so is there an easier way to understand what the fuck is going on in this book? I've just began to read books and I've been reading Alice in Wonderland, 1001 Arabian Nights, and this book and so far my girlfriend has shown me more hidden subtleties in these books then anything else. IE The Pig scene in Alice in Wonderland being a commentary on abortion, and the Caterpillar being about objectivity philosophy so I have to come to /lit/ and ask, I'm 22 and I feel absolutely retarded for not trying to learn critical reading sooner but how would you learn to read critically? Or atleast how can I learn to read The Divine Comedy and understand what the fuck is going on? TL;DR: I need to learn how to read critically/read better.

So I'm reading, The Kreutzer Sonata, in 2013 as a liberal atheist. It's not going well. As I'm reading more Tolstoy I'm starting to loose respect for the guy. I mean, I love his works for an introspection in the exotic life of 19th century Russia and whereabouts but I am pretty much at odds with all his philosophical and ideological views, with the possible exception of pacifism.

/lit/, what is your opinion on literary criticism? Do you lean towards something like New Criticism, New Historicism, Postcolonialism, Psychoanalysis, Gender, Cultural Studies, Aestheticism? Or maybe you don't care that much about it. I'm no expert, so I want your thoughts /lit/.

What do people mean when they say Dostoevsky's prose is bad? Do they mean the original Russian, the translations, or both? I'm finishing up my fourth Dostoevsky novel (pevear and volokhonsky translations) and I really enjoy the prose. It doesn't seem clunky at all. What gives? Is it just Tolstoy fan boys trying to get over their inferiority complex?

HISTORY

So after browsing through the recommended reading, I saw a lack of historical works. I've enjoyed Latro in the Mist and the Terror as far as historical fiction; I've read JM Roberts History of the World, Nero, The Mongols (David Morgan) am currently thumbing through Jack Weatherford's Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World (great prose), and have The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire and maybe Wealth of Nations on my to do list. Any history books you guys would recommend?

Just finished this /lit/. This is like Feels: The Book. >“Why do people have to be this lonely? What's the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?” >“And it came to me then. That we were wonderful traveling companions but in the end no more than lonely lumps of metal in their own separate orbits. From far off they look like beautiful shooting stars, but in reality they're nothing more than prisons, where each of us is locked up alone, going nowhere. When the orbits of these two satellites of ours happened to cross paths, we could be together. Maybe even open our hearts to each other. But that was only for the briefest moment. In the next instant we'd be in absolute solitude. Until we burned up and became nothing.” >“Of course it hurt that we could never love each other in a physical way. We would have been far more happy if we had. But that was like the tides, the change of seasons--something immutable, an immovable destiny we could never alter. No matter how cleverly we might shelter it, our delicate friendship wasn't going to last forever. We were bound to reach a dead end. That was painfully clear.” >“Sometimes I feel so- I don’t know - lonely. The kind of helpless feeling when everything you’re used to has been ripped away. Like there’s no more gravity, and I’m left to drift in outer space with no idea where I’m going" >“Instead of things I'm good at, it might be faster to list the things I can't do. I can't cook or clean the house. My room's a mess, and I'm always losing things. I love music, but I can't sing a note. I'm clumsy and can barely sew a stitch. My sense of direction is the pits, and I can't tell left from right half the time. When I get angry, I tend to break things. I have no money in the bank. I'm bashful for no reason, and I have no friends to speak of.”

Just finished a 80 page, very research intensive, paper on this guy. I know /lit/ is generally confused/upset about him. I'd like to clear up anything I can. Ask me anything.
