When this book is mentioned in a Geography class, it will provoke a lecture about how the author's argument is racist
I've fallen in love with a socialist girl at the writing club I attend. What do /lit/
Post a thing that you've written.
It can be a short poem here or you can pastebin your entire novel, whatever.
a short story that I wrote two year ago for a competition that I thought I would at least place in
I was quite discouraged when I didn't win, and have since given a few small attempts to redraft it substanially
although in last year's competition, I placed first :)
In his lectures on Joyce, Nabokov said it was a waste of time to look for allusions and parallels to the Odyssey in Ulysses. Was he right? Isn't that one of the biggest appeals of the book?
so whats the theory behind brutalism? I can't imagine why commies would want their cities filled this disgusting hunks of concrete
it's total recall
it's the crisis of functionalism
it's a reminder of your place in the scheme of things
i think it's appropriate for penitentiaries or judicial systems or communist states where you want to put people in their place
what's the plot of your magnum opus?
the one you haven't written yet because your skills aren't up to par?
I post pictures of overly made up women on English language Japanese manga imageboards alongside poorly lettered insults to elicit disproportionate responses from others.
I've written one today, it wasn't very successful.
one of my ideas centers on a sales agent who learns how to emotionally manipulate his customers before he breaks ties with the shady group of multimedia institutions he does work for
another involves an international syndicate of person-to-person radio operators with convoluted ties to terrestrial and satellite broadcasting networks mapping out an undernet of global communication on the sly. an academic conspiracy complicates the network's regular broadcast and leads to government and cultic interference
What is the most /lit/ film?
>pic obviously not related
I am torn.
While I believe man should live in a utopia where work is minimal and all is organised by the benevolent state.
Yet I recognise the tyranny of authority and that man is exploited not just through wage relations. Similarly I do not agree with this consumption of man by the work ethic.
How do I come to terms with both Communist and Anarchist tendancies?
I made a similar thread once and was linked this
>I love reading, I want to study Literature at Univerity
>Yeah, sure, what kind of book do you like?
>Oh! The perks of being a wallflower, The fault in our stars, Looking for Alaska, Eleanor & Park, Divergent. ...., I can't stop reading!
>Oh, sure.... I gotta go
When did the world turn like this?
Everybody knows and loves/hates Russian lit. We have to remember that there's a shitload of minor literatures all around it, theoretically stemming from the same root - Slavic.
I'm talking about Ukrainians, Belarussians, Poles, Czechs, Slovaks, Slovenians, Croats, Serbs, Bosnians, Bulgarians and Macedonians.
They surely must've written at least something interesting, haven't they?
your favourite Pynchon novel?
Slow Learner faggots are banned from this thread, being this ironical is ridiculous
>be a journalist
>actually be there right in Germany and witness Hitler's rule first-hand
>write what is regarded as the best book on Nazi Germany ever written
>historians get so buttblasted about this that they refuse to recognize your book as a history book just because you don't have the academic credentials
So, do you regard this as a history book or not?
Pictures of authors
I just saw this photo of James Joyce on the NYRB website. I'd never seen it before. I don't know why I feel so uncomfortable about it. Maybe it's because I'm so used to seeing Joyce in the common authorial poses that anything that strays from that is peculiar.
NEW CRITIQUE THREAD, LAST ONE HIT BUMP LIMIT
Prose, poetry, whatever else you shitters are writing. Anything welcome.
>Post one critique one
as if anyone actually does this
Escaping thoughts of you in mind,
beleaguers me to take the skies.
Enveloped by that world of blue,
these thoughts of mine take on a hue,
that no one man can stop or sunder,
these thoughts of you strike me like thunder.
In which with lies we tell ourselves.
This one, I beg, pray not you tell.
What should I do?
