What should I read next? The four on the left are books I have read, the others I haven't.
>>
Probably jeckel or Faust
>>
blood meridian if you enjoyed joyce
>>
OP here, just to clarify, I mean that the ones on the left are ones that I have read and I feel are due a reread.
>>12190022
I'm thinking of rereading Portrait because I read it before the idea of enjoying prose clicked with me. Since then I've read Dubliners and I got a copy of Ulysses for my birthday. I'm not going to read it until I've read the Odyssey and Hamlet but I've flipped through the first couple chapters and the prose is fucking gorgeous, it feels like he's making the most of every little action. Even when I read Portrait as a pleb the bit with the priest describing hell blew me away so I definitely need to reread it

>the I've just into lit starter pack

Faust 100%

>>12189955
No Longer Human and Lot 49 are quick reads, i'm halfway through both of them at the moment. I'd recc either of those

Take off your pants and squat down over the books and let your dick dangle like pendulum. Pick the book over which your dick stops dangling.

ordered this yesterday
wondered how I'd reached this stage in my life without realizing there were apocryphal books of the Bible (though I recently discovered the Shepherd of Hermas from Jung's commentary on it in his essay "The Worship of Woman and The Worship of the Soul")
>>
>>12190861
I was talking about the Old Testament apocrypha, actually. But the NT apocrypha is worth reading as long as you realize that it's not canon and should not inform any doctrine and is not the Word of God.

Joyce is the goat novelist. I'm thinking about the balancing of the shaving bowl right now
