Why don't you take a glance at game development? There are a lot of possibilities there for plot writting. Videogames are still in a early stage, there are room enough for improvement. Maybe some of you come with an unique way of story telling.

Does /lit/ think a united human race, a Humanist civilization can be achieved on Earth? It does not matter how but will?

Do think you're better at writing that people that haven't read any books? Do you think a human being wasted their life if they haven't read any books? Do you think a person cannot be smart or educated without having read a book? Do you ever regret reading so many books instead of doing something else?

What are the best books that explore self-confidence? For example, when going out, I doubt there is any situation in which I would get angry, start a fight or something like that. Instead, when faced with stress, I become scared. I'm tired of useless self-help books and motivational quotes, and I'm willing to work on myself. I need a way to do that.

Are the any books that deal with longing to live an impossible life in an impossible universe? And with the depression and agony it brings once you start to realize that you will never truly fulfil your dreams?

do we perceive space in the three dimensions of Euclidean geometry? sure, we can understand non-euclidean geometries like in thinking about the surface of a sphere (e.g. the Earth), but isn't our basic perception of space still in three dimensions? why do things get smaller in the distance? what does this have to do with our perception of space? was Kant right?

What does /lit/ think of the works of Tolkien? My friend tried to explain to me that Tolkien wasn't a very remarkable writer at all and his books don't really have that much of an interesting story. I personally love Middle Earth but I have heard some people complain that the fantasy genre is ruined now. One person told me that "people don't realize how much more diverse, imaginative and sophisticated the fantasy genre was in the first half of the twentieth century. Once Tolkien caught on, the whole genre was taken over by pale ripoffs of LOTR, endlessly extended series with insanely detailed world-building and about three paragraphs worth of plot." I personally think that this demonstrates how good and influential he was. Was Tolkien actually a good writer by /lit/ standards or was he quite overrated and just became really popular?

Hello /lit/, I'm looking for an online version of Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone that is suitably translated for a college paper. I found one that was translated by F. Storr. Do you recommend that one or another?

At the risk of looking like a total philistine, can anyone tell me why one should even bother with "The Republic"? It's so self-serving and logically ridiculous. Take the following excerpt: >And when you want to keep a shield or a lyre, and not to use them, you would say that justice is useful; but when you want to use them, then the art of the soldier or of the musician? >Certainly. >And so of all other things;—justice is useful when they are useless, and useless when they are useful? >That is the inference. >Then justice is not good for much. But let us consider this further point: Is not he who can best strike a blow in a boxing match or in any kind of fighting best able to ward off a blow? >Certainly. >And he who is most skilful in preventing or escaping from a disease is best able to create one? >True. >And he is the best guard of a camp who is best able to steal a march upon the enemy? >Certainly. >Then he who is a good keeper of anything is also a good thief? >That, I suppose, is to be inferred. >Then if the just man is good at keeping money, he is good at stealing it. >That is implied in the argument. Socrates jumps from a crude generalization that justice is only useful when things are not in use (need to be kept secure) to saying it's not good for anything; meanwhile, his partner in dialogue just keeps going, "Yes", or "true", or "certainly", like some nasty puppet who shouldn't even have bothered to come at all.

The Book of Negroes Essay

9 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So I have an essay on the Book of Negroes with given prompts due tomorrow and I haven’t read a word of the book. I've read a couple synopses, but that’s not sufficient enough to write about one of the prompts given. Does anyone want to help me out? Prompts: What is the role of science or technology in society? Does it affect people’s lives positively or negatively? Focus on a man character and examine his or her ability to prevail over adversity Examine the role of various influences in a character’s development Select a character that might be considered evil or immoral. Explain why this character can be considered immoral and explain how the author shapes reader’s responses. Analyze the importance of setting in developing character or theme. I’m not asking anyone to do the essay for me or anything along those lines, I’m just close to failing the course and need a couple of good arguments for a specific prompt to complete the essay. So is anyone willing to help?

I'm school boy, help me!
