Are they legit /lit/? I've been reading alot more graphic novels as of late, and they're alot quicker reads, but if good, equally as deep as literature can be. What you think? Are graphic novels a part of /lit/ or are they just comics?

While we're on this subject, genre is a good way to categorize books, but it also limits how dynamic a book can be with multiple genres and grappling with tons of ideas, but has to be labelled as one genre.

They're just comics. The confusion sounds like your own fault for having some preconceived notion that comics are an inferior medium to literature. Every medium has it's good and bad sides. Novels have Twilight, comics have Deadpool. Nothing is 100% high-class.

I don't believe a fucking word of that garbage about how DMT allegedly helps you open up your mind because if Spiritualism is real then that means Heaven Exists and if Heaven Exists then why do I need to take a prescription to become closer to god that is what the bible is for

If you're a Christian Male who prays to the one true lord you've already hit peak spiritualism. Ask all those saved souls who spend every waking moment at Jesus Camp https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LACyLTsH4ac they're the closest to god.

the bible was written by alcoholic nerds in the earlier parts of our history... its LITERATURE. myth and "law" god is only known in relation to the self .. its a treatise on the individual and is handy enough to fit in your lap. just be grateful we have a bit of our own history and culture to reflect on. dont get crucified over it like that try-hard Yeshua

I've published some of my poems that I've written over the past few days since now I have a platform to publish it and have some form of copyright. But one of my biggest questions I have as I'm sure anyone who publishes anything to this site is how in the fuck does the ranking system work?

Does anyone here know?

Sorry if this isn't the board, but it seems like it was the closest place.

i happen to be a rather tall sort of jolly fellow(not a jolly african-american) 6'5 wouldn''t you know it anyway (who gives a fuck right) i picked up recently a copy of gargantua and pantagruel which seems, though quixote-esque, to be basically a french tristram shandy. crass humour (lets not mention the embarrassing issue of translation) and interesting archaicisms spanning 1000 pages. i'll be sure to let you know how it turns out.

Anybody knows any good books about the dirty side of big corporations and or multinationals. Not some theory book critiquing capitalism but more like a book that has many stories.

I recently read Moral Mazes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_Mazes) where the author was embedded in a few corporations (a chemical conglomerate and a textile company, I believe). There are a lot of quotes from upper management spittin' some realpolitik. I'm not sure if it is exactly what you're requesting but I found it pretty interesting.

Haven't seen one in a while, let's get some OC poetry! Just wrote this right now,

Three kings and a jack, traveling down the road.
The road is it, it calls them all, with only time as their foe.
The curtain like clouds, blind them all.
Nothing's certain, nothing's forever

On they must go, on the they must go.

Hey /lit/ finding myself with a lot more time on my hands these days. I kind of feel like writing again but I want to give poetry a shot this time. Used to write a lot of short stories but I haven't in many years what little I did with poetry was way back in highschool and I remember nothing.

Anyone have some good book suggestions that cover the structure/form of different kinds of poetry, something I desperately need a refresher in. And just recommendations on some poetry collections in general that would be worth reading. Thanks guys.

when you seriously consider writing in verse, as a contemporary american, you find that we pronounce all of our shit colloquially in a retarded manner (untrue to the original and true form). it is literally (another retarded colloquialism) retarded to attempt serious poetic verse as an american living in 2019

I figured that philosophy is a thing that's missing in my life, I don't know why. I would like to read some, although I can't say which field of philosophy interests me. What reading would you recommend?

Thank you

The other /lit/ has a wiki which contains a number of philosophy reading recs and how to proceed in reading them. It's been memed to death, but unironically you should start with at least some of the Greeks. If you don't want to take a deep dive like that, I'd say tool around on the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, listen to In Our Time or The Partially Examined Life, or even just read Existential Comics and see what philosophers strike your interest

I need some help with Nietzsche. I tried reading through Beyond Good and Evil and could not understand most of it. I think I finally gave up after like 10 pages. Is this one especially challenging or am I just not smart/well-read enough to manage with his primary works?

Though it would probably be considered one of "the basics," pic fucking related.

Also (though it's not sci-fi), for those who'd be in to southern gothic, I might suggest Flannery O'Connor; Wise Blood was a fucking trip.

I lost a beginners guide of sorts for writing and poetry that mentions things like prose and sentence fragmenting in ways I really hadnt found before reading there. Going to be getting it back from storage far the fuck away this month. But I am feeling impatient and figure why not make a thread asking you all here what you consider the need-to-know terms of writing?

l just wanna be able to specify when my friends ask for feedback on their slam poetry and writing or music and stuff but, I feel like to even critique writing like that I would need better ways to articulate which parts of the writing need improvement, one creative to another you know?

