Why did Iago do it?
Othello promoted someone ahead of him, and he also suspected him of having slept with his wife.
The idea that Iago's motives are mysterious, that he seemingly does it all "for no reason" is a weird myth. Iago straight up says why he hates Othello.
I've posted this before and somebody replied that, well, how can we *believe* Iago, you know, because he's so deceptive? This is a needless complication that muddles things without explaining anything.
What other stories have a comparable character to Tom Bombadil?
hey /lit/ no memeing here, I'm genuinely curious as to what is your favorite Thomas Pynchon book? I myself find V and Inherent Vice the most enjoyable/rewarding
Only ever read Lot49 and V.
That being said V. is superior.
It's been awhile, /lit/. I haven't been here in a good while. Is there a recommended set of pic related? I want the Penguin Classics set in paperback, but can only find 1-3. Help me out.

two questions of DUNE
how does Leto breed against prescience? this makes no sense?
and, why can't' Paul tell the fremen to stop jihad? they worship him.
The Jihad was ment to consume the universe, like Paul was never a God, but he was far more than a man. He was something no one ever planned, a monster. Fyde (Fade?) Also had the same genetic potential to become what Paul became but his life of privilege stunted his development
Writers of /lit/, have you grasped the power of iambs yet?
Have you learned to hear the bob and weave of English? Melville got it right. So did Faulkner. Have you?
Is she worth reading for the first time past the age of 20?
how does it feeling knowing even he is much more successful, well-known, loved, and respected than you?
He's basically fake-woke annoying ass Voxsplainer for little kids and probably got people to raise money for my disease even though he's a shitty writer. The point is that I have bigger problems to worry about that this insufferable memer.
When will you stop it with this LE SINGULARITY OMG XDDDDD meme? Robots are good at this because they absorbed a shitload of human content and then imitated it like the dumb fucks they are.
AI is nowhere as advanced as you redditfucks seem to think it is.
i like joanna newsom's lyrics. what are some poets i might enjoy reading?
What do you listen to while reading?
How can i read faster?
So basically you're telling me that Sol was sitting there the entire time, cradling his infant daughter in his arms, while listening to a 2 meter tall muslim man talk about how he thrust his giant turkroach cock in and out of said daughter while sucking on her erect nipples?
What method does /lit/ prefer to read?
i prefer physical books, but started reading on my phone lately. its nice having it at my fingertips all the time.
havent tried kindle/ereaders
anyone able to give good pros to using one? kinda want one but need to justify it
Kindle. The on-hand dictionary and x-ray features have spoiled me. We aren't more books available on it? I'm reading The Tin Drum now, and the other two Danzig trilogy books aren't available in English on it, only German. Same goes for most non-fiction books I want to read.
This guy's a fucking cultist.
