I think Shakespeare's body should be exhumed.
Let's be honest: he was by far the greatest of all poets (his metaphoric and imagistical inventiveness is extraordinary even among the other geniuses of poetry, like Dante, Homer, Milton and Pessoa, for example), and probably the greatest of all writers too (he covered various topics and created thousands of characters) . The paradox is that we know almost nothing about the greatest genius of the language that mankind has ever seen.
The hunger for information is so great that experts spend years sifting through musty old parchments from the Elizabethan era in search of any scraps of information (these scrolls are legal and civil records, which are usually cold and impersonal).
Well, why not open once and for all the tomb of the great genius and found what it shelters? We could know the height of Shakespeare, his facial features, we might even know with which clothes he was buried and what was the cause of his death.
I think we should do a campaign to exhume Shakespeare. (And please, don’t come with conspiracy theories, because anyone that have study how English countryside schools were effective for the development of language skills, and anyone who read about the enormous amount of references in Shakespeare’s works of aspects of the country and rural life will soon realize that the man of Stratford was, indeed, the author of the plays).
Exhume Shakespeare, go!

I'm an ignorant human being and I need some help from you guys in /lit/
I'm going to be leaving society for awhile to escape distractions and ignorance and I plan on reading a lot. I seek understanding of nature, the universe, and my mind. There are just so many wonderful books out there on philosophy, nature, the human mind, sounds, astronomy, meditation, love, truth, etc. I have many in mind that i will be bringing on my journey but Im sure many of you know more than i do.
I will also be in the northwest united states wilderness so I figured anything about surviving off the land with potentially no outside help would also be very helpful in my jorney for inner peace

(A) PoMo Lit is "about the endless deferral of truth, reason, and clarity as a means to finding truth, reason, and clarity."
(B) "(When speaking about psychological development) adolescence is inherently a time of disturbance and psychological confusion."
(=) Therefore, we can conclude that PoMo Lit could be easily defined as "Adolescent Literature".

Hey /lit/, it's Sunhawk again.
I'm going travelling for a few months in South East Asia. I have a nook, but the screen is pretty fragile.
What's the best cover/container for a nook that's going to be in a backpack and probably bashed around a bit? All I can find is flimsy leather cases, but I'm not sure if they're durable enough. Ideally I'd like something metal, but there doesn't seem to be any manufactures making them.
My warmest regards,
