1. Global rules relating to illegal/board-jeopardizing content are enforced.
2. Slander/libel Dwayne "Wanton Waylaid Bercesure-Jobber Names" "The Rock" Johnson at ur own peril.
3. As much as possible keep discussion related to literature or its creation/critique. Philosophy threads should preferably pertain to a direct written source (this definition's flexible in anticipation of wat ppl like 2 use these boards 4), branching out accordingly. /lit/ boards regularly serve as catch-awls for "social science" discussion, which suffices in moderation but doesn't excuse eschewing conversation about the board's chosen topic + its baseline medium (writtan + reedan).
4. Poasts awn this board are occasionally harvested foar submissions ean2 the board magazine, The /lit/tyzen's Feuilleton - if you do not desire your poasts 2 evur find their waie ean2 the feuilleton, please note in the subject phield oar body "NF".

This will serve as holding grounds for collective /lit/izens blasted to the four winds after the kunpocalypse to regroup or form a new home. Once metrics justify attempt @ consensus I will post stickied meta thread evaluating what the community wants the board to focus on and we'll proceed from there.

/lit/ will inevitably (and hopefully) remain a slow board, so post appropriately & enjoy your stay.

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.

…is language more universal or art or engineering?

seems like there isnt much money to be make with just language alone.


In the grand scheme of things, has an engineer ever made that much?
Moreover, George Lincoln Rockwell said that great artists have great endeavours outside of their art because they can visualize otherwise. So if all three have artistic merit all three have the power to lead the fourth Reich ok?


None of this makes any sense.

That's when a naked Arnold Schwarzenigger teleported in from the future with his warning for Uncle Doctor Ted.




"Arnold, Arndolnald, Arlan. Tsk, tsk tsk," went the moist lips of Uncle Ted, "it's too late for your kind, King Lordna, and there's a change in the winds. Soon, it will be time and we will come to power, me and my furry friends. Your mexican housewives cannot compete."
Theodore finishes this statement with a nod and a wink, and quietly lets his bowels release beneath him.



Ted gleefully ripped one in the Austrian's faggot face. The sheer force of Ted's brap was enough to expunge a gassy ooze that poured over Arnold.

I used to know the answer to this but stopped caring once it seemed like he shilled for the 9/11 narrative.


I think he wrote something good about aesthetics


I'm starting to remember.
He talked about simulations right? Simulacra
It's fuzzy, but maybe I can find my old books.

How am I supposed to get passed the opening chapters where he shares a bed with a nigger
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


Until very recently in history, most people had to share beds on ships and at hotels unless they were rich enough to afford their own private room. It wasn't seen as sexual back then unless it was just one man and one woman sharing a bed. Especially in the 19th century when even sitting in your bro's lap or holding his hand wasn't seen as gay. It was a better time.


So you're saying the nigger wasn't given a pile of hay in storage locker or somewhere


No. If you put a nigger on a pile of hay he might start eating it.


He never relaxes though. He spends an entire chapter describing his fear of the nigger. I got bored about halfway through the book, and I was reading it on the clock at work. I wouldn't suggest this garbage, there is much better literature available like Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.


Flip the page, booklet.

>be me
>submit a short story to an anthology
>their faq says to wait 12 weeks before querying on the status of submissions
>6 months go by
>still don't have that sweet sweet rejection letter
>decide I'm going to shoot them an e-mail and ask about it
>start writing my query
>go back to the original submission e-mail to get the date I sent it on
>actually read what I wrote in the original e-mail:
<"I hope you don't mind that there are also a small number of small images"
>stop writing query
>close out of e-mail
Best case scenario they just go ahead and publish the anthology without ever having noticed my submission.


Here is a short poem I wrote about fags with herpes:

their firey passions beseech,
the raisin cake of pure bleach,
thus upon themselves they bring,
a poke which causes them sting,
and the righteous furies of yore,
make them mighty sore,
for in their holes now bores,
a pus-filled boil that gores,
and could not hurt them more.
so the raisin cake of pure bleach,
is no longer the sight they seek,
for they can't even take a seat.


After a three and a half month spell of basically nothing I finally had a usable fucking idea for a short story the other day. Just sent out the manuscript today, feels good man.

"Literature"? What are you, gay? We'll have none of that nonsense in this thread. Come and talk about stories about cool things for men.
>nuuuuh, but my poetry
I will literally beat you up.

What are your favourite books? Who are your favourite writers? What are you reading now? What do you plan on reading, but have not yet gotten around to?

Just to interject, all of those games are ten to twenty years old at this point, and the hyper masculine video game hero with no strings attached, isn't even that common anymore.


>cyberpunk was terrible


Just going to bump this thread to say I have been reading the Deathworld series by Harry Harrison lately, which I happened upon by luck. Very enjoyable if you're looking for some 60's pulp with a Captain Kirkesque womanising hero, and perhaps some subtly based themes.
They do one of my favourite things in the science fiction genre, which is to look into the ways that environment and culture can shape people. Think Frank Herbert, but less lofty and with more wit.

I like Dragonlance. I haven't read it since I was about 13 or something like that, and I can hardly remember most of what happened in it, but I remember it being very engaging for my teenage mind. It does unfortunately contain Kender, however. Good high fantasy, though I think it's got something of a negative reputation in some circles. I know a lot of atheist neckbeards reviled the book for its focus on the religiosity of some characters.
Of the Discworld books I've read, I enjoyed most of them, though it's also been a few years since I touched them. The most recent one I read had Vampires in it. Good book. I also liked the one with the idiot savant travelling with the much diminished avatar of his god.
I'm finding that most of the fantasy stuff I read, I read while I was much younger. On that point, I read Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy just before I read Dragonlance. Must have been around 12 or something like that, but it gripped me. I especially liked what Lord Asriel does at the end of the book. A lot of Christians didn't like the series because of how the books depict what is essentially the fantasyland Catholic Church, and also how the heavenly court behaves.


>he one with the idiot savant travelling with the much diminished avatar of his god.
Small Gods, right? I remember liking that one a lot. I have a bunch of Pratchett books I've amassed over the years. Ought to read them, really.
