What's the contemporary appeal of feminism and where does the idea of the patriarchy came from? Why have feminism replaced Marxism as the main left-wing ideology? I always felt relationship between the sexes was a marginal and specific issue overall, so I don't understand why it gained such wide resonance in comparison to issues such as wars and economy.

Short Stories

How about we interact with this chart that was posted recently and with short stories in general. How many of these have you read? What did you think of them? Would you pick different stories for some authors? Who goes in slot 00 as a serious choice? Here are some thoughts of mine for starters: * Chekhov - a master of course; no way to pick just one * Aldiss - underwhelming story (inb4 >genre) * Wallace - not credited enough for what he did with the form; I'd've gone with 'G.O.N.' or maybe 'Mr. Squishy' * Dostoyevsky - some underappreciated stories; I'd pick 'The Dream of a Ridiculous Man' * Marquez - great story * Saunders - 'Spider Head' is amazing * Melville - 'Bartleby' is fascinating especially given how old it is * Asimov - again don't even >genre * Joyce - 'Araby' might be my choice over 'The Dead' too (which may be too obvious) * Cheever - maybe 'The Swimmer' is too obvious too * Borges - another monument; impossible to choose just one * Vonnegut - 'Bergeron' is great and ambiguous as to how much to take it at face value * Card - a minor adjustment to the chart would make him have to sit next to Wilde * LeGuin - 'Omelas' is excellent If you want to read what you roll that's good too; If you read it and share your thoughts, that's great; if you post a link to what you roll, that's great too.

How can i effectively implement themes and ideas into my story

Question on influence anxiety. I am currently working on a short fiction piece that is easily my most ambitious, and probably best shot at fiction writing yet. I think it has a good sense of unity and reads as something that's more than the sum of its parts. But at the same time, I look at it and it seems to me glaringly obvious where my influences are. Almost like a Frankenstein's monster of taking from other authors and stories. I do not feel I've especially 'ripped anyone off', at the core of the story is something I've come up with. But I can't help worrying it will just be seen a bunch of fragments of other works cobbled together. I guess I'm wondering how common it is a writer sees their work as derivative like this. Surely its more obvious to me having a sort of knowledge where things come from. So do people always see works like this? Or if I can easily take it apart and pinpoint where everything has sort of stemmed from does it mean my work is not original enough?

Suggested translations

>translations OK, so we get a lot of people coming here asking for translations. And we get a lot of people asking about the same works. In an effort to cut down on that repetition, I'm making this. What are some other commonly-asked about translations that I can put in this graphic?

Why are the classical "dystopian future" scenarios always displayed as bad? I would love to waste away my life with drugs and no intellectual challenges in a world without real conclicts or strong opinions. I'm not even trying to sound edgy here, but that sounds like a easy life. Fahrenheit for example. Sure, no books, even for entertainment, would suck. But other parts of the scenario wouldn't be as bad as portrayed.

Is Marxism actually significantly different from "utopian socialism" or is that a lot of hype? The way Engels used to go on about Marxism you'd think it was this totally new, game-changing development that's radically different from anything that came before it. The thing is, when I look at the material written by the utopian socialists, I'm not really convinced that the Marxists are basically different from them in any sense other than having more of a focus on quasi-economic theories. I'm not sure someone who read a ton of Proudhon, Saint Simon or Blanqui would end up favoring a radically different vision of society from that which Marx and Engels promoted. In fact I think a lot of Western socialists are closer to the utopians than to Marxist-Leninist interpretations of Marxism.

"Mario loves Hal so much it makes his heart beat hard". How does Wallace make this line read so genuinely? I swear if it appeared in any other book or movie or any sort of entertainment I'd either cringe or laugh.
