What's the best book(s) if I want to get H.P. Lovecraft's stuff in print? I know you guys have a grudge with one of the books out there (the binding is bad or something?) I have 2 books that have most of his stories, but they are falling apart from overuse and I could use a new one

Hey /lit/, I need your help. I've an adjective in my mind, but I can't seem to remember it for the life of me, and it's wrecking my head. Was driving today, and my mum was being terrible, saying we weren't going to make it on time because of every little small obstacle that came in our way. It's not exactly a defeatist attitude, but it's something similar, and if I follow my gut instinct, the adjective is D-something. Despondent... not it either. Basically, it means someone who - at the first sign of trouble - wholeheartedly feels it's the "be all, end all" of circumstances, and that they're doomed, and nothing they do can fix it. Please help me /lit/, I can't keep this up any longer, the word is irritating me so badly.

So I just started reading again, for the first time since high school. I mean, I have always read a ton of history books, but that isn't really reading. Anyways, So I just picked up Catch-22 and Slaughterhouse 5, loved them, but I was a little confused as to what stuff meant. I kept seeing stuff that was obviously symbols but don't know what they symbolize. Is there somewhere I can go to read analysises of books and such that will tell me what the fuck is going on? When I look all I can fin is stupid homework help sites.

After reading Bourdieu's Distinction and the Aristocracy of Culture, I decided to look for some discussion, only to find blog posts that were either trivial, or full of misinterpretations. Any thoughts on this particular piece of writing?

Hello, /lit/ I was hoping you could give me a word for or that describes someone who takes advantage of their own suffering/misfortune. We have all known someone who tries to get a pity party for themselves. An extreme example might be a cancer patient at a party who walks up to every friend and stranger and tells them he/she has cancer just to get attention/pity/free sex.

Holy shit! I just finished that and it was awesome. The way he constructs his sentences. Pretty cool. Though it doesn't say much -nothing grand or great, other than the psychological touches but that was some fine read. Considering that even Pynchon himself dissed this one, I wonder how his other works are. What should I read next?

Why do so many people express an absolute disdain for the medium of film in praise of literature? I've met too many idiots who were absolutely convinced that books and movies cannot coexist as respectable art forms; they seem to be most vocal about this when Hollywood attempts a canon "masterpiece" (the new Gatsby adaptation, for example). Seriously.

Is it only me? Hey /lit/. I loved to read when I was growing up, but as I started to become more and more a serious writer myself, I began to read more for technical and informational need that simply for pleasure. Today I spend my reading hours much more with books that help me to develop my own skills (and that give me sources for my works) than reading for pleasure, or to feed a curiosity of knowing a lot of different writers. Much of what I read is Shakespeare and the critical literature on Shakespeare. He is my role model (I write in Portuguese, and the drama tradition in Portuguese is extremely weak and poor – I will concentrate my efforts on this niche of the literary spectrum; I also like poetry, and the drama allows me to use a poetic language and, at the same time, create character’s and tell histories), and I decided to read all the major critical works written on him, so I could understand all of his techniques and rhetorical skills. I also read a great deal of books on the topics of metaphors and similes (and all the major poetic techniques) and also on theater. Also, most of my reading time I dedicate to books on subjects that touch what I am currently writing. For my works I have already read technical books on several different subjects, for example: books about birds; about horses; about the making of perfume; on wine and champagne; on firearms; about the flora and fauna of a particular region; on the operation of slaughterhouses and tanneries; about agronomy; on Hollywood romantic comedies of the 30s, 40s and 50s; about slang and metaphors for sexual acts and on the best and most creative phrases ever made about sex; on the romantic comedies of Ernst Lubitsch and Billy Wilder; on cooking; on sailing and etc. - I read more books to collect material for my writing than the actual works of other writers.

Sup /lit/, first time poster here, but I guess there's no time like the present to start. I'm moving away from home next work for an engineering job for about 4 months. I'll be living alone, I know no one, and will be on camp. I'm going to take this opportunity to try improve my literature tastes as much as I can. I'm looking for some readings that I can actually take something out of, most of the shit I've read over the last few years hasn't really resonated with me or I grew out of. (Palahniuk, King, Bukowski, + other entry level stuff) I don't really mind reading long books as long as the payoff is worth it (Under the Dome is the exact opposite of what I mean, got to the end and couldn't believe it) I'm also not sure if it's a bad idea jumping head first into stuff Brothers Karamazov, War and Peace, etc. But I've always felt like they're classics and I have to read them. Maybe some novels that may benefit from me being somewhat alone and away from home could help me appreciate them a little more also. I've been through the sticky and I still have more to go through, but what in your mind are ESSENTIAL readings? Thanks in advance

Let's write some poems like this: The badger and the fish were playing in the garden, with a flower and then the fish said 'hey! I need a shower!' the badger shot himself.
