Well can you, /lit/?
The more 'impressionistic' the poem the more likely it was written by a machine. Or an inorganic machine, rather. The poems written by humans all had a conceptual thread that ran the entire length and looped back around to tie it all together, while the two written by computers were disjointed and failed to hold together. The sudden breaking off of a thought over an enjambed line is the biggest give away.
I missed on two because I was expecting tricksiness. It's actually much easier if you're just searching for honesty.
It has began!
Also I would like to worship the poetry of our new overloads, let Shakesbot and RoboHomer take it, lord knows we fucked it up.
the fuck you say about iceberg theory, you little bitch?
The fact that critical interpretations of your stories often not only differ wildly but are outright contradictory should tell you that the theory, or at least your application, is complete bullshit.
Now put the gun down, Ernie, we both know the only person you'll ever use it on is yourself.
A guy writing for a newspaper of my country is saying that political wounds bleeding at the moment in Europe is strongly tied to the refutation and disgust the urban people have developed for the countriside people. You may call it a large scale elitism.
So as only city people ever seem to produce importabt works, even if they only make half of the country populations, can there be no /lit/ from that demogeaphic?
That's a rather cavalier hypothesis your newspaper guy is holding there.
Anyway, there is a country literature, as much as there is a proletarian one. It just hasn't the same channels of publicity than more legitimated (I didn't say "legitimate") ones. Sadly, I couldn't help and quote any authors, probably for this very reason...
Literature has definitely shifted dramatically towards the metropolitan in the past two centuries or so, I can think of a few well-recieved authors who live in and/or write about "the countryside" of the past few decades

The best historical fiction, /lit/?
How do I into Shakespeare? Which of his works should I start with, how should I approach them, and how should I progress?
You're well on your way to enlightenment just by asking
Reading order doesn't really matter. Just choose one of his most famous plays and read it. Get a copy with annotations if you aren't used to the language. Read some essays about the play after if you are interested.
divergent and insurgent are shit i read them out of pure boredom (I was on a road trip and had finished all of my books and needed something to read so I borrowed divergent.) its shit i will list the reasons below.
When does it start getting good?
>The original Stirnerfag
>will never devise original philosophy
>pseud-level understanding of anyone past nietzsche
>still has to consult a dictionary
>can only write in bland pose suited for technical specs or didactic text
What books about sophism and , as a whole, convincing-but-flawed-logic , does /lit/ recommend ?
Pic obviously related.
Red pill me on Max Stirner /lit/.
What is a spook?
What is the core of his philosophy?
What was it Marx hated so much about him?
Where do I start with reading his work?
>What is a spook?
>What is the core of his philosophy?
>Where do I start with reading his work?
read the ego and his own.
>What was it Marx hated so much about him?
read die deutsche ideologie.
Not OP but do you think one can jump straight into the ego and his own and understand it?
I haven't read anything philosophy related but I happen to have this book and I'd like to give it a try.
Pic related. Artist is Bright Eyes and they help get me going. Lookin for new music, bonus points for feelsy music
I usually get too distracted by music to write, but a few decent tracks are
I can't write to anything with vocals, and I tend to prefer silence.
Where music is desired or necessary (e.g. people around are distracting) generally I listen to classical (Verdi, Chopin, Bach are pretty comfy and undistracting) or modern music that is especially chill (with no lyrics).
Three artists I listen to a lot (especially when I'm writing in noisy spaces):
Considering the time in which he lived, would his views be considered the "norm" at that time, or was he even worse than that?
Also, who were some notable influences for his views?
