What is your opinion of William Shakespeare?
Is it true? Is it true that there's some repressed alarm buzzing in the back of our heads constantly telling us that something is horribly wrong, and encouraging us to just break out of social constraints and destroy societal structures? This feeling that something is fucked up on an almost existential level, and were all just avoiding mentioning it? I thought it was just me originally, but this book seems to describe this sensation and I'm wondering if this is a common feeling for westerners.
I see the Library of America has good prices for hardbacks and a nice collection too. How's the quality? Is it worth it?
The paper is a bit thin, but the bindings, typesetting, and editing are all solid. The selection of works for each volume is spot-on as well, so you can be assured you're getting a good overview on an author's most important works. I wouldn't necessarily want my whole library to be them, but I'd say they're generally worth it, especially considering you can get anywhere from 3-8 works for the price of one volume.
Hat did /lit/ think of this book?

What is your opinion of deluxe publishers like Folio Society, Easton Press, etc. Just found out about this today. Do people actually buy these? I mean they look really nice but god damn they are expensive.
I own a bunch of Easton Press and love them. Great aesthetic, almost always great font size, useful footnotes a lot of the time, and they hold up. I've got a lot of Franklin Library books too which are nice but not quite the same quality. If you shop around on ebay you can get either for pretty good prices, as opposed to the $65-500 Easton wants on their site.
Can anyone explain the whole Foppl arc in Mondaugen's Story in V? I'm confused especially by that extremely long sentence at the end of the third section: "If a season like the Great Rebellion ever came to him again..."
The flashback chapters in V. are so much harder to understand than the ones set in 1955-6
I'm planning to study the bible, do I go for the King James Version? it seems like the most literary version however i feel like it would be tedious having to look up all of the archaic language? Which edition do you use?

What book can I read as an antidote to this?
I've reached a level of nihilism I didn't think possible. It's actually interfering with my day to day life.
Basically I need to re-delude myself into believing anything I do matters and that I'm lucky to be alive.
Take the redpill and you'll believe in God, capitalism, the family unit with a man at the head of the household, patriarchal societal structure, non-degeneracy, hierarchy, tradition, and whiteness
