Bros, need a good military book for a friend. Not some propaganda bullshit, just something that would make sense to him. He was in a line of humvees that were RPGd in Iraq, he was the only survivor of 7 men. He saw the body parts of his newly adopted family of men, (some of whom watched eachs others backs for multiple deployments already) strewn around him on the ground as he struggled to pull himself to his feet and eventually recover. Hes become very depressed being back home, I need a book about something similar to his situation maybe.

I finally got around the reading The Stranger and I was incredibly underwhelmed. I really liked Camus in Myth of Sisyphus, why was this work so unprofound? What did the rest of /lit/ get out of it?

Recently rediscovered interview with DFW from 1996: http://electricliterature.com/audio-rare-david-foster-wallace-interview-unearthed/ What do you think? Do you like how he parries the biographical questions?

In regards to "maximalism" Can I write a thousand or so pages of marginally related stories based loosely on the same topic, then flip them out of order, doodle in the margins a bit and pretend it's some profound social commentary to get published and make mad money?

Judith got her mole removed, Deleuze had long fingernails, Althusser's eye-sockets were so craterous that you could eat cereal out of them.. Why are continental philosophers so weird?

This chart is fucking bullshit. Who/what would you put on a /lit/ poetry essentials chart?

Did most Roman emperors/ancient leaders really look like that? Appear to be as depicted in busts and whatnot? I always assumed that a number of them were pretty narcissistic like Caius Julius, Augustus, and Commodus. Is there any work of literature that actually describes them all as they really appeared? It seems to me that a lot of the shit written about them during their lifetime was pretty biased. >Tfw you don't know what to believe anymore. >Tl,dr: Was Augustus really all that attractive? Were any of them really as they appeared in busts/paintings?

Can anyone explain the appeal of stoicism to me? I mean living without emotions, where's the fun in that?

how can I learn to write? Is there any set of exercises like when musicians practice the scales? I just don't buy the argument that you only need to write during 20 years and you magically become shakespeare. It doesn't make sense taking into account how people learn drawing, painting, music, programming and any skill.

That feel when you were born too late to preach your crazy beliefs that Jesus Christ and God are the same person, God just tricked Mary and was testing humanity to see how we would all cope in the presence of his kind and after we crucified him God spent three days lamentation over the fate of the human race and decided to strip us of miracles, everything would be for ourselves once returned to Heaven and made himself an impersonal God rather than a personal God. I wonder what my punishment would've been for these wild ideas.

/lit/, just graduated from uni and now ill have about a year to work, read, and write. Trying to create my reading list. I want to start with the early myths and then move forward, reading as much as the big works as I can given the amount of time. What would you recommend, specifically, for the Greek myths? The /lit/ rec has little to nothing on it.
