Why do I want this to be my world? Am I tired of the status quo or is it that I like the idea of drugs too much to admit I have a problem?

Hipster Slut 19/10/12(Sat)19:34 No. 18035

Well, it would certainly simplify things to live in such a world...

What is the basic premise of this book? I don't know what it is. I feel so ignorant. I can't have peace until I reach omniscience which is the standard I have for myself. lol
I'm not against escapism as a life existence. I think all people of all life types should be accepted. That may be the bed rock of this book, I don't know. But I would say that this book is not something I absolutely understand. I think there is no reason to mistreat those with different ways of being. I'm not any amount interested in functioning in that general manner. I don't think there's good reason to. I'll listen to explanations for how it would be but I'm not convinced. I'm convinced I won't be convinced. But maybe there's something somewhere that meets my standards of proof. lol Based.

Writing own stories is good hobby, i think. The idea was born, but there is one catch. Such a grandiose plan will pull only an experienced and very talented writer, and not a beginner. Therefore, we must start with fairy tales. I am begginer so can not write interesting and adventure stories. Plus my essay in colege also looks bad,so I use help of https://edusson.com/admission-essay-writing-service

I'm not smart enough to tell you how to improve this but it at the moment it is very generic.

Hipster Slut 19/08/24(Sat)00:25 No. 18018

You have trouble with emphasis. The amount of detail you describe things in isn't according to overall narrative significance, but rather what you find to be the most interesting on a moment to moment basis.

This is not a smart way of writing. It results in the reader fixating on random background noise while important story details get completely missed.

Hipster Slut 19/09/20(Fri)09:41 No. 18025

Your story is not bad for reading. I think i am bad in writing own compositions. I need more practise in expressing own minds and points of view. Now i sometimes use help with writing essays in rushessay review here https://topessayguiders.com/rushessay-review/

What do you think of José Saramago? I read 'The Elephant's Journey' and thought it was good. His style really drew me in and was very clever. Curious to know if anyone has read any of his other works and what they thought of them.

I'm probably about to start writing a thesis on his work in the next few months, I've read most of his work and over the next 9 months, I'll probably have read all of it. I think from that it's pretty obvious what I think of him. What do you wanna know? I'll try to answer as best I can

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?

Hipster Slut 17/10/14(Sat)05:09 No. 17838

Genjimonogatari is to old to be ancient?
