Whipple cream steamboat brinkling bright, Shine puffs simmers black, tarred and white Borne on the bellowing blackness breaking Shake comes the shivering wake ice caking Space tears slicked wrinkle cuttlefish lacing, Facing her hair slinging stares stingrays tracing slices through shimmering glass like racing faster and faster our heart beats embracing where was her face again footsteps pacing faster her face isnt there something's-wait no erase-no come waste flowing where circling fins cannot drown what I where is the ribbon that I tacked on her not coming back from her never coming slack roping thwack on the dock turning pull into stop tugging, stop tugboat stop

Any recommendations for books like Adorno's Minima Moralia, Pessoa's The Book of Disquiet, or the work of Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, or Cioran? Basically just want more aphoristic lit/phil. You can see the general mood/style I'm going for, but books outside of that realm are fine too. Thanks.

How do I gain strong opinions, in which I could be sure of? I feel indifferent about mostly anything.

How much of any movement is genuine? And how much is groupthink/rebellious nature? Would the atheists of today been believing in a higher power if the the whole world was more or less atheist? >inb4 you are self righteous

There's nothing wrong with Sydney Monas' translation of "Crime and Punishment", right? Would I be wasting my time not reading the P&V translation?
So I'm writing a story... 22 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So I'm writing a story about a factory worker who, through the knowledge of an ancient tome that he cannot read, but later gains a guide to reading it by one of his future foes, and starts a Leninist revolution with a mix of guerrilla warfare, street rioting, organized crime, and Vlad the Impaler levels of cruelty (in fact, impaling will be his favored method of execution once he gets a vanguard party with an armed wing). Needless to say, he's a villain protagonist. I plan on the end result being that he becomes a Stalin figure in his world, with 1/2-3/4 of the population of the country he "liberates" being impaled around the ruins of the capital city. Obviously, he's going to have to be very competent to be able to do this, especially from the station he was born into, so having him become a Gary Stu is a legitimate threat. So, /lit/ I will let you ask any question about my villain protagonist and the universe he's written into. This will help us determine whether or not I need to re-think this character, and will also help me brainstorm for development.

Was this supposed to be sad?... 9 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Was this supposed to be sad? For whatever reason I found this to be incredibly depressing, though also hopeful. It seemed to me to be saying that human life is full of contradictions and insanity, and while we may think that makes us animate, it simply isn't true. There is no animate and there is no inanimate there is only the simple and the complex, the world is all and that is the case. The only thing we can really hope to do to make sense of it all is to just live in it , and love. There is no hope for sanity, as the very act of life is insane.

I guess this is the best place to ask, but are there any good, dense theory arguments to make in policy debate? I made a phenomenology argument last debate tournament in my college league, and it won me 8th seed. People will be blocking that out next week in the elimination rounds (of 32 teams) and I need something that nobody can argue against.

One of the best history books I've read. Took me around a year to get through all of it, but it really does a good job of making an objective account of Prussia as it existed and did an excellent job of illuminating the postwar years of Prussia's existence. Highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in German history or culture.

Any thoughts on James Ellroy's detective novels? I'm a casual fan of this genre but I must admit I put off reading books far too long. Hell I've been reading one for a year and a half. But anyways, would you guys say his quartet is worth the read?

How did you all get into writing? Other than just write, write, write, are there any good books or guides on how to become a competent writer? What are your favorite guides on how to writing a novel, for example?

Just picked up Crime and Punishment from the library. They had a few copies but I went with the only one with binding that wasn't falling apart. Also, it has much bigger and nicer pages than the other ones did. The problem is that it's the Jessie Coulson translation and I've heard Garnett or Pevear/Volokhonsky are the best. Will Coulson's translation suffice or should I return it and put up with the shitty quality of one of the other copies? I want to get the best experience out of this so short changing myself with a shitty translation is not something I want to do. Thanks for your insight.
