sup /lit/, so I subvocalize, which gives me a reading speed of about 30-40 pages an hour for a normal sized book some people read close to 100 pages an hour how do I read faster? when I try to just look at the words and not subvocalize I don't understand fully what I read. I have a long list of books to read, and I want to be able to read more in the free time I have how fast do you read?

GRAVITY'S RAINBOW

I have decided to read the prestigious book by Thomas Pynchon: Gravity's Rainbow, but I have some questions and a set of requirements: >One of the most important things for me in a book is the quality of the paper, thus I would like a book with acid-free paper and not that shitty toilet paper which smells like fart. >A decent cover would be great. Now, if you know an edition which gets approved by my requirements, please, let me know.

Why do people give continental philosophy so much credit when it's obviously full of shit? Seriously, I can't understand how one can read an author like Hegel, Schopenhauer or Hannah Arendt and not go "nigga, are you serious?". Don't even get me started on the french train - Lacan, Derrida, Deleuze, Levinas, Bourdieu - and the rest of those guys. Why is analytic philosophy so superior? Is it because continentalists are talentless hacks who hide bury themselves into an untranslatable language? Please explain.

On philosophy.

Whole lotta y'all think you smart cuz you read philosophers. Anyone else find that they're familiar with 99% of popular philosophical concepts without having being introduced to them? As far as I'm concerned, philosophy's a natural process, 'nd texts on it usually do little more than present some jargon-laden way of having philosophical pissing contests. picture is irrelevant

/lit Don't tell me that you take this asshole seriously ? This nigger criticized Hegel's philosophy because abstraction thinking is "irrelevant" and he adds things that Hegel never said. He just stated some obvious shit about reality and history and implied that reality was neglected by essentialists. Just to say "I'm proud to be an atheist" All he did was to contest philosophers that came before to appear edgy. Although all of his conception was commonly known since antiquity, it was just so obvious that somehow people forgot about it. He should be called the father of fedora's neckberds

"The next real literary “rebels” in this country might well emerge as some weird bunch of anti-rebels, born oglers who dare somehow to back away from ironic watching, who have the childish gall actually to endorse and instantiate single-entendre principles. Who treat of plain old untrendy human troubles and emotions in U.S. life with reverence and conviction. Who eschew self-consciousness and hip fatigue. These anti-rebels would be outdated, of course, before they even started. Dead on the page. Too sincere. Clearly repressed. Backward, quaint, naive, anachronistic. Maybe that’ll be the point. Maybe that’s why they’ll be the next real rebels. Real rebels, as far as I can see, risk disapproval. The old postmodern insurgents risked the gasp and squeal: shock, disgust, outrage, censorship, accusations of socialism, anarchism, nihilism. Today’s risks are different. The new rebels might be artists willing to risk the yawn, the rolled eyes, the cool smile, the nudged ribs, the parody of gifted ironists, the “Oh how banal.” To risk accusations of sentimentality, melodrama. Of overcredulity. Of softness. Of willingness to be suckered by a world of lurkers and starers who fear gaze and ridicule above imprisonment without law. Who knows." -DFW Who disagrees?

When, long ago, the gods created Earth In Jove's fair image Man was shaped at birth. The beasts for lesser parts were next designed; Yet were they too remote from humankind. To fill the gap, and join the rest to Man, Th' Olympian host conceiv'd a clever plan. A beast they wrought, in semi-human figure, Filled it with vice, and called the thing a Nigger.

Can you guys recommend me any romance novels/short stories you consider to have beautiful prose and something beyond airplane-novel depth? The only love stories I know of are the shit with horrendous covers my grandmother reads (which in her own words she likes the best when she knows what's gonna happen pg1). I absolutely loved the chapters of Stoner dealing with his love affair, and in Neon Genesis Evangelion I really adored the relationship between kaworu and shinji (inb4 animu shit eating pleb) TD;LR I want a romance novel/short story that: 1. Has fantastic prose 2. Is not entirely shallow 3.(prefferably but not required)Is about a homosexual relationship. I don't mind if it has an unhappy ending (or even if it's unhappy in general).

What does /lit/ think of my first poem? The air is cool and damp And the sky is deep purple The flint flicks and the lighter Sparks, raising to the dark clouds Everything is still for a moment of calm And then whoosh; and flames The coffin nail lights As the cold air is inhaled And lungs become hit And the smoke flows slowly There is time for all now And the mind ponders

What's /lit/'s opinion on Joseph Conrad? I've heard many early 20th century writers considered him a hack but at least Hemingway disagreed and said it was just fashionable to disparage Conrad's work for no good reason other than what amounted to acquiring hipster cred.

I've run out of interesting things to read. I like strong woman leads such as Katniss in The Hunger Games trilogy (for example) or horror/gore books like The Jigsaw Man by Gord Rollo. Would be nice to get a link to a pdf or ebook file.
