How can God be three distinct persons and one? How can Jesus be fully human and fully God? Can someone explain Mary's role in Catholicism, isn't she barely mentioned in the bible?

Well /lit/, I think I have to leave this board altogether. I don't know what happend. I am not saying that there ever was a golden age when it comes to this board and I certainly don't miss any of the tripfags that were posting on here, but recently I have grown to very much dislike the board. The first thing was the whole pleb and patrician thing that started a while ago and apparently came from /mu/ from what I heard. Overall I always have the feeling that /lit/ just discusses entry level or well known writers all day every day. Just before there was a thead about how to start with Dostoevsky and there were like 20 replies in 5 minutes. Threads about not so well known writers or writers that are not 'highschool level', that actually could start a nice discussion (I started a few such threads in the past) are mainly ignored by most people, since most of the people on here haven't heard about them. On the other hand there are tons of shit threads and meta threads. Seriously, shit like 'that leftish british chick might come to /lit/!' 200+ replies. 'How often does /lit/ get laid?' 200+ replies. And don't forget the existential angst threads that pop up here daily and end up with tons of replies. Seriously, I sometimes get the feeling that no one on here actually reads... I mean /lit/ was amazing when I first came here, I got damn nice recommandations since I didn't know shit about literature, but once one has read most of the well known and entry level stuff, it seems there isn't much reason to visit this board anymore. I have downloaded most of the recommendation charts and it seems, that is it.

/lit/, This is my first time on this board. I write stories on my own, just seeing what my imagination would come up with. I type them up in Word. They're never more than 20 pages long. Anyone else do this?

What is /lit/'s view on "mindless entertainment" Often times, people who watch Real Housewives, see Bay movies, and read 50 Shades will just defend their actions by saying that it's just escapism or mindless entertainment. I personally find this absurd. Why would you ever waste precious time of your horribly short life on something you'll admit is stupid (or that's what you tell people). We live in an age where so many people have access to almost anything in regards to personal pleasure. Whereas in the past, enjoyments such as classical music, the theater, and even literacy had been reserved mainly for the upper class aristocracy. I'm simply just wondering what goes through your head when somebody says "mindless entertainment". Or, more importantly, do you partake in anything "mindless" just as a sort of escape?

Hey, /lit/, I'm leaving for the United States Navy in a month or so. I am looking forward to the Navy, but I am worried about college afterwards. I will be in a submarine so I will not have the same education opportunities as the rest of the Navy. Knowing that could you recommend me some books to improve or maintain my critical thinking and writing abilities. Any tips from people who have been in similar situations would be welcome as well.

There's this book, I forget the name, it had anthropomorphic rabbits and wolves fighting it out with spears and it had a funny name, and the main character liked to read books instead of fight. The food descriptions, in particular his tea, were really detailed. Oh, and the rabbit people could ski as well. Anybody know the name?

Does anyone know a good word for something that helps us cope with a situation or life in general? The closest I could come up with is 'palliate' but that suggests something that alleviates the pain where as I'm looking for a word to describe something more like a shitty job but the benefits or being able to see your kids do well helps you deal with the job.

Hey /lit/, why do we read classic literature? I'm seriously though. Why, as a modern society, do we still go out of the way to preserve classic literature. What does it teach us? How does it benefit us? What can we learn from a book such as Dumas's Count of Monte Cristo?

Is there a better place than /lit/ for poetry criticism? Does it annoy anyone? Should I just consult someone irl? Anyways, here's my latest poem: An Asian man Made out if cathode rays Quietly plays Chopin. As an almost too bright light Shines on my lumpy recliner With cigar burns on the armrests. I hold my book with both hands, And a bag of popcorn under my forearm Coats my fingers in grease and salt. Suddenly, He bursts through the door, A towel around his waist. He doesn't say a word as he drips water Across the already mildew-filled carpet. "Change the fuckin channel please"

First time writer here. I'm 30 pages into a screenplay I'm writing, but right now I want to do a short story that I've had on my mind for a few days. How do you go about doing dialogue in a short story? There is a fair bit in the story I want to write. Is it typically frowned upon or anything?

