I cant find any PDF or EPUB versions of Ernst Junger's works online. I haven't read any of his stuff yet but it seems good. Specifically, I'm looking for Eumeswil, The Storm of Steel, Alladin's Problem, and On the Marble Cliffs.

Hey /lit/ what do you think about Roberto Bolaño? Just read (and loved) 2666, and about to start Los Detectives Salvajes. So.. /lit/ give your opinion on this artist.

So you SHOULD have your Christmas shopping done by now. Let's go through the list of books we've bought, and why we bought them for the person we're gifting them to. >Mom >Selected Writings of Thomas Aquinas Mom is big into Catholic Philosophy so I thought she might appreciate a good hardcover copy of Aquinas' essential works >Dad >"Americans at War" by Stephen E. Ambrose Dad loves military history, so this collection of essays by Ambrose was a no-brainer for me to get for him. >Paternal Grandmother >"My Name is Falon" by Kim Wiese My grandmother is a first generation immigrant from Scotland. This book follows the life of a young Scottish girl who moves to America in the mid-1800's and lives on the frontier. I hope my grandmother likes it. >Maternal Grandmother >"Behind the Scenes" by Elizabeth Keckley This book is the life story of the free-black woman who was the dressmaker and close friend of Mary Todd Lincoln, the wife of Abraham Lincoln. My Mom's Mom loves anything having to do with the Pre-Civil War era and so I think she'll like this book.

So, /lit/, do any of you memorize passages from novels, plays, or poems that you enjoy? I can recite the inscription on the gate to Hell from Dante's Inferno, Puck's final speech from Midsummer's Night Dream, and most of Prince Hal speaking over Falstaff's (apparently) dead body from Henry IV, Part I. I used to have some other passages memorized, but now they've degraded into random lines here and there. Am I just weird or do any of you do the same?

Where would be an adequate starting point for someone wanting to jump into Greek Tragedy? Also, are the tragedies of Seneca (Trojan Women, Phaedra, Octavia etc) unique to their author or are they simply Roman versions of Greek tales?

Why do so many authors/artists kill themselves Is it because they are artists or is it because they are depressed people who just happen to be artists?

Hello philosophers, I have a brain bender question. Could an existentialist claim that dying in a death camp as a Jew in World War Two was their own fault?

So I've outlined myself a nice good reading list to study modernity. Thoughts? Does it pretty much capture most important strains of thought in the west from the past 200 or so years? Phase 1 (Critical Theory): Marx (The Portable Marx) Freud- Civilization and it's Discontents + Beyond the Pleasure Principle Gramsci- Prison Notebooks Lukacs- History and Class Consciousness Benjamin- Illuminations + Reflections Adorno- Dialectic of Enlightenment + Minima Moralia Marcuse- One Dimensional Man Fromm- Escape from Freedom Debord- Society of the Spectacle Althusser- For Marx Deleuze- Anti-Oedipus Phase 2 (Philosophy): Kant- Prolegomena Hegel- Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences Nietzsche- Genealogy, Zarathustra Kierkegaard- Fear and Trembling, Sickness Unto Death Heidegger- Being and Time, Later Writings Wittgenstein- Philosophical Investigations Phase 3 (not strictly marxist readings on modernity): Arrendt- On Revolution, The Human Condition Foucault- Discipline and Punish McLuhan- Understanding Media Barthes- Mythologies Habermas- Theory of Communicative Action Butler- Gender Trouble Kristeva- Portable Kristeva Baudrillard- Simulacra and Simulation

Why does fiction with Frankenstein's Monster playing a role in it almost always refer to him as simply "Frankenstein"? Is it just because he wasn't given any other name and Victor Jr. doesn't sound intimidating enough? Or is it just because people think this IS Frankenstein and are too stupid to realize that he has no name other than "monster" and that his creator is Victor Frankenstein?

Hello, /lit/, I have only read 10 books so far this year, compared to 52 books in 2010, 48 in 2011 and 26 in 2012. I want to read one book a day until the end of the year (so as to have read at least 20 books). Do you have recommendations of great novels of 100-200 pages that could be read within a day?

Does anyone else happening to be browsing /lit/ right now have problems with attention span when it comes to novels? I can read articles, magezines, blog posts, chans, all sorts of things without losing my patience or getting bored... but I can't ever read more than a few pages out of a novel at a time before growing incredibly antsy and feeling like I absolutely HAVE to get up and do something else. And it's not this way with movies or games either. Just books. Even many short stories can't keep me long before I start feeling like I need to get up and walk around the house. I've considered Adult A.D.D. but since this only really applies to novels I don't think that's it. Does anyone else have this problem or have any reasonable explanation for it? Image mostly unrelated.

But not really, because we don't 'do' that here. Very good book though. Seemed painfully average the first time, half good chapters and half bad, now I consider it a very good read. So many well-written sections. Wallace through and through. Interesting ideas, well thought out characters, and non-linear and disparate. I know most of /lit/ has read this, but why don't more people enjoy it? Do you have to read it at least twice to enjoy it a lot?
