Why did Deleuze hate Wittgenstein?

Historical fiction

I'm writing a historical fiction epic Is using historical narratives word for word in parts of my book written over a thousand years ago considered plagiarism? It's pretty obscure stuff that can mostly only be found in the original language and only utilized by niche scholars, so I doubt anyone would notice, but I'm still concerned. Thoughts?

The Stranger by Albert Camus is a terrible piece of shit and here's why: 1 - Meursault is a totally unrelatable character who acts like a jackass to everybody. How can people relate to this bastard? 2 - There is nothing driving the plot. I almost fell asleep reading this crap because nothing ever happens. 3 - There are so many idiots who praise this book because they agree with its fallacious beliefs. It's pretty much Ayn Rand lite, because only selfish assholes like Meursault think like this. 4 - The logic is so bad. If everything is so meaningless then why should Camus write this pointless book? 5 - It seems that the only people who like this book are lonely neckbeards who can't accept that they suck and read books about how terrible everybody else is. 7. If Meursault feels nothing and doesn't care why does he get mad at the priest? This scene was totally out of character and only added to create some sort of closure. 8. It's just written like crap, Camus should take some fucking english lessons 9. It is racist. Why does Camus hate Arabs so much? 10. The plot goes nowhere. There is no character development and nothing happens. I can't believe I wasted so much time reading this book.

Reasonable. Why does this word exist? Even more irritating is that this word is used by courts, media, professionals, well-credentialed individuals, etc. It's vague, subjective, and basically stupid and of zero use for expressing anything. In court language, it seems like a word that's used simply to justify a ruling or opinion without having to substantiate or elaborate on it. >"The court finds that the defendant reasonably exercised his right to murder 50,000 people via mind waves because he was reasonably located on planet earth." >"People have a reasonable expectation of privacy." >"One can find it reasonable to conclude that OP is reasonably a faggot."

So do the reprinted books directly correspond to the original six books? Or does it include the other five books/other stuff?

/lit/ can I ask of you a huge favor? I'm not a very good writer but I just finished up an analytical paper that's due tomorrow. It's only 700 words and was wondering if anyone could critique it. I use a lot of bullshit filler words so any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is the article it is based on and in the following will be my essay. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-debate/the-queen-and-i-find-middle-ground/article13338436/#dashboard/follows/

I got a question for the people of /lit/. tl;dr at the bottom as well. I'm sure it's not something new either. It may have appeared so many times to you it's stains your eyes to even read it being mentioned. I might be breaking rules 1 and 2 here even. But alas I'm not a normal visitor of this board. So I can't tell. If I broke a rule, or it's already being talked about in another thread (I searched for like...five minutes in catalog is all) then report, sage, redirect me, whatever etc. On to the point. This book here. This Fifty Shades of Grey. To be blunt about it, how shitty is it? Or is it actually good? But it's shit right? I ask because someone I know decided to take it upon them to read it, after buying the whole trilogy. Of course I already heard it was shit. Then again I heard. Can't really form a great opinion on what you just heard, right? But the whole idea of it is bothering me. No, not the idea. More like...it's origins. How did it start? Well there's one thing I have a weird dislike for. That is fan fiction. And what is the origins of this book? Fan fiction based on Twilight. So to me the whole thing doesn't sound original at all. Just decided to change a few names and now you got this "original" book. Or is there more to it? Anyways, my friend seems to be swooning over it. Only read the first chapter. But this seems to be a chick's novel, and they are chick. But really /lit/, tell me. Is this book shit? Is it actually worth spending time on? Is it more original than what I've read and know? Side note, recommendations for well written erotica with a plot? tl:dr Is Fifty Shades of Grey shit like everyone says?

What are the philosophical differences between Camus and Sartre? They were bros until they had an essentially political falling-out and then they took to insisting that their philosophies were somehow radically different, but it all seems like the same shit to me (though I'm just a layman) Nausea unrelated

I don't have much of a poetic background, but i'd really appreciate some aid getting into some contemporary poets. Would you kindly recommend anyone? Really the only poetry I've read and really enjoyed is Richard Brautigan and Silverstein.

what does /lit/ think of quantum mechanics basically being a scientific version of Plato's allegory of the cave? (and 2000 years late as it would seem)

Some really good stories, and fairly consistent, as well. Best stories are Little Expressionless Animals, My Appearance, Lyndon, and the eponymous Girl With Curious Hair.
