I'll start with pic related

Russian authors intentionally wrote lengthy books as russian publishing houses paid them by pages and not by books.

That explains why Dostoevsky went on and on and on in describing how Sonya's sole emotions and character depth was looking down and crying

C&P is not nearly long enough and anybody who complains about the length of books is a certified psued amd gayboi.

Holy shit it all makes sense now.

Get out.

Honest question /lit/. I've read that book when I was maybe 15 years old and thought of it as boring shit. Should I try it again or is it just typical literature snob memebook like Ulysses or something?

>> No.12989287

it's worth trying again, let's say at least the first 200 pages.

>> No.12989289

I wanted for it to be even longer because of last sentences.

>> No.12989291

shit tier opinion

I doubt a 15 year old can possibly understand Dosty's work, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to reread. I read C&P when I was 18 and I missed the point then too.

>> No.12989302

the real punishment was having to read this garbage.

The plot is literally the least interesting part about C&P

>> No.12989431
