/lit/, what was Frege all about? Currently I'm reading Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus and loving it, so I think I might like the early analytics as a whole. Could someone give me a gist of his philosophy?

This is your daily reminder, /lit/, that a demented mind produces demented fruits. Those of you who salivate all over Nietszche's phallus are plainly holding a mirror in front of your mind. Get out of the basement. Make friends of flesh IRL. Pop your cherry. Experience joy and life's meaning. End of story.

I'm a student of English literature and I hate most English literary works. Since I don't live in an English-speaking country, the status of this degenerate language as lingua franca makes moderately lucrative employment opportunities for me --- it's just that I hate what I study and I hate what I am. And I tried to write, and translate some works in English but the one person who read it said I such at it. Should I kill myself?

Sup /lit/ I really enjoy Anthony Fantano and his Needledrop review show. Is there an equivalent for literature? A guy making informative and entertaining videos about new literature? Seems like there's a gap in the market

Hello, /lit/. I'm having trouble formulating a thesis for a research paper for one of my classes. Somehow I need to work Wittgenstein's TLP, and Keat's "Ode On A Grecian Urn" into it. I was thinking something along the line's of arguing that the line "beauty is truth, truth beauty" is tautological, thus rendering the poem meaningless, but I don't know yet... I feel like I may have trouble stretching that into a 7 page essay. Any thoughts, criticisms, or ideas are very welcome

Just finished this. It was marvelous. Has anyone here read it, and if so, does anyone know any other books about (non-beat generation) hipsters, sorry, I mean bohemians, that are worth reading?

I've been really interested in Stalin's history as someone who comes from a tough background, goes through a lot of shit, poverty and disease and ultimately acquires an amount of power he's not mentally fit to own. What books have similar character arc?

After reading this poem, entitled "Design": I found a dimpled spider, fat and white, On a white heal-all, holding up a moth Like a white piece of rigid satin cloth -- Assorted characters of death and blight Mixed ready to begin the morning right, Like the ingredients of a witches' broth -- A snow-drop spider, a flower like a froth, And dead wings carried like a paper kite. What had that flower to do with being white, The wayside blue and innocent heal-all? What brought the kindred spider to that height, Then steered the white moth thither in the night? What but design of darkness to appall?-- If design govern in a thing so small. I decided to start reading Robert Frost. What you gentleman could tell me about him? What of his poems would you indicate?

Hey /lit/ Enjoy this free literature In my experience when one says the word “Super Hero” people get this image of a man in tights or a masked keeper of justice, but could a person be a super hero without necessarily fighting crime? What if someone has a “super power” but doesn’t hit the streets at night and use it to foil all those cliché muggers? When people ask me what I do, I say I’m a super hero.

Looking to see if anyone knows the title of a book I read on vacation. The room I stayed in had a whole library of books so I read one that interested me. Unfortunately I forgot the title so I'm hoping someone here may know what it is. The basic premise was a bunch of hippies on a transport ship traveling from France to New York looking to cause trouble. It was set in the 60's and the leader of the group was called Indian, I believe. They staged multiple revolts on the ship causing havoc for the cabin and the crew. There was also a LSD fueled sex scene. If anyone can recall the name of this book it would be greatly appreciated!

I want to write a story that takes place in the present. With technology, YouTube, Facebook, iPhones, etc being so large a part of our lives, I feel like the only way to make it truly realistic is to use these device's real names. In fiction, is it acceptable to use names of companies, websites, etc? Can you be sued for something like this? What if I mention music, coca-cola, Dr. Pepper, real products. I was thinking of just making up names like Brawndo from Idiocracy or Slurm from Futurama but it just wouldn't seem as realistic this way. What say you?

So just got done reading this. I really should have stopped after the first part. The first chapters with the sister-wives is VASTLY more interesting than the rest of the book, which goes downhill once they're taken from the spotline. /lit/, you got any other books to suggest where wives in Polygyny relationships are the main characters? This book got me really interested in that.

whats up /lit/ I just bought a kindle, and I'm looking for recommendations for ebooks you've found for free on amazon. Just finished reading What Our Eyes Have Witnessed (The Zombie Bible) by Stant Litore... would not recommend. From the description it seems like a badass priest in ancient rome killing zombies, but instead focuses on a slave he rescues and her emotional baggage for the greater portion of the book. I'm into sci-fi, fantasy, and historical fiction mostly, but I'm down to mix it up if you really think its worth it! pic related

So, /lit/, I'm planning on writing a humorous short story. It's about a present day man who jumps forward in time to a future where being a retarded internet neckbeard is cool, society is based on internet culture, and Internet slang ("lol hai dudez!", etc) has become "proper english", so it's actually taught in schools. Maybe it would be better classified as horror fiction...

Question about depressing endings.

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: picturenothing.jpg]
Does a depressing ending, where (say) every character dies neccesarily say the following things: 1. Cheesy, too dark ending. 2. Angsty author who probably hates their parents. 3. Too depressing in general, not entertaining or rewarding to read. ?

Hey there /lit/, could I get some recommendations on what to read next? Books read in this month: The Stranger, Waiting for Godot, Animal Farm, 1984, Fahrenheit 451 //inb4babybooks [Hadn't read anything prior to these this year] What should I go for next? I was thinking Catch-22 or Brave New World next. I eventually want to get to other stuff by Camus and Beckett too. Also, Introductory texts to Presocratics (if there's anything like that) and books on Ancient Greece's history are also welcome. Or if you think I'm "not ready" for such books, point me in the pertinent direction and I'll get right to it.

Found a copy of The Bell Jar at my local coffee shop/used bookshelf for $2. What does /lit think of this book? I've always wanted to read it. Plath seems like she was a very interesting woman. How's her writing? I have about 20 books on my shelf I need to get through this year and I'm trying to decide what to read next...
