Hello there /lit/. I apologize in advance for starting another Ulysses thread, although it does merit some special attention, does it not?
Anyways I just finished reading the 'Oxen of the Sun' section and I was wondering if any of y'all could give me some insight into this. I'm now halfway through 'Circe' which has its share of ambiguity, but 'Oxen of the Sun' was especially difficult to get through. Let's have a discussion about this, as well as about the rest of the book which is, of course, a difficult read.

Serious question /lit/, how do you think reading fiction will make you more educated? Philosophy I can understand, but pure fiction? Regardless of what you think I do appreciate language and I believe that it can be used aesthetically, but I also believe that the content is more important than the "look" so to speak. Metaphorically, a pretty car is always nice, but I care more about the mechanics.
Since I have nothing else to post as a picture I decided to post this wallpaper I made some time ago. I do think that you will like it.

I've read deeply in Adorno's work. He is a rigorous thinker and his critique of the enlightenment is very strong.
I see the obvious holes in his arguments, especially concerning popular culture and the culture industry, which are lost on most. But I don't care to critique Adorno...because I'm an orthodox fascist who finds nothing problematic with the holocaust, whatsoever. Thursday nights I play trombone in a swing jazz group. Oh, and did I mention that I'm a poet?
Come at me, Adornians.
