What is /lit/'s view on Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy? Personally I do not like it, and reading it at parts is straight up painful. It could have possibly been a bad translation (it was the Penguin Classics version) but it seems so... "immodest". One moment he is humbling himself, but at the other he inducts himself into the "Circle of Classical Poets" and reminds us, the reader, that what we're reading is a great work. Not to mention the times when he uses his work to criticise contemporary figures and condemn them to hell. I don't know, maybe I let Dante's hubris blind me from a great work of art; I intend to read it through again over the summer.

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.

A problem that I suspect as much as half of the people that visit this board suffer from is that they often wish to be a writer but hardly ever have the desire to write. The cause of this problem is ambition. You want so much to be like the writers that you admire that you daren't ever write anything down, fearing the discovery that your best writing may not resemble theirs. You can write as much crap as you like on 4chan and elsewhere without this anxiety because in these situations you can always forgive yourself for lack of genius by saying that, "well, it's not like I'm trying my best, it's only 4chan." This problem applies to many situations in life. A metaphor that I have seen a writer use before to describe these situations is the metaphor of a man that wants to build a tower. If the man spends all day wondering how high he can build his tower and worrying that it mightbmatch up in height to the towers others have built, well then he'll never get to starting on his tower. You can't squander your care on calculating approximately how good of a writer you may possibly be, else the danger will be that you'll never get started on becoming a writer at all. An American writer put it, though I can't remember whom, that people from his country so often want to be great writers that they never even manage to be good ones. The best advice given on this matter comes from Jesus Christ, who said not to plague yourself with thoughts of tomorrow, as tomorrow will have plenty of evil thoughts to deal with itself. You gain nothing by turning the thought of tomorrow, or the thought of being a great writer 'tomorrow', into something that causes you anxiety today. You can't let the thought of the future defeat your present. Pic is a great writer who probably never had much anxiety because he developed a love of writing at an early age before he developed a love for the vanity of being a "great writer".

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.

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.

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.

Counseling and therapy are forms of enculturation, as is any social role which involves the act of teaching. Describe in a short essay how this relates to literature, or the production thereof.

Is 1984 worth reading? It is genre fiction, but it is also a classic now?

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.
