I translate hentai manga from Japanese to English. I have not left my house in nearly a decade, and I rarely interact with anyone even online (no friends, etc) so I have a hard time creating natural dialogue. Does anyone have any tips to help me improve? I really hope I get a response that's not from a bully.

Opinions on wattpad? For those who don't know, wattpad is an online platform where users can publish their stories/poems/etc and others can comment and vote them. I just joined because a friend told me about it, but I found the quality of most stories to be rather poor.

Does anyone have a link to A Strategy of Style or Copy and Compose, both by Winston Weathers and Otis Winchester? Or just good writing books in general.

Zampano liked animals. Far away. All those cats he would talk to in that weedy courtyard. At dawn. At night. So many shades slinking out from under that dusty place like years, his years, could they be like my years too? though certainly not so many, not like him, years and years of them, always rubbing up against his legs, and I see it all so clearly now, static announcements that yes! hmmm, how shocking, they still are there, disconnected but vital, the way memories reveal their life by simply appearing, sprinting out from under the shadows, paws!-patter-paws-paws!, pausing then to rub up against our legs, zap! senile sparks perhaps but ah yes still there, and I'm thinking, has another year resolved in song?-- though let me not get too far from myself, they were after all only cats, quadruped mice-devouring mote-chasing shades, Felis catus, with very little to remind them of themselves or their past or even their tomorrows, especially when the present burns hot with play, their pursuits and their fear, a bright flash to pursue (sun a star on a nothing's back), a dark slash to escape (there are always predators...), the spry interplay of hidden things and visible wings flung upon that great black sail of rods and cones, thin and fractionary, a covenant of light, Ark for the instant, echoing out of the dark and the Other, harmonizing with the crack-brack-crisp-tricks of every broken leaf of grass or displaced stick, and so thrust by shadow and the vague hope of color, into a rhapsody of motion and meaning, albeit momentary, pupil pulling wider, wider still, and darker, receiving all of it, and even more of it, though still only beholding some of it, until in the frenzy of reception, this mote-clawing hawk-fearing shade loses itself in temporary madness, leaping, springing, flinging itself after it all, as if it were possessed (and it is); as if that kind of physical response could approximate the witnessed world, which it can't, though very little matters enough to prevent the try-- all of which is to say, in the end, they are only cats but cats to talk to just the same before in their own weaving and wending, they Kilkenny-disappear, just as they first appeared, out of nowhere, vanishing back into the nowhere, tales from some great story we will never see but one day just might imagine (which in the grey of gentler eyes will prove far more than any of us will ever need; "enough," we will shout, "enough!" our bellies full, our hearts full, our ages full; fullness and greater fullness and even more fullness; how then we will laugh and forget how the imagining has already left us) slinking back into that place of urban barley, grass, fennel, and wheat, or just plain hay, golden hay, where--Hey! Hey! Hey-hey! Hay days gone by, bye-bye, gone way way away."

What's all the hype about this book? I started reading it about a month ago and finished the second chapter after a couple days and can't bring myself to finish it. I just don't get it. There was so much hype surrounding it and, yeah, the premise is very interesting. And yeah I get the symbolism for loss of identity and all that shit. But it just couldn't keep me interested. Can someone explain what the fuck I'm missing here?

Does anyone feel emotionally drained after writing something that finally seems good? It's almost like after a one night stand, a feeling of being exhausted and subtle disgust "Did I really do that?".

Hi my kindly brothers. Most of the times when someone mentions Goethe someone other will thinks about "The Sorrows of Young Werther" or "Faust", only few of them will think about what I'm here to talking about: Elective Affinities. Take ingredients useful for a chemical theory, go to the laboratory and then let them mix. This is probably how someone can explain in few words what the novel is about, but it would even be a lie because passions don't work on a exact way, the A element can be confused with the B, also the C with the D; what a mess can this achieves? Oh, there is even an answer, and if you want you can find it.

So I've started reading E.A. Poe and it's pretty hard. While enjoyable, I've often needed to read the same passage multiple times to understand the picture, forget any meaning possibly involved. For instance, in Masque of Red Death, which I've read over and over again in it's entirety, I still don't understand how the rooms are set up. Could anyone elaborate for me?

What are some books and authors that will give me a broad foundation on post modernism? I would like to be very familiar with the core concepts and able to use the lens of postmodernism to analyze my area of study in a different light. Pic unrelated

Before I ask the main questions of this thread (concerning the famous critical book 7 Types of Ambiguity, by William Empson) I would like to make some considerations about the underestimated class of workers known as literary critics. I really think that good literary critics are some of the best professors a writer can have during his life. These man and women spend great part of their lives, hours and hours of their days, focusing on certain aspects on the work of a particular author (or authors), and generally they do it for no other reason than simply by pure love and respect for the writers they analyze. Generally these critics do not acquire fame or glory, and are only known and respect by a few scholars and readers. It’s very rare for a literary critic to achieve fame, and when that happens it’s mostly because it is an asshole with edgy opinions and obnoxious personality, being that people buy he’s or her books not because of its content, but because of the stupid personality of the author (Harold Bloom is an example). Since Shakespeare is my favorite writer I have read a lot of criticism on him, and my personal list of best critical books about Shakespeare is this one (in no particular order): >Shakespeare’s Imagery, by Caroline Spurgeon; >Shakespeare’s Language, by Frank Kermode; >Shakespeare’s Metrical Art, by George T. Wright; >The Development of Shakespeare’s imagery, by Wolfgang Clemen; >The Poetry of Shakespeare’s Plays, by F.E. halliday; >Shakespeare’s Uses of The Arts of Language, by Sister Mirian Joseph; >The Language of Shakespeare’s Plays, by B. Ifor Evans Many of these books are not particularly famous, but I can guarantee that my development as a reader (and above all, as a writer) was tremendously enhanced due to the works of these man and women. I thank them from all my heart for they works, for all the time and effort they have dedicated to analyze aspects of Shakespeare’s writing that would seem, to the majority of population, of no interest. By reading these books one develops an enormous sense of awe and wonder for Shakespeare. He was truly a colossal genius of language. But this thread is about 7 Types of Ambiguity, by William Empson. I have never read this book, but I was recently leafing through a copy of it at random and, no matter which page I look up, the text was always incredibly enlightening. So my question is: >You guys who have read this book, please, speak what you thought of it. What was your impression of the work? Is it really a critical must read? Thank you all.

Are there any philosophers besides Cornelius Castoriadis who rejected post-modernism without becoming reactionaries or neo-positivists/vulgar rationalists?
