After dropping this board for r/literature, I find myself coming back more and more for what appears to be:
- Better quality of discussion
- Willingness to post different opinions and not vituperate the other opinion
- Meet-ups (what the fuck?)

Is the dethroning of DFW's Infinite Jest from our #1 spot the reason for this rebirth?

>> No.10295376

Also, rip the /lit/ trilogy of Gravity's Rainbow, Infinite Jest, and 2666

>> No.10295383

Wtf Its worse than ever. All anyone seems to read is entry level as fuck.

This mindset is the same as Japanese that complain about late trains, the complaining purifies and serves its function, but is relatively inaccurate

DfW has been replaced by Petersonposting. Thats why you feel at home here redditor.

This place is worse than ever. A bunch of humanitiesfags posturing over the same few books and liking everything academia and publishing tells them to. lit perfectly resembles the constipated nature of literature as a whole

>> No.10296581

Yeah, except /lit/ is more similar to Indian trains.

>the dethroning of DFW's Infinite Jest from our #1 spot

Philosophy threads have to go somewhere, and /his/ became a watered down /pol/ after the first year it was made

It has nothing to do with IJ. It's because, just as in the Renaissance, we decided to start reading the classics again:
