American Frontier

Hello there. I came from /tg/ and I came in peace. I am looking to run a wild west setting game and would like to read up on the period. Starting with American Civil War. Thing is, I am from Europe and I've no idea what would be a good read to get some knowledge about the time period, other than what I know from TV series and movies. So please advise something easy enough (if possible) to read so I would gain knowledge for my game. Thank you and have a nice day!

Okay so, had this discussion with a few people now and would like to know what opinions /lit/ has on the subject. In todays society, there seem to be a ton of people who are sort of semi-religious. For example, they claim to be christians, to belive in the Bible, but not "litterally", meaning they don't belive that Jesus for example litterally walked on water, or that the world litterally was created in 6 days, or that he was litterally ressurected from the dead. They say that it's a metaphor for something else, that the authorial intent would not be that it should be interpreted litterally. I reckon this is a load of horseshit, as it was written over a long period of time by many different people, most of whom evidently were out to use the church as a means to power. I might just as well say I belive in Spider man and that the authorial intent of whoever wrote a few spiderman comics was not that he "litterally" climbed on walls and could shoot web, but that it's story with a morale to work as a guideline as for how we should live our lives. What's the difference of this and saying the authorial intent of the bible is something else? Discuss

What is the difference between irony and sarcasm? I keep getting mixed messages, so here's my take: -"Yeahhh it so much fun to fill out forms all day long" : Sarcasm -"He died at his birthday": Irony Some people saying that first example is ironic since the meaning is opposite of what you state. I think irony is "naturally" occurring sarcasm. God knows how much i hate being sarcastic.

Most people's heads would explode if they realised how dark books are.

They think their post-watershed TV and movies are SO edgy, so risque, so shocking...but if they read a book. If they only read a book! The great thing is that books don't really have any restrictions on what they can be about, and what they can say, so of course some books are gonna be fucked up. In the Western World, most authors can say whatever the hell they want.

Going to write a poetry anthology for shits and giggles, and to try and do something more productive with my high time. So my question to /lit/ is: What do I need to know about poetry? I mean advanced level and all that shit. What one piece of advice do I need to know about writing that bullshit?

If you have the desire, writing a book of your own is easy, relatively speaking. Editing can be done by yourself and through good friends/ hiring an editor. Printing can be purchased and in different manners. So the process of getting your literary ideas into book form is easy, in this sense. What I almost can't fathom is getting your book out there and known in the sea of books at any given book store. Advertising. So what the fuck can I do, /lit/? I have a huge desire to get my novel finished. I want to write, I like it, I like my ideas. I know I can find a way to afford it all, but when I think about how I could make it known that I have a book so that people may purchase it, I come to a stop. I lose interest. It seems like a waste. I'm entertaining the idea of a kickstarter, since they have surged in popularity. I know funds from such a thing would help with the entire process itself, but especially help with a publicist and getting my novel out there (I think). Even this, however, seems futile to me. Can you aid me in my goal, /lit/?

I'm looking for a book that will genuinely scare me, since many films these days fail to do so. Books that have kept you awake /lit/. Let's hear them.

(I.v.91) from Hamlet: "Adieu, adieu, adieu! remember me." The fourth and final command from the ghost of Hamlet's father to Hamlet himself. Coming back to this play (it was the Simpson's parody that brought me back) I now find the "Adieu's" really interesting, and quite frankly, out of place if not used to satirize the French on behalf of the English audience. Earlier, in the first act (I.iii.73), Polonius appeals to French fashion (fashion being apparel, not behavior in this context) and sensibility while directing his thirty year old son, Laertes, on how to compose himself while boarding internationally, advice the middle-aged Laertes could probably do without considering his age and prior travel experience. Juxtapose Polonius' advice to Laertes with Laertes' advice to Ophelia and one cannot help but judge the advice that Polonius gives as parody, and his appeal to the French as a cheap gag to get Shakespeare's audience excited and impassioned. So now my question becomes what to do with this "Adieu?" It's probably been well documented somewhere, but I've been unsuccessful in finding anything with a cursory MLAbib search. Is the French farewell a gag, or does it run in tandem with some other more serious motif in the play of which I am ignorant? Please advise at your convenience -- I understand this is pretty obscure.

I really don't know if I love or hate the prose of this book. So, /lit/, what do you think of Man's Fate ?
