This book is written in homage to writers who don't write, or who quit writing, those who the author dubs Bartlebys in reference to Melville's story. There are a lot of great parts in this book, excellent passages really, that caused me to highlight a lot, but this is a case where the sum is less than its parts. The book is written as footnotes for a main body of work that does not exist. Another strike against it is that it's difficult for me to read books that are so fragmented, that don't have a central and continuous narrative but are rather bursts of thought that blends the line between literary philosophy and fiction. Between the lines, we also are privy to the deterioration of the life of the narrator, as he opts out of life himself - preferring to stay home from his job until he is fired, losing connection with the world outside his home. When reading, there isn't enough of this to be certain that's the main intent of the work or if it's just a complement to his overall theme. I actually did like this book, but much less than I thought I would and wouldn't exactly recommend it to a wide audience. But some elements of /lit/ might enjoy it. A sample below.

"I am sufficiently proud of my knowing something to be modest about my not knowing all" This is a quote from Lolita. I cannot, for the life of me understand it. What is he saying here?

What books do you think could easily have an entire year-long college course dedicated to them, without discussing the impact or history of the book? The class would have to be entirely based on the symbolism and story for it to count. Yes, you could technically do this with any book, but >pic related is really the only one I could think of where the course would be full of lively discussion the whole time. Can /lit/ think of any others?

GET WRITING!!

Okay, /lit/, so you either haven't written anything today or you've written a pathetic amount. Not good enough! Time to get to work. Got to finish that novel up before the summer's end, and that means starting NOW!

Motivational Letter?

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: luvcultur.jpg]
Hello /lit/, first time here! I'll get straight to it.. I have to write a "motivational letter" for my Mars-One application (http://applicants.mars-one.com/) and I'm not sure what they want me to write about. So far, I've been looking at tips from http://www.best.eu.org/student/courses/howToWriteAMotivationLetter.jsp, but some Americans told me a motivational letter is the same as a cover letter for a resume. I've also been looking at this guide for writing cover letters (http://www.union.edu/offices/career/_documents/cover-letter.pdf). Which guide looks more appropriate for writing a motivational letter, which will go along with my application to the Mars One program?

ITT: Literature dealing with personal development, or some such nonsense. "Invictus" by William Ernest Henley Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find me, unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.

I want to read some of Borges fiction. Where should I start? I'm having trouble figuring out which collections are in English. I speak no Spanish whatsoever so the original isn't an option.

Does anyone know who the angels flanking Michael are? I assume that Gabriel and Raphael must be in that picture, but I can't tell.

What is /lit/'s opinion on rules for writing made by famous writers? Here's two which come from the same author: —Don't be afraid to be unoriginal. Steal if you have to. —Over-stylization and gimmicky techniques can hurt more than they can help a work. Subtlety is a virtue lost on the middle class. It's a repost, but I would like to get others' opinions. Pic unrelated.

hey guys, i'm curious as to how one would get into writing. i've always had a knack for writing essays and persuasive papers, so actual linguistics are not my problem. i was thinking something along the lines of short stories as they seem to be a great way to learn the basics. many thanks /lit/

Hello, /lit/. I'm trying to get into philosophy proper this summer, and yet I've realized I have no fucking idea what I'm doing. I've pirated a copy of "History of Western Philosophy", yet I feel like I would get some good input from you guys, by stating the ESSENTIALS. Anybody?

Anyone have recommendations for books on 20th century art? Looking for particularly good books on specific artists and trends rather than a broad overview.

Emerson and nature

So how does Emerson's essay on nature inform the rest of his first and second series of essays?

Is Stig a good name for a character in my book. I also like the variant "stian". Both names mean "the voyager". Bearing in mind this character is from in England and from a middle class background. He is 16 years old. I want to go with this name but perhaps should settle on a more normal name. Once I have the name my story is complete. Please help me!!! I may just end up using my own name, which is James.
