>"I'm 42 and tired" — Malin Berggren. >I'm 42. Until the year 2002, when I retired, I worked, hard, since I was 17. Despite some health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and never called in sick. I am wealthy, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired. >I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth around” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy or stupid to earn it. >I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes", I’m tired of being told that Islam is a "religion of peace", I’m tired of being told that "Israel is our friend", I’m tired of being told that "everyone is equal", I’m tired of being told that "there are no races", I’m tired of seeing my country being overrun by outsiders while my culture is destroyed.

Why is Romanticism so grotesque, /lit/?

I am reading Naguib Mahfouz's Children of the Alley, and it got me thinking about Abrahamic religions again. (The novel is splendid, you should all read it.) So, what if God really is an angry old omnipotent omniscient man who lives alone and is playing a game with us? Also, from WP: > The protagonist of the book's fifth section is Arafa (????), who symbolises modern science and, significantly, comes after all prophets, while all of their followers claim Arafa as one of their own. lel.

Some questions for /lit/: >Who is the greatest Romantic poet (they don't have to be English)? >What is your favorite piece by your favorite poet? >What is the greatest Romantic poem/piece of literature? >At what point did English Romanticism give way to Victorianism? > Were there any legitimate American Romantics? Hopefully you geniuses are interested enough to answer some of these. Thank you and good day.

Greatest American Writer

43 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ralphlaurendetailsrtwse.jpg]
Who deserves this title? My personal preference is Henry James. Harold Bloom thinks he's the best American novelist but puts Whitman above him since Bloom is mainly a poetry guy. The combination of the quantity and the quality of the output is really unbeatable imo. The prominent novels include the Portrait and the late James trilogy starting with The Ambassadors; his rather unread novels includes masterpieces like the Bostonians and What Maisie Knew. Then there's his short story oeuvre, which is really horribly represented by the The Turn of the Screw. The most paradigmatic Jamesian short story in my mind is The Lesson of the Master. There are quite a few works of the first rank: The Pupil, The Beast in the Jungle, In the Cage. Then there's this remark by Borges in his Paris Review interview: >I think that the whole world of Kafka is to be found in a far more complex way in the [short] stories of Henry James. Someone on /lit/ once said that Proust succeeded better at what James aimed for, but this is nonsense. The aesthetic and moral sense are equipoise in James whereas in Proust the former overruns the latter and takes the narrative drive hostage. I can't think of any American writer with a better body of criticism and travel writings either. Twain was a great travel writer (read his account of the Bayreuth Festival) but a paltry critic. Zadie Smith considered James' critique of George Eliot significant enough to have James as the sole critic mentioned in her essay praising Middlemarch.

Orwell, 1984 and the Soviet Union

26 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: nineteeneighty-four.jpg]
Hey /lit/ I'm currently writing an essay on how George Orwell was criticizing the soviet Union with 1984. The book takes place in a totalitarian state that uses very much the same methods that the Communist Party was using to stay in control, the class system, love for Big Brother, faking news, always on the brink of way, shortage of everything. What am I missing? All google shows me is people saying "dont let the gov control yo lives!!!" >inb4 do your own homework

Is learning ancient greek that difficult? I'm fluent in english and french and I'd only need to be able to read greek. Would it be worthwhile to study the classics in the original?

Awesome writers and poets

Siegfried Sassoon >"He went over with bombs in daylight, under covering fire from a couple of rifles, and scared away the occupants. A pointless feat, since instead of signalling for reinforcements, he sat down in the German trench and began reading a book of poems which he had brought with him. When he went back he did not even report. Colonel Stockwell, then in command, raged at him. The attack on Mametz wood had been delayed for two hours because British patrols were still reported to be out. "British patrols" were Siegfried and his book of poems." Robert Graves, Goodbye to All That (London: Penguin, 1960), p. 174.
