I have been reading, "Possessed", by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, which is a work of genius and I recommend it; my favorite character being Pyotor Stepanovich who charms and manipulates an influential family to cause havoc in the aristocracy. Anyways, this is not just a topic on this one book, but in many classics and the use of subtle hints of sex. In this particular book though, if you may, you can skim through this http://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/d/dostoyevsky/d72p/chapter18.html, if you don't mind mild spoilers, to look at very subtle hints but obvious hints of sex. Sometimes when reading classic literature, you can second guess yourself, but then if you look deeper and feel your first reaction, you will understand that it is actually right. I find this interesting and worth posting about because it seems compared to more modern literature, it is deeper and more in-depth, reaches to your core; but that may be just Dostoyevsky. Anways, to conclude this topic and not ramble, if you read a classic book, and you come across a segment that brings any sex to your mind, even though it is not explicit or obvious, it is most likely true, and also has more of an effect on the reader. I also would enjoy some opinions and your knowledge on this topic. Good day
I believe bringing back the European tradition of Dueling would benefit society immensely and should be exempt from the law. Men had a more respectful and civil behavior toward one another; you defame ones character or honor, be prepared to put your life on it. There would be less cowardly smart-asses for sure and bring back the warrior code of honor, so maybe..their would be less back-stabbing and other cowardly acts.
I don't understand peoples immense enthusiasm for sports; it seems the talk comes about as much as weather, and the worshipping of teams and the rituals that come along with that baffles me, I don't know how people can be so concerned with "their" team. And when people go on about a certain player like a peasant talking about the King
This is more of a question than anything and I'm interested in some intelligent replies. Why is it that most of Spain's colonies have become so mixed-raced compared to their rival counterparts? It seems Spain was more willing to breed with the Natives and Africans compared to England, the Dutch or France who's colonies have remained, for the most part, white.
This novel 'The Red and the Black' by Stendhal is a must read. Once you pick this book up you will not let it down. It is beyond a few descriptions but I assure you all that it fits a lot your personalities and thinking. Hail classic literature! Sadly, Stendhal has only a few novels, he was not acclaimed as much as he should have been in his time, but is one of the greatest authors that has ever lived.
Yes, these guys were young and comical, and at one time very over-hyped. But I must say, these guys did create some very chaotic yet dark music, has the feeling of an old dark humid city in France. I try to block the stupid pictures these guys(probably regretfully) took of themselves and think of more fitting scenes in my mind when listening to the music.
I don't understand how moving to the west coast is so appealing to a lot of people. A few of my friends plan on moving over there and its all they fucking talk about. I mean sure, there is a good music scene, but is it really that marvellous? What's with the hype?
Do you have any certain antiques and interesting old things? I don't have much, mostly medals from ww2 that was handed down to me from my grandpa. My favourite antique though is an old German "Berliner" newspaper with a bearded U-boat Captain on the cover that I bought for 25 dollars at a pawn shop and framed it on my wall. Odd because I live in South Carolina and its a rare thing here in these swampy parts. Its interesting to see the advertisements in the back, just like any other newspaper even though it came from a fascist regime.
I'm sure a few post here or visit. If so, share your experiences. A few of my friends were sent over there, the only combat they had were a few close encounters with explosives, maybe a little exchanging fire. Not much of a war from what they tell me, mostly just walking around and patronizing the local inhabitants out of boredom. Actually, this topic can apply to all veterans of any specific war.
It seems in the end of every discussion I have about this subject everyone agrees that it was the ethical or 'right' thing to do. Which is fine, I could care less, its war. But what really angers me is the hypocrisy in this thinking; if Hiroshima bombing was the right thing to do, why wouldn't 9/ll and other forms of terrorism be wrong? You never hear about Hiroshima or Nagasaki as a Genocide; which it technically was. If people would just agree that It was a 'Genocide' this would not irk me so much but obviously its not genocide if the United States did it, a Empire that has a military base in just about every fucking country in the world.
I was introduced to this man's work with the book, 'Storm of Steel' , when I had an obsession with World War 1. Since then, I have read many of his works that have been translated in English. For the most part they are harder to find, but you can get an old copy for less than the new James Patterson book. I find his writing style very subtle, imaginary, with the beauty of life in coexistence with the ugly. He has become one of my favourite classic writers; and one of the last. I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts and opinions on this writer.
