well that was shit.
Anyone care to explain why this is considered the greatest novel of all time?
The same way any novel gets popular, it starts as a meme then people jump in who didn't get that the novel being good was a meme and think it's legitimately good and make up justifications for the meme.
I FINISHED IT
Now I feel empty. Help?
Why don't we talk about this book more? I mean is the best anti war novel out there.
I think I might have to drop this book.
I'm on page 238, and it's been painful. The premise is interesting, but all the arcane medieval shit is starting to get tiresome, and way too close to 50% of the text is dialogue among characters who are experts in subjects that I don't know anything about.
Does it get better?

the slings and arrows of misfortune
to sleep, perchance to dream;
to sleep, to sleep; ay, that is the rub
what may come when we shuffle off this mortal coil
Have any of the major philosophers offered an opinion on Martin Luther and secondly the results/effects of his 'reform'?

I don't get it.
The only reason why it's considered literature is due to its popularity among the youth (back in the day) and the censorship controversies it inspired.
Other than that, the symbolism is blatantly obvious (books says it right in your face) and nor is it impressive by any literary standards.
>nor is it impressive by any literary standards.
you are right objectively. but it does touch peoples' hearts in this day, so it does appeal to the audience and is well-done in that respect.
>this poetry sucks
this is shit
Should I devote this year to learning philosophy and reading the greats or to trying to have as many and as varied and fulfilling sexual experiences/adventures as possible?
I only have the time properly for the one and the other'd be kind of a tack on
