I've been told by teachers I have good composition and good at stringing together sentences, but I have no ideas. What do you want to read about /lit/? give me some ideas for a short story

>> No.16917658

idea: you fuck a big titty bitch, then her bigger titty sister, then their big pendulous titty mom, all while trying desperately to preserve your chastity

Hi anons. I am looking for a MEGA folder that had many books in different categories, specifically, one with a lot of books about learning to draw.

Can you help me?

Yep anon, your lack of IQ and experience will definitely be compensated for by reading a bunch of words and not understanding their meaning. Good luck!

Previous thread: https://boards.4channel.org/lit/thread/16912593/lit-quarterly#bottom_r

Good morning.

I had meant to tend the last thread, but I went astray for the evening. I will make an effort every now and again to post a thread, so that unaware anons can be made aware of the quarterly's existence.

The purpose of this thread is simply for discussion. If you have read the quarterly, share your thoughts on the pieces. Moreover, if you haven't submitted a story, give it a try. Anons bemoaned the lack of /lit/izens in the recent edition. It seems to me this can only be rectified if you write something meritorious.

I should clarify that I am not KMD. If he is about, he will respond. Most questions you might have can be answered here: http://litquarterly.ca/

Hey I don't know if there are any Dutchfags on /lit/ but I am one, and I wanted to discuss Multatuli's Max Havelaar (of de koffieveiling der Nederlandsche Handel-Maatschappij).

Have you read the most iconic work in Dutch /lit/? I am currently reading it and I am two thirds through. I have to say that it is a bit boring sometimes, but I do like the parts that Droogstoppel wrote and the parts where the writer directly speaks. Droogstoppel is the most based character of the novel. I even think that it is very postmodern. And why is it that Multatuli is one of the few Dutch authors of the 19th century that's still read spontaneously? Also I didn't have to read it in highschool, that's why I'm reading it now. Did you have to read it in highschool?

Is this book read by non-Dutchfags as well?

Abridged is ok if you have a hard time finishing books, but the original is far superior. The unabridged version is personally one of my favorite books. I'd say it checks all your boxes; you could also try Scaramouche by Sabatini for something similar if you like it.

Is entertainment a worthy purpose for literature, or should literature always aspire to higher ends like the instructional (how we should behave- moral or religious teaching, communism, wokeness, social activism), or the educational (in the driest possible sense, such as transferring knowledge and skills efficiently)?

Entertainment is very much a worthy purpose for literature. There are even those who find entertainment in instructional and educational books.

None of the above. Literature, as a form of art, must act as the vehicle of the divine. Pure aesthetic experience is its only worthy purpose.
