Help me /lit/, I'm driving myself crazy trying to come up with a good honors thesis topic in english/philosophy. Are any of you graduates or college seniors? How'd you come up with a topic to write a thesis about?
Can somebody here please explain the appeal of Kafka's 'the trial' to me? I've read it twice in the last two days, once on Monday and again yesterday. I enjoy Kafka's prose, and I can accept the basic premise of it's satire, but anything past that I cannot comprehend.
Tl;dr why is 'the trial' not the modern art of literature
What are the most demanding bits of writing you have and took the extra mile to understand?
For me it was the poetry of Anna Ahmatova. She alludes to Klyuyev, Gumiliov, Nerval, Vergilius, her husband Osip Mandelshtam, Cosmas of Maiuma, the bible and anecdotes mentioned by Pliny the Elder and altogether it would only submit to you if you knew a lot about what was going in Russia of the Stalin era; if you were acquainted to the "Journey into the Whirlwind" or "Hope against Hope".
The Red Book
Various occult texts. Crowley, Spare, John Dee, Hermes Trismegistus, others
Essays by visual artists are often frustratingly obtuse, I've read a torturous few, but none jump to mind

What's your favorite dead /lit/ meme?
Post your Zizeks. I know you have them. And I want them all.
Does /lit/ read any literature journals? I've been wanting to start reading one or two ever since learning that authors often start out by publishing their short stories in journals. Ideally, I'm looking for a journal that's rather politically unbiased -- in that it represents both sides of current issues and the like.
Pic related, it's one of the first results when I google searched "literature magazine". What do you all think of it?
just finished foundation and empire...so was the mule the kind of characters that the writers put in to the make their audience relate to? his speech at the end explaining his motivations sounded like something out of an anime
It's no surprise you got that feeling. Kefka was directly inspired by the Mule.
