Slice of life novels

14 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi /lit/ I'm looking for some novels that capture the quiet mundanity of life like the films of Yasujir? Ozu and Eric Rohmer I've tried Henry James, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy, and Jane Austen. Hardy came closest but he Tess and Jude the Obscure were a little too heavy-handed for my tastes,

Sup /lit/ I know this really isn't the sort of thing you lot are normally into doing but I could really use a bit of help with an assignment for my english course that my professor has assigned. We're supposed to "Compare/contrast Arnold Friend in "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" with the real-life criminal (Charles Schmid) upon whom Joyce Carol Oates based Arnold." The easy part was comparing the two, there's a ton of ways the two are similar, but I'm having a good bit of trouble figuring out how to contrast the two. I'd really appreciate any assistance you lot might be willing to give

Why is wrong to use women? I'm reading this review and I just don't see how it is wrong. Sometimes you just have to get the poison out. http://www.lithitchhiker.com/2013/06/review-on-road-by-jack-kerouac.html

Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County

Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha... 5 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi /lit/. I am running a survey about Faulkner's work and how it relates to the real American South. (optional) 1. Do you live in the American South / Do your parents come from the American South. 2. How well read are you in Faulkner's literature? (Big Questions) 3. Do you think Faulkner uses Yoknapatawpha County as a microcosm for the entire American South? 4. Do you think Faulkner intended to skew Yoknapatawpha County in any direction from truth in order to exaggerate an issue he had with the people and conventions of his home region? 5. What do you think this reveals about his position about issues in the south such as racism and intellectual decay?

Art References

Art References 0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Ok /lit/ I have this essay topic floating around my head and want some other examples to support my thesis. What are some works of art that rely on a previously established work of art to support or create a main theme? Is the reference a crutch? Example: American Psycho constantly mentions Les Mis to draw a connection between Jean ValJean's identity crisis with Bateman's.

Life Affirming Philosophers 58 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I see plenty of pessimism, nihilism and antinatalism threads on /lit/ nowadays. Can we get a optimism thread going? What are your favorite life affirming philosophers or those who present the most convincing arguments against nihilism? I want to read some philosophy that will lift my mood.

http://youtu.be/oEydyM1yacw?t=6m1s This girl is saying no longer reading YA fiction is insulting when you say you have matured out of it. But isn't the content, that which focuses on the lives of high schoolers, a bit indicative of your maturity if you most strongly connect and relate to 15 year olds? full gifset here http://books-wrote-my-story.tumblr.com/post/85090985116/someone-can-say-that-they-dont-really-enjoy-ya

Hello, lowly anons. I am « ???????? », janitor, moderator, and sovereign queen of this board. I insist—nay, demand— that upon reading this you spurn all of your former trifling idols: the Christian "God," your manifold degenerate philosophers, Deep&Edgy, etc., and genuflect, propitiate, and penetrate, I, « ???????? », Epicurus, Richard Dawkins, Gore Vidal, and, of course Feminister (peace be upon her). Know that we are your true saviors and know all the secrets of your hearts (and your IP, EvolaKid, I'm sending hundreds of pizzas to you shitbox apartment right now, the first of seven plagues ). Consider this an inquisition, an auto-da-fé. Declare your undying love and devotion to the infinite grace of the pentumvirate or enjoy your b&
