No, I understand it's about the written word, I agree there, but there's a lot of times the text directly refers to a picture so it's probably relevant to show that picture. When the picture has nothing to do with the post (the majority of them) you're probably good not to include it. Just makes it more coherent rather than reading "he looks like this" over and over with nothing to actually look at. Least that's how I'd do it.

APEX JANNY CROWNEAN AMBER ALERT: For the 2ND SEASON BOOK CLUB LISTINGS, C >>1679

NUMERO DULCE: 4 DA /lit/PENDIUM (aka BACKLAWG OV SUBMISSIONS), C THIS MEGA: https://mega.nz/folder/ThhnnayI#T30OHb3sHifcmVzLlnkYZg


Good weekend my friends,

I tried to find a way to show my randomizer results but I couldn't figure out how and I was ill prepared and didn't write it out properly. Anyways, their weeks pick was Eugene Onegin by Pushkin.

>The story is told by a narrator (a lightly fictionalized version of Pushkin's public image), whose tone is educated, worldly, and intimate. The narrator digresses at times, usually to expand on aspects of this social and intellectual world. This narrative style allows for a development of the characters and emphasizes the drama of the plot despite its relative simplicity. The book is admired for the artfulness of its verse narrative as well as for its exploration of life, death, love, ennui, convention, and passion.



Now the pdf is not the Nabakov translation which is what was requested but I could not find the ebook for that.

This is a shorter novel (thank goodness), essentially I don't want to pressure you all into concluding each novel on time but at least a solid list will be built and we can read on our own time.

Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

These are some history books I've been reading lately.

The Story of Civilization Part 11: The Age of Napoleon. I'm usually not a fan of Will Durant but this is book provides a good synopsis of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic era in France. Those parts of the book make a nice little companion piece to David Chandler's "Campaigns of Napoleon". The book spreads itself too thing, though, by trying to cover every facet of Western Civilization during that period. For example, there's an entire chapter dedicated to Beethoven and several more just about poets and philosophers of the time. It's just too much to tackle in a meaningful way in just a single volume. Even the three-volume Encyclopedia of French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars failed to do that. Interestingly, neither that work or this has a section about Edmund Burke. There are offhand mentions made here and there (usually portraying him as the embodiment of stuffy English opposition to the revolutionaries) but no serious examination of him like there is about the other significant English philosophers of his day. This is especially surprising from Durant given his fascination with the history of philosophy.

The Italian Wars 1494-1559. This is the book I could find covering what was essentially the first modern European conflict. It does a decent job of giving a rundown of the events without doing that gay pop-history thing of trying to be like a novel. Personally I would have liked a little more focus on the military aspect over the political but I realize that's just my own autism.

Four Princes: Henry VIII, Francis I, Charles V, Suliman the Magnificent and the Obsessions that Forged Modern Europe. This covers roughly the same period as the Italian Wars but focuses on the lives of the titular four rulers who dominated Europe in the first half of the 16th century. Most of the figures it discusses, outside of those four, are portrayed in a rather one-dimensional way. It reminded me of the documentaries the History Channel used to air before it became all about pawnshops and aliens. Overall, it's okay I guess.

China Condensed Absolute shit. It reads like a summery of a Wikipedia article but without citing any sources and even more fabrications. It presents highly contested theories (like the Huns being the same people as the Xiongnu) and legends as facts. It's also very biased; it glorifies China as much as Post too long.

Been reading this recently after seeing it mentioned on wizchan, pretty good and this section mentions how studying psychological warfare throughout history can give a better understanding than typical history books.
https://www.gutenberg.org/files/48612/48612-h/48612-h.htm

Also shows how ridiculous major battles could be back in the old days
>This type of psychological warfare device-the use of unfamiliar instruments to excite panic-is common in the history of all ancient countries. In China, the Emperor-usurper Wang Mang on one occasion tried to destroy the Hunnish tribes with an army that included heavy detachments of military sorcerers, even though the Han Military Emperor had found orthodox methods the most reliable; Wang Mang got whipped at this. But he was an incurable innovator and in 23 A.D., while trying to put down some highly successful rebels, he collected all the animals out of the Imperial menagerie and sent them along to scare the enemy: tigers, rhinoceri, and elephants were included. The rebels hit first, killing the Imperial General Wang Sun, and in the excitement the animals got loose in the Imperial army where they panicked the men. A hurricane which happened to be raging at the same time enhanced the excitement.

The Rise and Fall of Sweden as a Military Superpower 1611-1721. This gives an overview of Swedish military conflicts from the reign of Gustav Adolph to Karl XII. The author is biased in favor of Sweden but not to the degree that he ignores the faults of the Swedes and he presents the opinions of other historians alongside his own on debated points. It does exactly wat it sets out to do.

Samuel Rawson Gardiner's The Thirty Years War. As you can gather from the title, it's about the Thirty Years' War. I think this is a very good book despite, or maybe because of, the fact that it's 150 years old. The author seems to place most of the blame for the war on the Holy Roman Empire's clusterfuck of a political system and he portrays everyone involved in the conflict, with the exception of Gustav Adolph and maybe one or two French commanders, as drooling retards whose every success happened only because of luck. If recent history is anything to go by, that's probably the most realistic view.

The Rise and Rule of Tamerlane. This is the only English language book about Tamerlane I could get my hands on well, there was another one but it said on the back that it's "half history half travelogue" and that put me off; I don't care about some faggot writer's paid vacation. It's basically a series of essays detailing how his government was set up and his policies towards different issues. The major events of Tamerlane's life are mentioned but only briefly most of the time. It's valuable if you're interested in that specific area of his life I guess.

The Cambridge Illustrated Atlas of Warfare: The Middle Ages 768-1487 and The Cambridge Illustrated Atlas of Warfare: Renaissance to Revolution 1492-1792. Two books that list the the major conflicts which took place between the rise of Charlemagne and the rise of Napoleon with contemporary artwork alongside each one. The explanations are very shallow but they work well enough for quick reference material. It's a better alternative to Wikipedia in my opinion. My only complaint is that, while the Renaissance to Revolution volume covers conflicts around the world, the Middle Ages volume only convers Europe.

I don't think porn is great since you'll like it based on its being extreme instead of having a good lesson, but for erotica, I thought the concept of women being tortured by having a man's sex drive, and that making them incompatable with men was pretty cool. It really strikes on the theme that what you want in a moment of desire-a woman who would do anything for your cock- is soon a sickening and even emasculating thing when she's begging for it and you've alreay came. I don't agree with the idea that we're made perfect for eachother naturally- hell, the coolage effect and only temporary test drop from having kids pretty much guarentees we'll always be forced by our bodies to lust after those we cannot have instead of our mates- but I think the story is a strong argument against making big desisions with your dick. Such as your reading choices for example.

Shitlib Twain would have updated his story inline with current liberal bugaboos beyond his crypto-fedora messaging; "An Amerimutt in King Arthur's Court" would have seen a black transwoman go back in time to stop King Arthur from founding Britain as a racist white-supremacist society that oppressed the ltgbmap community.
