hey /lit/, any books similar to pic related? I really liked the religious theme surrounding the story. I'm thinking of "The Exorcist",
PS. No entry level reads, please. I'm done with Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and the likes.
Malleus Maleficarum by Heinrich Kramer which is about how to hunt witches. The witches in the movie are basically what this guy thinks witches are in real life.
The Crucible by Arthur Miller which is about hysteria surrounding witch sightings, which is touched on briefly in the movie (I suppose you could interpret it in a specific way to make it spooky)
Have you read Dream In The Witches' House by Lovecraft? Thats pretty similar shit
Has anyone here ever had anything rejected by a publisher? If so, what did they say?
Name a time another time a corny genre fiction writer wrote down his descent into mental illness and sold it for profit as eloquently as he could.
I don't think you can
>Buy an almost complete set of classics (34 books, something like 60 authors ranging from Homer to Dostoevsky) for $100
>Faggot professors add a shitty twenty page commentary that could be found through a simple wikipedia or sparknotes
>Sells one of the classic's that I paid chump change for, for $60
>bumping an hour and a half old thread just to say this
Symmetry is born from neutrality. At all medians, branches and roots extend. Insides and outsides. Tangible and intangible. Under. Over. Up. Down. This is basic, yes? This writing is typical, no? Questions within vagueness surrounded by analytics and rhetorics. But bury your head underground, and do you see any less? Or do your eyes simply hear less noise? Does your mind cease to imagine what happens to your body? In this case, what has become the roots and what are the branches? That cold blooded brain takes over and are you you anymore? Does the anticipation and uncertainty...

I don't like either of the current poetry recommendation charts and want to make a new one based on eras/styles/movements. Does anyone want to help?
>does anyone want to help?
not really but if you have questions i can answer
Taking a shot in the dark here, but has anyone read anything by Rainbow Rowell and what did you think?
The entire English department at my university is obsessed with Rainbow Rowell, and after about a year of people urging me to read this, I finally did, and I thought it was shit. It's like the Mumford and Sons of books or something.
I have no idea how I uploaded a pic of John Cena instead of the book I referenced, but this is the book I'm talking about.
So was Meursault always an absurdist?
Or did he become absurdist when he knew he was going to get executed?
Was Mr. Dubois wrong about literally anything?
Starship Troopers general I suppose
What do you guys think of Alan Moore? I really enjoyed his Crossed series.
I actually like him more nowadays, since he started writing prose and became a half-mad hermit. Voice of the Fire/Providence > Watchmen/V for Vendetta. And hopefully Jerusalem will be the best yet, though I dunno what he's on about with that cover.
ohhhh haha now I get why thomas pynchon is so wacky
What does /lit/ think about Philip Larkin?
Studied The Whitsun Weddings in high school. Didn't like all of it but some of them were really good and I still think about them sometimes.
>Why did he think adding meant increase? To me it was dilution
couldn't get past the first page. what a giant pile of insufferable bullshit. my God is it ever boring. what is it even about? why the fuck does he have all these pictures and graphs. utter trash.
Is this guy worth reading?
I honestly got interested on him while watching Aku no Hana since poetry never was my cup of tea.
I'm going to my nearest bookstore in a couple of hours and books in my country are expensive as fuck so I'd be very thankful if some good-hearted /lit/izen could enlight me about this.
I'm not usually one of the ">reading translations" people but I could never find English translations of Baudelaire that were half-decent. If you have any French knowledge whatsoever, I'd recommend reading the English translations of his poems side-by-side with the original French.
Should I read The Odyssey before Ulysses?
Does it make any difference reading Joyce's other work before Ulysses?
