The message in a poem is secondary to the aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of the rhyme scheme. If you cannot preserve the rhyme scheme in the target language you should not translate the poem. Because if the prosody and the rhyme scheme are no longer intact, you do not have a poem in your target language.

How do you guys cope with the knowledge that you don't even have an iota of the talent or dedication to make a great piece of art.
I never got this feeling with music or film, but something about literature gives me this great anxiety. Fuck you guys.
>he can't briefly outline 20th century developments in the french social sciences
Is there a legitimate grammar checker out there that actually works well /lit?/
Or is it a complete waste of time to even try.
I'm looking for books about terrible things happening to people. Specifically, after the terrible thing happens, the person or people are now stronger for it and the story ends on a positive note. Both nonfiction and fiction are welcome.
The best thing I could come up with for now was "Between a Rock and a Hard Place," but I need to find a lot of them for reasons. Can you guys please help me out?
Those are pretty good. I'll need at least 30 or so though. I was looking into some Chuck Palahniuk books as well. Those fall under "shit that you would never want to happen to you but are fun to read about anyway." Anything like those?
From a Christian point of view, is Pilatus actually "evil"? He's doing his part to fulfill God's plan, as did Judas and Caiaphas, but at least Dante places Judas at the very lowest level of Hell, and I can't remember if that was because of his suicide or his treachery. I know the lowest circle was for traitors, but still.
Any insights, o sages of /lit/?
Are Shakespeare and Christianity the two clasps of the patrician's mantle?
Essential /Loner/ core?
Working on stoner at the moment
I think almost anything of McCarthy's. His main characters seem incapable of making real, lasting connections
when they're not psychopaths, which I suppose falls under in the same vein
I am interested in reading a good book about the history of coffee. I don't want some goofy ass hipster dribble about how amazing coffee is and how it's turned the world into a more trendy place, I want a proper book about the actual events that caused coffee to be such a massive phenomenon. Thanks in advance.
Does anyone have a comprehensive timeline of all the stephen king and the events within the stories?
