I see you talking about "pleb-tier literature" on this board. What are the other tiers, and what do you shove in each category? Instinctively, I would say that "pleb-tier" is full of 90 % of what's published and sold today: personal development books, Stephen King books, texts about trendy subjects, etc. Then you'll have some "educated-tier" including contemporary authors that try very hard to make real literature but somewhat fail (Haruki Murakami, Houellebecq, Philip Roth, J. Franzen, etc.), authors that should be formally pleb but touch something sublime (Bukowski), and common scholarly books (the professor Przrszinzscky from Harvard, speechifying about the psychology of terrorism in the 19th century). Then you'll have "fedora-tier" which contains nothing but the finest productions of the human mind, amid other works of huge historical importance: Shakespeare, Borges, Plato, Dostoevsky, Schopenhauer, Marx, Virgil, Freud, Sophocles, any "serious" religious text, etc. Am I correct? (Also: please explain the meme about fedoras.)

I'm interested in the figure of Santa Claus as mythology. I'd like to know what do you think Santa represents in popular culture. I would also like to know if there are other similar myths. So taking from at least one of these things: >old man is good at heart >not God, neither a hero, but immortal, omnipresent, powerful, with no rivals >still, it is human >a gift giver >infinite bag >lives far isolated >communication through mail >embraces the world, omniscient >representative of a time of the year >is perpetuated as myth by people acting in his place (parents giving the gits as if it was Santa) What kind of other characters spring to mind? Fictional or not, western or eastern, old and new alike. Also, what are your favourite Christmas stories?

Hey lit- I'm in creative writing and hoped you would spare a moment to review my work. It was night then, John pull the wallet from his shadowy pocket. Sarah, staring at who did go with john, pressed against what would be the action which would decide her fate john: Love sarah, me alone, please. Sarah: no Sarah cried, running from away the John, in shock. John: You’re tearing apart Sarah!

I know this technically doesn't belong to this board, but I think people here are used to the impact a work of art can have in you. I just finished watching this and it hit me like a fucking tsunami of feels, I can't stop crying. Has any of you watched this?

Poet Amiri Baraka is no stranger to controversy, and his work with avant-garde jazz band the New York Art Quartet (NYAQ) was no exception. Considered the “fifth” member, Baraka appeared on a single track on the group’s 1964 self-titled first album. He recited “Black Dada Nihilismus,” a poem from his second collection of poems, The Dead Lecturer (published under his original name, Leroi Jones). The song sparked instant controversy for its violent imagery and what the New York Times described as Baraka’s “call for black revolutionaries to rape and murder in the service of liberation,” which points directly to the song’s most notorious passage: "Come up, black dada / nihilismus. Rape the white girls. Rape / their fathers. Cut the mothers’ throats." Derided by some critics as hostile and baiting, the lyrics exemplify a “highly politicized avant-garde.” See more at: http://www.poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/5808#sthash.iJCwqqET.dpuf

So, uh, I'm new here, but I figured /lit/ would be the place to ask. Do you think having the 3 unpublished works of J.D. Salinger cause enough press to get a private torrent site shut down? Because they got leaked yesterday and I'm concerned for what.cd.

Well well well are you man enough? That is the question? Myself i was found wanting. What is the SLAM Poetry Challenge you ask? Its simple just watch one of the following videos.... ALL THE WAY THROUGH. Hear are your relevant tiers: Easy Mode: Watch the first 20secs MEDIUM MODE: Half way through HARD MODE: You have to watch the whole way through each video GOD MODE: You not only have to watch, but you must discuss at length about it's subject matter, themes, etc. WIZARD MODE: Its god mode but you watch all the videos listed in a row. First is always hardest. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6wJl37N9C0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5frn8TAlew0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQucWXWXp3k http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmGKzDuEQp0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVmCnAruZZY

Which fictional character do you identify with the most? Who was influential for you? For me it would be Peter Kien from Elias Canetti's "Die Blendung". A very intelligent guy who lives in a library, but also only lives for the library. He despises most other people and avoids contact with them, until he is tricked into a marriage and forced to encounter the emotional rather than the rational side of humans, which completely fucks him over.
