Interzone / Accessible Literature

Despite its failure as an encyclopedia, I have recently found something of Wikipedia's that is good. The following link, http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Main_Page, hosts a library of several works that are within the public domain of the U.S. It's a great source to promote literacy and learning, as it contains works from various authors, from Plato to Shakespeare to Schopenhauer.

Sure you can check out these works from the library, or buy the book on Amazon, but this is handy for those short stories, poems, and hard to find books. It's also handy for reading works (within the U.S. public domain) that are hard to find in a certain language.

Interzone / Metal is reading?

As I was remembering parts of the "metal is fun, so is reading" topic, and as I was reading Ildjarn's Final Statement, it really did dawn on me on how this music we listen to, on how any music that's truly worthy, is essentially a novel. What I mean is, the music is not really about its subject at all, but rather its author, its composer. When we listen to music, we look at a world through another's perspective. We experience their thoughts, their feelings. This is strongest when we listen to compositions wrought in misery and torture, or exploding with joy and ecstasy, or in valiance and triumph. As some of the articles I've read here have pointed out, and as even Ildjarn said himself, arts speaks of itself. In this case, while the individuals involved in the creative process may have been searching for ways to channel their hate, or perhaps they were looking for meaning or reason to exist, or maybe striving for some ideal - they leave with us their music, if at their own expense. So is that what the best music is - that which is sacrificed by the composer?
