Reminder that the Bible teaches that effeminacy is the cause of all sin.
The reason mankind fell was because Adam was a soi cuck who could not control his wife. This is symbolic of the fact that male effeminacy is the root of all evil.
If you are a Christian man and your wife does not submit to you as readily as a slave (except if you command her to do something immoral), you are not following Christ.
Unless compelled by necessity, your wife should never work outside the home or leave without your permission or accompaniment.

Book of Kings
>And Asa did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, as did David his father: he drove the effeminate out of the land.

Council of Trent
>The wife should love to remain at home, unless compelled by necessity to go out; and she should never presume to leave home without her husband's consent.

>All classes must be deemed to have their special attributes. As the poet says of women, "Silence is a woman's glory." But this is not equally the glory of man.

St. Paul
>Let women be subject to their husbands, as to the Lord: Because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the church.
>For the man was not created for the woman, but the woman for the man.
>But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to use authority over the man: but to be in silence.
>[Young women should be] be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Pope Pius XI
>More than this, this false liberty and unnatural equality with the husband is to the detriment of the woman herself...

St. Thomas Aquinas
>Good order would have been wanting in the human family if some were not governed by others wiser than themselves. So by such a kind of subjection woman is naturally subject to man, because in man the discretion of reason predominates.
>The wife can be corrected for her sin of fornication not only by this punishment but also by words and blows.

Is it a well accepted thing amongst litirists that ishmael is autistic? Ahab is barely in it and queequeg basically does nothing after the first 100 pages. The whole book is him rambling about how whales are the best thing ever. It reads exactly like an autistic rant, I wonder if someone has calculated how much shorter the book would be if you cut out all the chapters that are solely about whaling

Yep, and it's a false promise. God commands us to Virtue because Virtue is freeing. Whoever sins is a slave to sin. That slut on the Satanic altar, however enticing she may seem, is a symbol of slavery. God wishes to free you from slavery, but man loves his own chains.

So there is a year 0?

>> No.22088339

No you're right the first decade of the first century only had 9 years.

>> No.22088353

IIRC they used to use ordinal numbers for calendars, so there was no year 0. Then again, modern astronomy has demonstrated that it's all a few years out anyway (you can calculate the years that comets passed Earth, and therefore when it would have been possible for 3 wise men to be lead by a wandering star). Also all the old calendars were slightly out of sync with Earth's orbit, which is why we now have a system of skipping 3 leap years in every 4 centuries.

>> No.22088354

Decades only start on the 0 when context suggests so, as in counting a decade from a certain date otherwise we go by calendar decades. The new decade starts a 1, the decade of the 80s starts at zero. The first decade of the first century had 10 years or it would not be a decade, this strictly refers to a calendar decade since no context is provided as to when we should start counting that decade. The first decade of your life is not the 00s or what ever, it is the first 10 years of your life and starts counting from the year of your birth. So the answer to OP is 2001 because he provided no context beyond calendar time.

A decade is always 10 years.

It's about how negative emotions over events can carry far into the future and have long lasting repercussions. James really wanted to go to the lighthouse with his family, but was rudely denied by his father who thought it would be a bad day for it. They end up not being able to go, and they don't get the opportunity to come back until a decade later after his mother and one of his brothers has died. He holds a lot of negative emotions towards his father due to how he was treated as a child, despite the fact that he desperately wants to love his father and be recognized. Their relationship is awful because of relatively small things that leave large impacts. Then you have Lily painting, who is basically just Woolf herself musing over her artistic/writing process. Mr. Ramsey also shows how one can struggle to not feel alone and properly communicate even when surrounded by people who love you. It's not a very difficult novel, and is one of Woolf's most auto-biographical, since the setting is based on her family's vacation home in Scotland, and the characters are based on family members.

It's impossible for me to not finish a Woolf novel in a couple days anyways, since her writing flows so well. I pick her books up and before I know it I've already read half of it and can't put it down

Omensetter's Luck

>> No.22088383

Well the point I'm sort of making is that his fiction and non-fiction overlap in virtually everything he does - and the more you read him, the less you begin to differentiate between any medium, and it is just Gass writing a bunch of Gassean shit. Which is why The Tunnel is better off come to last because it will cease to matter to you by the time you know and love Gass. But if you don't it's fine. I'm just saying. You're right but it doesn't matter.

>> No.22088403

I am starting to question your having read him/your comprehension possibly just not having read his nonfiction. It has nothing to do with the overlap of idea, it is that it is 1:1, Kohler is an academic and just about quotes Gass at times and it does not even seem to be used as a way to provide a new and external perspective through metafiction, it is just the thinnest of the thinly veiled. I would have enjoyed The Tunnel much more if I had never read his nonfiction.

Your spamming the board with zero effort threads also does not instill confidence.

>> No.22088410

You’re not a fan of “read __” as an elaboration? Don’t you know where you are? Chart readers are the worst. That phase this board went through like 4-5 years ago was frustrating. I got the impression that many anons didn’t actually read, they just liked making charts

>> No.22088422

>Kohler is an academic and just about quotes Gass at times and it does not even seem to be used as a way to provide a new and external perspective through metafiction.
Yes I know I'm saying I just don't care about that. Not sure why you are taking a tone with me.

>> No.22088432

I was not looking for elaboration, I was looking for discussion. I don't think OP has read Gass, just is relying on so few here having read him that he can get away with acting like he has. But he did correct my error of "Petersen" and did not make a thing about correcting me so I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I offered two works of fiction and a fairly open ended offer on the nonfiction and neither were taken.

At best OP is just fishing for things he can repeat to sound smart.
>Not sure why you are taking a tone with me
I can't really speak without tone, even if I go out of my way to remove all affect and inflection people will see a tone. But I already explained this, because you have not engaged with anything I have said, you talk around it and really just say "I am great because I got it and you want to be like me right so just read everything else he wrote and reread X so you can be like me and get it."

You have to do more than this if you want me to give you a handjob.
