Why are the lyrics of this rock record so acclaimed? I've heard that it's one of the first rock albums to actually feature some decent poetry, but it seems pretty mediocre to me

If Napoleon didn't invade Russia, and decided to just chill out a bit, would it have been likely he could have maintained peace from that point onwards without conceding any of the land he had captured up until that point? Or would the rest of Europe have consolidated their forces and immediately turned on him a bit down the track?

How do you learn the correct way to write, and write fiction in general? Hopefully I do not pass off as an annoying anon, but I'd really like to know how to write engaging or even just readable narrative pieces, and while there are tons of different resources on the internet I find still kind of hard to find the right way to go about writing. There's the building inherent to the fiction itself, the rules to go about writing... What should I do /lit/? Is there a trustable and grindable resource out there where I can fine my skills - obviously not meaning schools and the like - ? I want to unpleb myself ;_;

Fantasy and Sci Fi general #1 Will this work? edition

26 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So let's try this out. A general for fantasy and sci fi genre litterature. What are you currently reading? Recommendations? What 2014 books do you think should make the 2015 Hugo and Nebula nominee list? What books are you eagerly awaiting? What's on your to read list? I just finished the book of the new sun by Wolfe and it was hands down one of the best series of books I've ever read. I'm looking to read something a bit less complex before I start Urth of the new sun though. To the people who aren't intrested in fantasy/sci fi, please stay out of this thread and be thankful that we try to contain this to one thread instead of shitting up the rest of the catalogue with multiple threads for respective books/series.

After yesterday's humongous green text thread, I asked my publisher friend if he could publish an anonymous anthology of greentext. He said he would do it, so if its something people were seriously interested in putting together, this could feasibly happen. He said we can put it together in a zine format and if anyone wants to order a copy we can just charge cost and shipping. Considering that the literary format is so structured, this could even become a bi-monthly kind of thing if people were into the idea. We could collect and curate anonymous submissions, distributing copies as we see fit. I think it's a neat alternative (is TAR even a thing anymore?) and could be a fun project now that /lit/'s own magnum opus is complete.

how do you guys feel about the idea of Fichte/Schelling's idea of 'universal consciousness', a common sentiment that runs through the people of a society, and Spengler's idea of civilizations sharing similar traits/worldviews (as well as life-cycles). can a man ever be more than just a product of his time? and are we, as western civilization, in our death throes? agree/disagre?

Greek Philosophy

I want to go neck deep in Greek Philosophy. What attracts me especially is Stoicism, but I don't plan on stopping here. What do you guys think I should get started with? I have absolutely no basic knowledge of philosophy, be it modern or ancient.

Where do I start with Joyce? Dubliner or APotAaaYM? I want to eventually make it to Ulysses and then Finnegans Wake, but I've got quite the way to go before that (english is not even my native language.) I actually tried to read Finnegans Wake with the help of this website, and while I found it interesting and the language beautiful, it is tedious if you are not really used to it. www.finwake.com

Using the English language, what's the best possible compliment you can think of saying? Imagine it's to the woman of your dreams.

I'm looking for books where the main character is passive and some other elements of the story/charactes/events lead him to be excluded from society. Hard to explain when english isn't my best language. Like Kafka: The Trial or Krleža: On The Edge of Reason,
