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?

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

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

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