WELCOME TO /LIT/, HOME TO LONG-LOST TOME TOTIPOTENTS N DOGEARRED DONG-DUST DOMESDAY-DUMPSTERED MICK FOLEY VOTIVE VOYEVODIN

GENERAL BOARD RULES:

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

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.

54 chapters done. I don't think I can handle the archaic english and passage-tier sentences and boring whaling facts anymore. Should I stick with the book, skip to the last dozen chapters where the action begins or just drop it?

 No.770

>>702
Honest to God, you should stick with it. It's by far the best book I've ever read, and one of the greatest in all of literary history. The feeling that you get upon completing and actually understanding it can't be compared to anything else.

Where am I suppose to be able to find books? Amazon a shit, Barnes & Noble a shit, there ain't shit worth of bookstores around me. I have money and I must spend it on reading. My particular itch is for Bavarian history and non-Roman European history.

>My particular itch is for Bavarian history and non-Roman European history.
There's a ton of public domain history books you get off of the interbuttz for free. Check Project Gutenberg, Archive.org, and Wikisource for stuff you're interested in.

Here, just by typing "Bavaria" into Gutenberg I came up with a biography on King Ludwig II of Bavaria:

Three-four months, five at maximum. If you've been reading more than 5 months I wouldn't recommend trying it.

When I first started reading professionally I chose this as my third book, so I agree with >>733 it remains one of my favourites and if I was locked in a lifetime prison or desert island I would bring it along because every read-through is different. There's even a publication since the 60s that is still going which discusses the book. I also use it to Dan on King and Grisham fags who think they read high-lit.

I wrote this a year or two ago, when internet blood sports was still in full swing, for a literature contest stream Mister Metokur promised but never followed up on. It's pretty embarrassing and hasn't aged well at all but I figured I'd post it here for fun.

A GYPSY NAMED VEE

There once was a little gypsy named Vee
Who had a rather quite strange hobby, you see.
For he would grab any creature that he could take
And swallow them whole as though he were a snake.
He would fill petshop owners so full of rage
As he ate all their animals right out of the cage.

Then one bright morning he ate a small spider alive,
But the spider was miraculously able to survive.
It crawled all around his insides, full of spite,
Until it bit an organ with it's venomous bite
