Read A Walking Aphrodisiac now.

#Burn the bookstores #Shoot the mailman #Stop the printing
Anti-intellectual prose, monarch butterflies, walking aphrodisiacs and anthropomorphic sperm. Encompassing sexuality, embracing the future, puking antibiotics, dropping napalm on the Louvre.
Stab your teacher, bite his neck and wipe the blood off your chin with a textbook.

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?

quid o amice mi feliciter legas? Numquam istum librum nomine "Asinus aureus" legi, nam opus est mihi in hoc semestri omina opera Ovidii legere (etsi tamen sat injucundus est mihi). Philologos sive grammaticos haud magnos aestimo esse, quia revera haud legere possint, id est semper opertet illos in anglicam linguam vel alias linguas verba linguae latinae vertere ut aliquid intellegant. utique, si licet iterum dicere, sine me rogare, quid litterae latinae bonae legam. Aliis verbis, quid magni vel maximi momenti censes?

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

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
