Well, do you?
Bravo Shakespeare, it only took 400 years for your joke to pay off.

What is the most though provoking or mind fucking book you have ever read /it/ that just blew your mind away?
I have a final in my English class and I have no idea what to write about. The final is to write a poem.
What is the oldest story involving a gay romance ever told?
Help me /lit/ I've got a 200 word essay on to kill a mockingbird due tomorrow and I don't think I'll finish it on time.
What are the best books to help me appreciate art? I've always felt that I didn't fully understand art and that there were some layers beneath it that I'm missing. Do I have to learn about the history of art, and if so, do you guys have any recommendations?
I liked/appreciated art before reading this, but the biography of Cezanne by Alex Danchev made me better understand art and what it means to be an artist.
It's really dense though and if you don't have some understanding of late 19th century French art, there will be a lot of names you'll have to look up because Danchev takes it for granted that the reader knows who he's talking about.
i have $25 to this place, what should i get?
whatever you fucking want. what kind of question is this. I would recommend avoiding the cheap B&N paperback versions of the classics. Those fuckers immediately fall apart when u leaf through the pages
i want too many things tho. i was hoping you guys would tell me stuff and eventually someone would suggest something that sounded right and it would be my sign from the universe.
do they sell used books?

How dank are J.D Salinger's short stories?
is anyone willing to read my final research paper for a women's history class? you don't need to agree with it obviously just wanna get second opinions on formatting and all that stuff. if there's a better place to post this, let me know!
i want to take it and post it online so you get fucked over for plagiarism but im not that mean.
just do footnotes and look at examples from previous years, guaranteed your school has some.
we were required to do footnotes, my instructor gave us many resources on how to format them and what should be annotated etc. i just don't know if it transitions well enough, if the audience would feel that my thesis statement has been answered, etc.
What is some good gay literature?
I'm gay and an English lit major, only novel in English I've ever enjoyed with prominent gay themes was Pale Fire. Giovanni's room was disappointing, but I liked Baldwin's 'Notes of a Native Son', which is nonfiction.
Which do you prefer: books that answer questions, or books that ask questions?
I like books that answer questions. It's not that I soak up the answers and start believing them and throwing them around. But asking questions only stimulates so much thought. Reading people's attempts at answers makes me think much more.
anyone else think the "High Water Mark" speech in Fear and Loathing is bullshit?
