This is the only book I have read where I felt consistently intellectually nourished from start to finish. Do you know of any appreciable "general knowledge" books?

What's your opinion of classical Greek literature, /lit/? I'm not talking about the straight up myths, I mean the hard stuff, the stuff most people pass over when reading Edith Hamilton. I've been talking classes on the subject recently and can't really gain an appreciation for it, particularly Aeschylus. Any tips or opinions on the matter? I feel like I'm missing something important. I just can't figure out why anybody gave a shit about anyone in this fucked up family (of Agamemnon). There's gotta be something to it, but I can't find it.

The hubris of analytic philosophers. Why do they think their understanding of concepts is the only valid one? Why must an anthropologist or a literary critic clarify what they mean for them when it is taken as rote knowledge within their own discipline. Why are analytic philosophers above using a dictionary? They make interdisciplinary research a task instead of a valued methodology.

Yukio Mishima on the graphic novel: >"Manga is essential to my physiological health," he wrote in one of a handful of essays praising the genre in 1969. He was a devoted reader of this "terribly vulgar, terribly intelligent [...] language art" since childhood. As an adult, Mishima confided, he vied with his children to get first dibs on their weekly delivery of new issues of their favorite manga. > >"Compared with American comics, Japanese manga are a touch grimmer and darker both in eroticism and cruelty," wrote Mishima. "To make up for it, though, they are avant-garde in nonsense. You will see how I, in search of comics that never exist in America, have entered into this way [of the warrior] through graphic samurai tales." > He did, however, note that he did not care for graphic novels that had a "political" or "educational" bent to them. Instead, he preferred tales with "ghouls and ghosts," "savage samurai," and "wild slapstick." What /lit/ think?

I see a coon across the way her back is arched against the rain and in her eyes indifferent pain she turns and quickly slinks away My roof is where she's made a home it's flat and surely houses four two factions sleep above a store that offers deals on shaving foam I used to see her every night and toss her chips and pizza crust betray my word and roommate's trust to be the one that treats her right but December snow fell, mound on mound, and not one single print I found.

What does /lit/ think of Rise and Fall of the Third Reich? I'm reading a smaller hardcover version of the same book so it has like 1500 pages but I've read over 200 so far and I really enjoy it. I don't think I'll be putting this down anytime soon. Did you like it, would you recommend it, do you think this is the best history out there for Nazi Germany etc.?

/lit/, what do you think about the Ender's Game series? I just read Ender's Game for the 2nd time and I'm reluctant to go on. I remember really enjoying Speaker for the Dead but just thinking Xenocide is okay and gave up part of the way through Children of the Mind. Would it be worth trying again in order of publication, or in chronological order?

I'm writing this poem but I'm not sure what sounds right? "As I bashed your brains into the floor, There unlocked a hidden door. A door into my racing mind, One I hadn't known before. It brought me to the bright conclusion, that this must be an illusion So I lit your corpse on fire. With intention, get much higher." Should it be "With intention, TO get much higher" or maybe "As intention, to get higher" What would be the most grammatically correct?

Hey guys, I've got quite a lot of books that I'd like to read and are in my backlog but I rarely have the time to get to them because of the amount of readings I have to do for class plus fatigue. Do you guys mix it up, like study for a while, then read for leisure time? Seems like the only time I have is when the semester is over. Suggestions?

Identification request

Gentlemen! I come to you for help. I need to identify a book (or was it a short story?) that I read a long time ago. I can't remember the title or author, but I do remember the plot. A woman discovers that she can read minds. She proceeds to do so for some time. Tobacco dulls her powers. One day, she reads the mind of someone who is dying (I'm fuzzy, but I think it was her brother who was also a mind reader?). She realizes that when people die, their brains continue to function, but the degradation caused by death causes nightmares. They are essentially trapped in their own internal hell, for what seems like an eternity (from their perspective). She gets seriously depressed thinking about this, and considers suicide. Finally, she tries to commit suicide by placing dynamite in her mouth, so that she will never have to experience this. I remember this very clearly because my 16 year old self fapped to this idea furiously. Someone (Her lover? Brother?) goes to the authorities about her suicidal intentions. She gets thrown into an insane asylum. A mind reader in an insane asylum, knowing full well what's waiting for her when she finally snuffs it. The story ends. Can anyone identify the story?

