Looking for literature on murder. Literature of any kind be it novels, philosophy, psychology or the mythical aspect of murder. Also interested in reading about how people change after having committed one. If it is a novel about a murder then I'd prefer reading about a more 'respectable ' murder. So not a child/wife/serial killer or disgusting stuff (victim must be a man). I know it's hard to think of higher or purer murder motives. Perhaps something like someone who is entangled in a deep beef (for the lack of a better word) with another individual?. Again I admit to find a higher murder motive. But I'm Interested in the concept of a 'pure' murder. Mystical is a self interpretation. One time I wrote the following on /x/ (only time I posted or lurked there): The very word makes people icey, uncomfortable and scared. People never want to discuss murder. It's so extremely alien, so extremely far from our everyday lives. It is so far gone from our world experience. Most people want to stay as far as possible from this act and they perceive a discussion as being drawn closer from this world they so want to avoid. Hence they perceive sole discussion of murder as a threat to their personal security, which is why it creeps them out so much. If we think murder we think about shady worlds that are extremely distant from us. That whole murder world. Now I'm not talking about just killing another person. Like I wouldn't consider a guy killing his wife as murder or some disgusting individual killing a person as murder. I see murder actually as a more clean thing. Like murder being the pure form of killing. Murder is the most furthest and hardest possible part of the underworld. Only certain individuals are clean and pure enough and have a clean enough mind to actually murder. If you are not this pure and clean you are just a killer. For instance if you kill a child or if kill because of some perverse or low motivation like lust or money you are just a disgusting animalistic killer. A murderer must be a man (not women) who is clean in his mind at least before the murder, and hasn't been touched by unclean things like petty crime as theft or drug use. A murder is when for instance a guy has a very deep beef with somebody and decides to pop him for pure reasons such as revenge. It is only murder when the victim is a man but not some very low life individual. Because that would be beneith worthy of committing the gravest and deepest of all human acts possible. The deepest you can possible go in the forest. That is why I attach this mythical stigma to murder. If /lit/ has some literature in this trend it would be very much appreciated.
The remaining living species,... 14 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
The remaining living species, having realized that the universe will not last much longer, get together and decide to start producing a machine which can create a new universe from the last remnants of ours so that life can continue after they're gone. It's decided that the machine should not only create the new universe but also govern its inhabitants, guiding them so that they will hopefully end up able to create a new machine of their own (the one produced at the end of our time will not last through the end of theirs) and continue the cycle. Each species brings one god or one culture's gods (e.g. the Olympians) from their ancient cultures to the table, and the new machine will be made to behave and govern for a time with aspects of those in mind (the reasoning being that the species who at some point believed in these and followed their rule survived to the end and had the capacity to take control, survive, and end up creating the machine themselves.) Assuming only religions which were developed before today will be considered, which should humanity propose as the "model god?"

Despite the fact that /lit/ seems to be predominantly left-wing, you people seem cynical about partisan politics and I rarely see anybody praising an actual politician on political threads. Do you vote at all? Is there any party in your country that reflects your beliefs well, and if there is, which one is it?

Translation question

Translation question 2 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Are the Constance Garnett translations of Dostoevsky any good? I hear pevear and volokhonsky are the prized pigs of Russian translation, but I already own the Garnett one and don't really wanna pay 15 bucks for the same book twice. So is her version good enough to read or is there a drastic qualitative difference?