What can you guys tell me about this book? I've read The Unbearable Lightness of Being, and honestly i'm really dreading the thought of even touching this novel. However, I have a paper due soon and was wondering if anyone would be so helpful as to outline some of the basic themes and undertones present in either: a) the first 100 pages or b) the whole book.

Hello /lit/ I have been reading some Pynchon lately and I think a few of you have been reading his stuff too. So far I have read V and Crying of Lot 49 and I enjoyed them very much, but I would like to ask a few questions and might even start a discussion about them. First thing to Crying of Lot 49: At the end of the novel. I am not very aquainted with how public auctions are working and I am not American, but the whole scene at the end, with the figures in black and the auctioneer raising his arms as he was discribed as a priest and the locking of the doors seemed to me more as a meeting of people who belong to Trystero. What do you think about that? Or is it a simple auction of the stamp collection? Now one thing about V: There was an early chapter, whose title was ' In which Stencil, a quick-change artist, does eight impersonations'. I read some interpretations of the book and wikipedia for example mentioned that the chapter wasn't insofar about Stencil being the persons in each part of the chapter as merly exploring them through his fathers diary or something. I don't know, when I read it and cause of the title, I thought that it was some kind of flashback about Stencil's past and showing how he was impersonating different people. I took the fact that he always refered to himself in the third person, to keep distance from 'himself' as another sign, that he was mainly changing his personality as personal gain. Am I a total retard and totally wrong about this?

Pic unrelated. So I took a beginning creative writing class, because I thought I would learn about how to write fiction, but it turns out half the curriculum is about poetry. I fucking hate poetry. Is poetry necessary to become a better writer, or should I ditch this class?

"Rachel laughed so hard she broke explosive wind, and then both of them laughed so long and so loudly that they woke up Gage in the next room." My usual taste in literature would best be described as "up-tight", "boring", or "canonical", so I'm trying something new and reading Stephen King upon the advice of a friend. Is this the sort of thing I can come to expect? I generally read things with many fewer fart jokes.

So I'm an illustrator, with a passion for macabre literature and weird fiction. Recently I've started attempting to create a Lovecraftian styled, graphic novel. (Executed in a traditional art form) So far I've finished the second drafts first 4 pages out of a total of 9 pages... (including cover (pic related)) I was wondering if you think it is successful at creating a Lovecraftian feel, or how it could be reinforced. I would greatly appreciate feedback! >Sorry, my grammar and sentence structure hiccups a lot and I will need to revise it later, so sorry if it makes you angry in any form.

Hey Dilettantes, My name is William, and I hate every single one of you. All of you are overweight, prole, kindle readers who spend every second of their day looking at renditions of shakespeare. You are everything bad in this realm. Honestly, have any of you ever even read War and Peace? I mean, I guess it's fun making fun of people because they haven't heard of the Western Canon, but you all take it to a whole new level. This is even worse than reading Infinite Jest on vocaroo. Don't be a transient. Just fling at me your obscenities. I'm pretty much perfect. I was head of the literary studies club, and school head boy. Whats books do you read, other than "only works from obscure new age writers"? I also get straight A's and have a beautiful oak bookcase (I just polished it, excretion was SO currency). You are all dilettants who should just kill yourselves. Thanks for listening. Pic Related: It's me and my book

¿Qué piensan de mi cuento corto? Todavía no sé cómo titularlo... cualquier recomendación será bienvenida. 1/3 Los últimos días de abril suscitaban en Mercedes un cambio formidable. En ese tiempo, cuando ya sabía interpretar el presagio de sus largos silencios, me asaltaba la certidumbre de que debíamos abandonar los juegos infantiles para dejar que ella se entregara por completo a los pormenores de su trance. Después de los almuerzos magros y desde el vaho insoportable del comedor, yo la veía colocarse de pie bajo el umbral de la puerta, a un paso del sol y el aire abrasador, atenta al sonido del viento y a las mareas prodigiosas del maíz, escrutando con paciencia imposible la forma de una nube o el vuelo de cierto pájaro. Así durante muchos días y hasta la entrada de la noche caliente.
