Is half of lit fucking retarded? Half of what's on the top 100 chart is kindergarden shit like Camus and Salinger. The only good stuff on the chart is Ulysses, because if you're anything more than a fucking baby you can read it. Fuck this illiterate world.

Indeed, most of /lit's recommendations seem to come from high school and college freshman/sophomore reading lists. And then stops there.

I find it hard to believe someone who is well read hasn't already come to terms with the solitude that comes with heavy reading, or the almost inherently quiet nature of the activity.

Why would someone who reads a lot need to talk about their reading? Just write about it instead if you have something to say. Read more if you have questions to ask.

It's great luck and a blessing to run into others who are searching out the same paths, but you're on your own ultimately.

pseuds like you should be shot

classics are revered precisely because they come from a time that is inherently not graspable. that's basically why borges said he preferred the classics, because everyone contemporary to him he felt was like him ie he understood them