What u thinks? Close your eyes and watch me dance. I've the sway of the tempest I've her lovely trance. The sailors once feared me Till I lead them ashore. They say I dance nicely I needn't hear anymore. Plug your ears and hear me sing. I've the throat of a crow It's a beautiful ring. To the ears of a witch. She says I sound sublime. But you needn't tell me, I haven't the time. Denial has tricked me. Will you share with me my pain? To the widows of war I handle pain better than they. Shall I learn no. I'm blind to it, I know.

Hello /lit/, is the following plot used as a town's single whore or not? An adolescent, employed in the family business (insignificant rank, no responsibility). Sheltered from the world and content in his uneventful, asocial life, he avoids all unnecessary social contact, bemoaning his sorry state, fretting over the horrible possibilities of life. He is torn from the artificial womb of his family's village inn by his father. He appoints him the responsibility of manager in another of their inns in a large city. He is certain the gods use him as comic relief in their sick humour, kicking him, sending disaster his way to see his pathetic responses. Apart from getting laid, he has an awful time stepping out of his bubble. People manipulate him, steal from him and feign friendship for their own gain. He goes through several stages of reassessing his life, decisions and beliefs as he is slapped around by life. Short: Awkward adolescent gets kicked around like a bitch and lrns2lyfe through trial and error. Does things he heard in tales as a kid. Would cutting out the lrn2lyfe part make it more interesting? The tragedy is well-mixed with comedy. Would less inner growth be better? All's well, all's wrong ending, I'm not leaning either way.

Fuck you, Antinoos. I am so glad you finally died, you bastard. It's going to be tough to finish the last three chapters now that you're dead, because really that's all I cared about. Please tell me that anyone else was this into this book. Nobody understands my nerdgasm like I hope you do, /lit/.

Where can i find a good critique of Spengler and his work. I keep hearing from places that most of the stuff he said has been refuted and yet, i find nothing that has really refuted, in clear terms or historical facts, his work in Decline nor his model (except someone comparing and preferring another model).

Evening Lit, I thought we could have an 'Awesome phrase' thread. > Sub rosa Translated as 'under the rose', it's is used to denote secrecy. > L'appel du vide Translated as 'call of the void'. It's used to describe the little bastard of a voice inside our heads that pops up at the worst times. For instance you might think something horrendously funny and inappropriate during a moment of silent prayer. Or, when you're standing on a cliff edge and you feel the sudden urge to jump or hear a voice telling you to. I want to learn some more, so make it good /lit/, and make it pretentious!

An offer to anyone Following the surprising success of last nights post I thought 'let us try this again'. From it I got one american male and one british female and both were of value to talk to. In the end neither asked for restitution as they enjoyed the conversation for itself. I am an author who requires a rather frank and deep conversation with someone else, it is my version of mentally unwinding as I just recently finished my new book and beyond a final edit there is nothing more for me to do. Requirements from you are about an hours worth of your time on a webcam and you have to enjoy reading and are willing to be 100% honest about you and your life re: any questions I ask. I am offering financial incentive if necessary however if I could get people that actually have a desire to 'talk' that helps. The reason I need the webcam is not so you can see my face but so I can see yours, it eases me to watch the human face's reaction to what I type. Knowing what I write and the response it generates is... well my stock and fucking trade if I were to boil it down to nothing. Some basic points: I will not reveal my identity or anything about me for rather obvious reasons This is not some veiled attempt at cyber sex. If you want to get naked that's fine but i'm not going to ask I am an intense person so would prefer people that are similar but not a necessity This is not so I can find more 'character' depth for my books, I have reality for that If at all interested write to aspergicwriter at gmail or merely add me on skype by the same name. Or you can ask questions in this thread, I will occupy it until life deems it necessary for me to not.

Hi /lit I am thinking of learning 2 law school and was wondering if you guys had any recommended reading material that I should become familiarized with. I studied sciences in undergrad, so I'm looking to get a good idea of the political science/ethics philosophy material that I should study to have a good idea of what it is 2 law. I ask because I (evidently) greatly value your opinions and tastes. Inb4 law school is sure-fire insta-debt and lack of job. Though I wouldn't mind advice from someone who has experience on the matter.
