Just finished Macbeth
It's amazing. Have any of you read it?
This guy gets a lot of elitist criticism for being too broad and too much of a hippy. And a lot of shit from the 'Muh original sources and texts' bitches.
However in terms of putting large needlessly convulute concepts into simple accessible terms he is excellent. This is actually a rare skill and makes him a great teacher.
I thought the picture you posted was Knausgaard by the look of the thumbnail. They do look kind of similar.
I've never read/listened to Watts or de Botton (apparently they're similar), but I'll keep this recommendation in mind.
>He actually buys pockets instead of hard cover
Explain yourself, faggot.
Let's have a thread about plays, /lit/
What are some of your favorites?
How do your favorite plays stack up against your favorite novels (many seem to have trouble evaluating and comparing worth between the two)?
Do you have a favorite playwright?
Post image(s), other anons recommend book based on it/them
What are you reading right now?
How do you guys write?
I usually try and find a quiet seat and get started. I can do about 3-4 fairly good reworked pages per hour.
I'm a believer that men produce the greatest works of art from their loins. All art is an attempt to solicit attention from women and the world, and success as an artist is equivalent in the mind of the artist with sexual success. It is raw sexual desire that produces art. With this in mind, I work myself into a sexual frenzy through edging, and moments before I ejaculate, unable any longer to contain it, I write a few words. Here is what I have so far for my seminal novel.
fuck fuck slutty women eating my fucking cum
Is it right to rewrite a first draft if it's story isn't finished yet?
> and but so finally, we reached The End Of The Tour (©2015)
jesus christ, dfweally?
What would be the difference, if any, between someone writing a retro-style sci-fi novel in the style of those from the 60's or 70's, versus someone who had read those books from the 60's or 70's and wasn't aware of anything else?
I don't get your question. The main difference would be that one wrote and published a book as a job while the other reads in his spare time.
Not really, yoiu can read a lot and be a really poor writter. Consimunig isn't training for production.
Is there a way to properly, genuinely transfer from /mu/ to /lit/? I won't shit everything, I promise. I left /mu/ to get away from shit. I'm still into music, and I've always been into books, but now that I'm a little older (i.e. not underage) I feel like I'm ready for some of the harder shit
What does /lit/ think of W. B. Yeats?
ITT: Make anon change his mind about something.
Only rule: the "something" that you are trying to make anon change his mind about must never be specified directly.
It's because you're a faggot, it's not as if anything was going to change anyway. Lasting several years should have at least taught you that it's better just to wait. Wait and wait and wait until the clock runs out of batteries, then replace it's batteries and wait some more.
Let's have this kind of thread again. I made a new chart.
Be honest with yourself: you knew I was going to do it.
