my buddy came over and saw my books. he asked to borrow one. he said pick something good. so I gave him infinite jest lmaooooooooooooooo
What does /literature/ think of this book and Author?
>gf is fantasing about rape and getting off to fuck-machine porn
any philosophical/psychological literature on the depth of female sexuality? freudian or otherwise
right now can't tell whether to trash my gf or go with it
maybe you should get pissed off and say that shit is awful. or maybe she's a victim of sexual assault, and that's a common coping strategy. If you're uncomfortable, just sit down and say, yo this shit makes me feel weird and I don't like it. You shouldn't roll with what you're uncomfortable with.
Is there any literature on abstaining from love?
What does /lit/ think of Walter Benjamin?
How is this not a meme already?
What the fuck?
Because it's by a woman author, and the majority of /lit/iots are too bitter to admit that it's possible for a woman to create something of artistic merit. Why do you think they all shit one Gertrude Stein--one of the greatest writers to ever live?
Go to thread upcatalog for advice and critique, perhaps a few words of encouragment! Here is your advance: nowdays one doesn't need to write clearly, but beauty is paramount, and you nailed the second part. Cheers!
Why do you bitches keep making these threads? Do you need validation from strangers that badly? Take this shit to /soc/.
Also, your handwriting is just a smidge from being good. Form your o's, e's, and a's more neatly. You have a good sense of regularity that isn't found in the noobs (lawl) in the other thread like this.
Reminder that you will not be successful if you spend more than twenty minutes per week here. Put down the technology.
Will he ever top taipei?
Does lit have a chart or list of African American literature?
Thinking of ordering this.
What does /lit/ think of it?
To understand Joyce's later work you need to understand what it's like when you have the same BFF-tier best friend for like 20 straight years, and you hang out constantly and talk on IM programs all day and play Counter-Strike every fucking night, and you develop an intricate interior language that only exists between the two of you. You can text him what looks like complete non sequitur shit and it will make perfect sense and evoke entire conversations and anecdotes and inside jokes with spiralling meta-self-referentiality. He can combine three weird inside jokes...

Ok grammar nazis, is there anytime it's ok to use "should" instead of "would" like:
"I should like to tell you..."
"I should think so."
Or is it just pretentious?
Use it when it makes sense. "I would think so" implies the speaker would think affirmatively if he were smart, where "I should think so" implies the speaker should think affirmatively because he IS smart.
We name authors often unheard of here.
>seemingly-intelligent, competent adults who wind up having the writing skills of a fucking sixth-grader
How does this even happen? I've met so many of these people. It's not even that they misspell simple words like retards, it's that they have a fundamental ignorance of basic grammatical principles (don't know how to use commas, how to properly punctuate around quotation marks, how to string together sentences, etc.) that, even if not formally taught in school, should have been picked up through osmosis over the course of their lives anyway. How the fuck do you live in this country for forty years and still consistently manage to fuck up "they're," "their," and "there?" Do you just shrug your shoulders when you come across a sentence that uses a completely different variation than you would and assume it's wrong? Do you just ignore this when it happens time and time again involving reputable material? Are these people willingly remaining ignorant? My grammar is fucking shit but when I come across something that doesn't match up with what I do, I fucking look it up to see if I've been doing it wrong.
In this context, they're synonymous. Stop being a pedantic faggot because you know exactly what i meant. Not being able to properly communicate your message through writing constitutes a lack of writing skills.
I imagine it's because writing is no longer taught at the same fundamental level that it used to be. My nephew isn't even taught cursive writing anymore, and his spelling words are significantly dumbed down from what mine were like in the 90's
Hello /lit/ I just moved to England more specifically to London, the weather is shit and is really not as I expected.
What book can you recommend me that is set in relatively modern London, is happy and talks about city life.
