i'm tired of seeing the word cuck on 4chan, in literature, and in life. Everywhere I am, cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo. I feel like Leopold Bloom only I shouldn't because i'm in a confident relationship. Too bad I can't go a day without seeing or thinking about cuck, cuck, cuck. Anything I read has a cuckold. Anna Karenina, Ulysses, Homer, fucking MARTIAL, Ovid, DeLillo, Hemingway, Steinbeck, the comments about Aurelius, Proust, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, Cervantes... I wouldn't be surprised if by re-reading the Divine Cuckedy i would find something (Beatrice fucked Virgil didn't she?). She fucked Virgil and cucked Dante. Fuck and cuck. Cuck, cuck, cuckoo. And don't even get me fucking STARTED on Shakespeare. Literally every play has at least a line mentioning the cuckold's horns one way or another (oh I marked them). Please somebody cleanse me of this mind virus. Thank God i'm at least half as manly enough as Petruchio or any Shakespeare hero or how Martial or Socrates or Aristotle or Epictetus or Sam Hyde would aspire to be, or else I would probably end up blowing my brains out.

Really? Because you have some shit poster going on about how he's changed the board consciousness. Whether they push pizza man memes or whore memes they are pushing them just to see if they catch on.
Pynchon, anyone? DFW? No one gives a fuck but the guy pushing the memes. Lit lets this happen because none of you have read this and know if it's any good.
This place is the blind leading the naked. Nothing learned, nothing gained. Except maybe SFFG, which is spoilery.
Your top 100 lists look like meme jokes. No one coming in at this point in time takes this board seriously. Maybe some oldsters can see through all the BS from repetition, but to the tourist this is a shitty stall best avoided. You've shit up your nest for too long, Shitbirds.

the point is shitposters are pushing memes just to push and no one knows or maybe cares.
If Lit had any agreement it would let shit threads die without comment. As it is, people pile on to shit threads without saging. Perhaps because reading is individual or the bait is just too tempting
Once upon a time I looked at Lit and felt it was over my head. Few threads on quality subjects. Now there's so much bs I often feel it is beneath me or a waste of time, since the laughs are few. All that transpired over, maybe, ten years?
My impression of [s4s] was that they aspired to have a meme catch on, and forced memes were easy to spot.
It's easier to force memes here because lit doesn't seem to have good memes to begin with. Even the rabbit has faded.
Lit doesn't image much for being on an image board. Tends to like author pics as a form of elitism. But book covers are better meme material and more pleasant to view in catalog.

Are we STILL acting like the word nigger is funny just for the sake of being edgy? I'm not opposed to the word itself, but saying it and acting like it's inherently hilarious just because it's offensive/anti-PC reeks of low-brow humor and a lack of self-awareness. These same jokes were being made over a decade ago on 4chan, and decades before that on IRC or in the real world. It's old and unoriginal.

If you're going to make nigger jokes, at least make them be original instead of just spamming the world all over the place.

Not claiming le old fag, claiming tourist.
Hoped to elevate above Goodreads tier , but can't see through your shitposters. Took me months to realize some of you take Pynchon seriously, still not sure about DFW. I've not found the commentaries compelling enough to override my backlog.
Can't take the Greeks seriously, not enough time left on the planet, by my estimates. Read Republic just to reassure myself. It's much like this board, some of it is clearly wrong, so why dwell on the hard stuff?
If you could only hope to read six hundred books in the time remaining, will it be Greeks and Philosopher s? Not me.
Maybe you are content old farting with each other and nothing else is required, but I'd think it would get dull after awhile. On the other hand, it seems any shitposter with a folder full of memes can change the direction of your board. Just an impression, can't really say. Maybe reading is so individual that no consensus can be had, regardless of the board or digital format.
Maybe I just have pleb tastes and should move on. One appeal is- this board isn't hyper sexualized- image wise.
Sure some of you care, but if so, many of you are clearly wrong. Moby Dick and Catcher in the Rye are not even top one thousand tier novels, one need only read a few chapters to know this. I'm guessing Joyce is a time waster for most, in terms of enjoyment.
Maybe you have no agreed upon marker or criteria,
and that makes your board narrative laughable. How about truth, beauty, and enjoyment?
Saying something is good or shit isn't useful without qualifiers. Saying something is well written is only useful to other writers. Hemingway might seem well written to some, but only when forgiven its age. To a modern reader it is a historical footnote snooze fest at best. The Beats have been subsumed by culture, being gay and edgy is common.
If I haven't figured it out by now, it's probably time to move on. Thanks for the laughs, Patricians.

Doesn't Queequeg or some other early point of view character die like three chapters in? Doesn't the POV then switch? Technical error one.

Moby-Dick can't compete with its contemporaries unless you forgive it's age.
Please forgive my example If I'm wrong, but someone else can supply the name.

If the primary goal is communicate clearly, in the Strunk & White sense of things, MD fails. Second, if the goal is to get new readers to finish the book, MD fails. It only survives because of reputation-- and money rent grabbing by publishers.

In the modern technical writing sense Moby-Dick is a waste of time. I could say the same of "Heart of Darkness"--murky POV that switches--hard for a modern reader to finish.

>> No.10272934

I think Heart of Darkness is a "good" book, but it's barely readable by Pleb standards--because it isn't easy to understand. Same with Dune.

Lit seems to evaluate things on the Patrician tier. This is fine for T. Pat Reader, but anyone who wishes to be published must consider the audience, which gets more Plebian by the minute.

It's in first person in the early chapters then once Ishmael is a part of the crew it's mostly 3rd person since he mostly narrates the actions of others, although I think it's still technically first person
It returns to normal at the very end

I'm fairly certain this was intentional, also no characters die that early in the book

Fahrenheit 451, still relevant sixty years later. Emotional experience, makes a lasting impression, easy to understand, likely to be finished. Most of the passages stand on their own, even lacking context.

Most passages cannot be understood without context.

one thousand is a big number. and i cant grasp how any standards would leave it out of the top 50, unless by "modern standards" you mean short attention spans and easy to digest.

but everybody likes something different, we cant expect everyone to like what /lit/ pushes. I liked Fahrenheit 451 as well

Hemingway is known for his dialogue and creating the modern novel, but by modern standards his dialogue is forced and unbelievable. Don't believe me? Go to Goodreads and see the bitching.
"I love you."
"And I love you."
"Kiss me."
"No you fool."
"But Honey-Boo-Boo. . . "

By today's standard: forced, stilted, and cliche, sexting for the Lost Generation.

wrong. if you listened to Peterson's lectures on Solzhenitsyn, you'd know how their main subject is mind control and totalitarianism, which Peterson then compares to neo-marxist XX century philosophers that are also into that stuff: academic, pop culture based attempts at indoctrination, enslavement, and mind control.