Maybe one of the book suggestions in the Poetry for Beginners thread?

Here's an interesting interview with Le Guin:
"UKL: When you’re talking about the sound in the rhythm of prose, it is so different from poetry, because it’s in a way much coarser. It’s a very long beat, the rhythms of a prose work. Of course, the sentence has its rhythms too. Woolf was intensely aware of that. She has a paragraph about how rhythm is what gives her the book, but, boy, it’s hard to talk about. It’s one of these experiential things that we don’t really have a vocabulary for. I wonder if there is a vocabulary for it. It’s like talking, again, about music. You can only say so much about music and then you simply have to play it. Some person can hear it and get it or not get it."

You can sit down and read Strunk & White or a high school guide to poetic structure or something like that if you really want but it won't make you a better critic. Knowing the technical terms of English Language won't much improve your ability to judge English Literature.
Like you can tell your friends that their third pentamic quatrain has too few iambs and the internal rhyme scheme is inconsistent but you could also just say "this line feels off to me". Besides, not everyone who asks you for feedback is going to understand all that terminology.
If you read enough poetry and prose that your friends think you're a good person to ask then you'll know just by reading something when it's wrong and ninety-nine percent of the time simply knowing how to describe the problem in jargon won't help fix it. If your friends ask you how the pasta they made tastes you can just say it's too salty, you don't need to be able to reel off the precise concentration per gram of sodium chloride in the dish that they overshot by.

Not sure if this is the right place for this but my son who's in the 6th grade needs help on his creative writing assignment. It's due before Christmas break and I thought you guys might enjoy picking it apart.
Constructive criticism only please.

It's around noon. A young girl and her loving father are in the kitchen.

"Dad ,why does Jamal smell so bad? Doesnt he take baths?"

"Well, honey, it's because he's a black man black people usually have a weird, rancid, putrid, or even a revolting stench that comes from them. It's probably because they produce more aggression related hormones compared to other people. :-))"

"Oh! Is that why Mommy helps him take baths? And makes loud gutteral noises with also lots of bathtub squeaking? Because she's helping him to get the smell of hormonal aggression and pigsweat Dad?"

Father slides a speed loader filled with .45 hollow point rounds into his big, fatass motherfucking revolver then spins the cylinder which glistens silver and nickel under the sunlight while also making a satisfying clicking noise with every 6th of a rotation. He then stops the cylinder with hammer and pulls it back and says "Sweety I'll be right back, me and Jamal are gonna go to hunting for breakfast! Tell Mom I'll be back if she asks, and don't mention Jamal I want it to be a surprise!" he pats her head then kisses her forehead as he heads for the door as coolly and calmly as someone would leave the house for a leisurely Sunday afternoon for brunch and bookshopping, he had a hunch this was happening and therefore wasn't surprised, nonetheless he knew what he had to do and God damnit he was gonna enjoy it. He heads to Jamals house, and let's himself in with the copy of Jamals house key he gave to his wife and heads upstairs into the dirty pig jolly african-americans room. "Good, I caught him sleeping. Time to wake this stupid animal up." He coerces the sleeping man through clever tricks to open his mouth until he could just have enough room to slide the cold metal alloy barrels into his mouth then proclaims, "WAKE UP YOU SOON-TO-BE-DICKLESS jolly african-american AND BEG FOR YOUR LIFE!" Jamal awakes, and matches Father's gaze with his own fear-filled eyes, after a second or two he attempts to make a confused as well as desperate plea for his life with a fat metal cock in his mouth; as soon as he even begins to make the slightest pitiful noise, Father let's loose the volumtuous slug from his fat motherfucking revolver with the greatest sense of glee and resolve as he watches the jolly african-americanpiggies brain matter and blood soak into the bed. Father pulls out his knife and cuts off Jamal's member. Father returns home within 20 minutes of him leaving and turns on the stove then begins to make breakfast for one while calling his brother to come pick up his daughter. His brother gets her within minutes, soon after, Father throws the black guys cock on the pan after getting the skin off and cooks it to resemble a fatass juicy sausage. He cooks a delicious, beautiful, 10-star breakfast and retrieves the eat-in-bed-tray and brings the sweetest revenge meal up to his dumb, dirty, jolly african-american loving whore of a wife and watches with an amazing sense of accomplishment and the most sweetest taste of revenge as she gobbles up Jamal's severed, seared to perfection and seasoned cock.
