I started with the Manifesto and it put me off from Marx but I now consider him one of the greatest and most profound political and economic writers in history.
What is worth reading by Victor Hugo ?
How can you retain information if you don't subvocalize? I can get the general gist but details become harder to pick up.
10 pager on Brave New world due tmo
any advice on how to start it?
• Brave New World argues that the quest for “happiness as the Sovereign Good” is the path toward dystopia. The most unhappy characters in the book are also the most human. Discuss. In our high-tech cyber-age does Huxley’s cautionary tale seem more or less relevant and compelling?
SO my classmate wants to start this group where people submit recordings of themselves reading stuff for a facebook page. So far the only two people who have submitted are me and her. How can I get people at my uni interested?
Is studying the Bible at a university and maybe even learning Hebrew or Greek worth it?
What's your opinion about Soren Kierkegaard?
