I like to read different kinds of poems written by non-professional writers. I do not write any stuff because I am bad in it and often use writing services like https://edusson.com/pay-for-research-paper for writing my research papers and esssays

Ancient Novel Hipster Slut 17/06/05(Mon)22:51 No. 17818 [Reply]

File 149669590413.jpg - (82.93KB , 558x719 , Lucius_Apuleius_Platonicus,_from_'Crabbes_His.jpg )

Currently reading the 11th book of the Golden Ass for class, overrated piece of asinine shit that it is... Apuleius now gets a 12 vol. commentary (Groningen), with each miserable expression getting about 2 pages of notes on average. That's twice as much as Kirk & Edward's HOMER. The whole thing would on my estimate weigh about 48 pounds; not at all bad for a Madurian fucking upstart. Aristonicus be damned.
Philologists and "Classicists" can't seem to get enough of him, I haven't an inkling why. His latin is as perturbed as a contortionist orgy, heaping senseless upon senseless participles, florid adjectives that you can't even tell aren't substantives half the time, almost disposing of reasonable syntax - let alone periodic structure! And of course the literature isn't worth it. All this kitschy, baroque tripe, used to express the stupidest banalities in the most roundabout way possible (like in the proem with the horse... has an entire book on it btw, from Brill); a stylistic crambe repetita that makes the Declamator's plight in Juvenal seem enviable.
But how well I would've liked for the commentators to flock around this piece just because of the linguistic difficulty and the endless use of figures. They seem to be more interested in the CONTENTS, for god's sake! What a queer thing is the academic zeitgeist. I mean, it must be his salaciousness, lack of moral standards and insipid spirituality that really gets to them.

And I guess all this talk about the Ancient Novel really serves very little else. Aren't these just all mediocre, self-indulgent romances? I concede that the Ancients' had probably achieved something far greater than the Moderns ever had with poetry, history, oratory and even plain intelligent prose; but novels were an inferior literary style, and hence what we got is worthless. Petronius might be the only one who doesn't make for an insufferable read, but even he is just so vicious.
What do you think? Would the intelligent reader really miss that much if he or she'll jump straight to Boccacio?

Hipster Slut 17/06/13(Tue)16:19 No. 17819

The reasen why the golden ass gets so much attention is because no other complete latin novel survives.
Sure it's not that good, but if it's all there is, what are you gonna do about it?

The novel tells the story of a day (June 16, 1904, now celebrated as Bloomsday, "bloom's day") of Dublin's Philistine and Jew by nationality – Leopold bloom. But now I do not have time for reading because I am fight with writing papers and essays at college. From time to time I used help of https://essaypro.com/custom-essay-writers.html

I do not read this book but want to read it in the future. I am fond of literature and reading books. But now I do not have much time for reading books an writing essays in college. The Golden rule of success: each of your work should be better than the previous one. Then sooner or later you will get to the goal — just because you do not go the distance.So, I needed to get help with essays from https://writemyessayonline.com/college-essay-writing-service.html

I liked the book. Glad I saw it here. I was most interested in quotes, and I used many of them in my essay. By the way, I received help in writing here https://gpalabs.com/. I hope i can look for more interesting quotes there

I'd like to try sharing my story with stories. I wrote the story for myself in a way, and I've sat on it for a year, and feel that I should try sharing it with others.

It seems like places want shorter word counts. Are there any outlets for this?

I wrote an essay about 6000 words. I will not say that I wrote it myself, but I am very grateful to the service https://gpalabs.com/essay-writing/buy-essay.html for the help. Long stories are always more interesting than short ones, as there is an opportunity to describe the events taking place more extensively, this is exactly what happened in my case. I'm happy with everything. If you are interested, I can share my essay (subject - psychology in a relationship)
