What's wrong with being a romanticism-is-golden-age faggot? Isn't that what romanticism is all about?

I was reading about Baudrillard, then came upon this. I know little of psychoanalysis, thinking the brain more the domain of neuroscientists. Is it a recommended read? Or are there any other works of the authors of particular merit?

What are some easter eggs (such as the first letter in every chapter spelling a sentence) you've found in books?

Has anyone here adopted a philosophy of living that has changed their life or brought them out of a depressive, dreadful life? If so, what philosophy was it? I'm looking for a philosophy that can change you as a religion can change a criminal into a decent, happy civilian. I prefer to stay away from religion as I find it corrupt. Too many innocent lives have been taken from religious wars and persecutions.

I was literally laughing all day because of this. >...gray, lonely, asexual and depressing people rendered inconsolable by the death of a pet. It's like a microcosm of 4chan. I wish DFW could be alive to write about this website, he would've been in his element.

Fuck shitshitshit /lit/ i can't help, as much as I try, being edgy. I can think what I want, do what I personally want, I'm cool with myself but whenever I try to communicate with someone else about my opinions I get reactions like "wow that was edgy". I don't understand this shit. I think I'm a logical person. Or maybe not? Am I still a kid who can't understand this world or maybe everyone out there is just afraid of everything? Opinions and similar experiences /lit/?

Sup /lit/ semantic question here; is there a common phrase for 'feeling of both amusement and disgust' as well as 'capriciousness brought about by apathy'. I'm not writing or anything, I'm just curious. Also if you have any similar questions I suppose you might as well post in this thread.

Hey /lit/, can you help me Analyse this passage from TKAMB A boy trudged down the sidewalk dragging a fishing pole behind him. A man stood waiting with his hands on his hips. Summertime, and his children played in the front yard with their friend, enacting a strange little drama of their own invention. It was fall, and his children fought on the sidewalk in front of Mrs. Dubose’s. . . . Fall, and his children trotted to and fro around the corner, the day’s woes and triumphs on their faces. They stopped at an oak tree, delighted, puzzled, apprehensive. Winter, and his children shivered at the front gate, silhouetted against a blazing house. Winter, and a man walked into the street, dropped his glasses, and shot a dog. Summer, and he watched his children’s heart break. Autumn again, and Boo’s children needed him. Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough.

Objectivism

I don't get why objectivism is considered bad. Is it bad because she says that everyone's personal interest can only be attained through capitalism? Is it because Atlus Shrugged is literal shit? Is it the actual philosophy itself? Btw, I'm not saying it's good. I'm saying I know nothing about it and I feel like I should Pic related: I THINK this is Ayn Rand. I found this picture at a local thrift shop.

Is any of /lit fascinated by turn of phrase? I've always, but more particularly more recently, found that it, especially in informal context, is a far more apt way of conveying with accuracy an idea or a sentiment etc. I also remember being a child and watching my father's mastery of storytelling as would interchange,example, the phrase 'I think' with 'As far as I can make out' or replacing the word 'obviously' with ' I think it goes without saying'. What's your take on it.

Hey /lit/ how do I become competent and literary analysis? Surely it is not just stapling meaning onto things that could fit.

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.

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.

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