Hey /lit/...George R.R. Martin is a talentless hack that blatantly plagiarized European history and raped the unabridged Oxford English Dictionary for his abortion of a novel. I like the show though... CAPTCHA: ofuckfis mann.

Commercial fiction vs Literary fiction

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: photo_lg_honduras.jpg]
So I'm a senior in high school taking AP Literature. We have so far read a few short stories and covered chapter 1. Now we must right an essay on the difference between commercial and literary fiction and which is which (if either) between the stories "The Most Dangerous Game" and "Hunters in the Snow." So I wrote my introductory paragraph and was hoping for some constructive criticism. Richard Connel’s “The Most Dangerous Game” and Tobias Wolff’s “Hunters in the Snow” are both short fictional stories that under a spectrum have similar qualities but differ between the characteristics of commercial and literary fiction. Both these stories deal with the sport of hunting; in “The Most Dangerous Game,” the protagonist is literally being hunted down by a man who is obsessed with hunting and finds that humans are the most challenging prey due to the fact that they are able to reason and use logic, apart from animals that can’t. In “Hunters in the Snow,” the three main characters in the story are hunting deer; however they have internal conflicts that are less clearly defined that lead the reader to have to make insight into what it is they are truly hunting for.

i'm watching tv and a commercial comes on. they always come on. like every 15 minutes or so. there are usually about 3 or 4 in a row. sometimes the last one gets cut off abruptly in a weird way (have you ever noticed that?). it's like some idiot forgot to push the button that cuts off an infinite string of commercials. wake up sir. this is your purpose in life and you can't even to this. i used to hate commercials. from my heart seriously hate them. it's kind of funny. well satan incarnate was trying to poison my mind with consummerist hedonistic self indulgent thoughts. i don't care so much now. about consumerism. what's the point of getting so angry about that anyways? just buy that toaster oven. just do it. buy that goddamn toaster oven and enjoy it. i can feel the commercials are about to end. i forgot what i was watching. i think that's hilarious when that happens. you're with your friends watching commercials and no ones saying anything then someone says 'what were we watching again?' and theres silence for a couple seconds. it makes you feel like a complete idiot. it's the funniest thing. a horse trots across the glass screen (or is it plastic?). oh right. i was watching a documentary about Thomas Jefferson. it's pulling a carraige (somebody important in it im sure). it's ok. a little boring to be honest. it just goes on and goes about how great he was. he had lunch with the govenor and some important lawer every week because of how smart he was. ok i get it. it's supposed to be inspiring and all but the thing is he did all this great stuff by the time he was already my age. what have i done with my life so far. it's too late for me. i'm doomed.

My prof this year would continually bring up Wittgenstein as an example of a bad philosopher, someone he claimed was intellectually dishonest, as well as the leader of a cult. He claimed that Wittgenstein "fooled" most/all of his followers into following him through his use of purposely vague and ambiguous language. My prof never provided specific textual examples to support his claims, as Wittgenstein was not actually part of the course syllabus. I am interested in what /lit/ thinks of these claims. Speaking as someone who just finished his first year of undergrad, I have not yet read Wittgenstein, and only know of him from my professor's minor diatribes and summaries on the internet.

How to name

Hey /lit/, was wondering if any of you felt like helping me with something that I have wondered for a long time. I'm starting to make a little story for my fantasy character, and I'm stuck on choosing a name. I would like it to have meaning behind it, and have no idea how to do that. For example, Kratos 'supposedly' means power in ancient greek. Any translator I try, I don't get anything like that. (and I obviously do not know anyone who speaks ancient greek to confirm). I've tried translating 'strong' 'leader' etc in different languages and just messing around with the word to get a cool looking name, but, nothing seems to work. If theres some special, secret 'root words for names' thing someone could show me, or something, so I could try to get just the right name for each personality of each character, that would be great.

/lit/ I need a name for a character that looks like this guy. Person in pic is Amir Aczel, some random (and not very good) academic author who happens to look almost identical to the person the character is based on. Amir isn't cutting it for a name. The real guy's name is Peter. Short and simple. What should my character be?

Hey /lit/ when was the last time you left a book unfinished? Mine was 15 years ago. I can´t help it but when I start something, I have to finish it no matter how shitty it is. It's like I'm afraid of losing something, and I'm afraid of judging a book for it's first half, or 100 pages, or it's cover. Anyone feeling the same here? Any advice? I feel like I'm wasting time. It doesn't happen very often. I enjoy most things I read, but when it happens it's a royal pain in the ass.

I'm trying to remember the name of a book I read as a kid. I thought it was part of the Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark books or but I haven't seen it listed anywhere in the series. It was about how to set up a Halloween party and the title was similar to the series, Scary Stories to Tell at Your Scary Halloween party or something. The inside had ideas for kids making decorations and some tips for themed foods. That's about all I can recall but any help would be greatly appreciated.
