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.

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.
