Apart from Lolita he isn't that good t-b-h.
Ada is one of the great literary works of the 20th century and Pale Fire is superb. His lesser other works alone would still put him on the same level as any other respected writer of his era.
i know you're just bantering tho
You are walking into the a very professional job interview in which you will be judged solely on the last 4 books you have read. How fucked are you lit?

if you want to learn about your consciousness, then stop being a rationalist, even better, stop being an hedonist and learn samatha mediation
Is he legit or a hack?
i watched a talk of his once and he didnt seem next level or special in any way

Eternity belongs to writers.
What have you written lately?
I used to write every day but I fell out of the habit. Even though what I was writing wasn't very good, it was a great routine, and it was very introspective -- I learned a lot about myself. A big part of me wants to go back to it, but I can only think, what's the point?
Hey /lit/ i have to write a story
Can anyone help me whit the subject
I can not think of anything
protagonist discovers a book in a library, falls in love with it, but can't find any information on the author.
He is about to give up when he sees an old card in the front of the book with the name of the last person to check it out. It was thirty years ago.
If you're lazy, you can make this person the character's estranged father.
What happens next is up to you.
protag moves to south america in an attempt to escape what he sees as the perils of modern capitalism, moves deep into the jungle or somehting idk you decide, gets bit by a snake and slowly dies over a few days, realising he cannot get help he simply has to accept his death
Every book I pick up to read seems vapid and cliche, the characters unrelatable and unfleshed, the plot uninteresting and predictable
I... I can't enjoy reading anymore /lit/...
Am I becoming a literary critic?
