name some obscure, forgotten classics
>tfw so nerdy I instantly recognize that movie
>>13451593not really. it’s pretty much his best known movie. unless you’re being ironic
Westward Ho! by Charles Kingsley
Le Roman de la Rose by Guillaume de Lorris/Jean de Meung is largely forgotten outside of medieval academic circles, especially considering how popular it was at the time and its influence on the Divine Comedy. Tristan and Isolde is also forgotten to some level, also crazy popular for its time period.
>>13451588>obscure, forgotten classics>still of wild strawberries, Bergman’s most popular film>pseud
>>13451651i just chose the picture because it was the most recent one in my folder, it had nothing to do with the concept of the thread. also i already said mentioned that it’s his most popular film here >>13451603
>>13451593Everyone on /lit/ has seen Smultronstället at least twice.
>>13451588You don't hear much about Jean Christophe by Romain Rolland these days, but it was once a widely celebrated novel.
>>13451678SHUT UP YOU FUCKING TWAT
>>13451588The Notebook of Gustav Anias Horn After He Was 49 Years Old by Hans Henny JahnnVie de Rancé by ChateaubriandThere are many more but those 2 are my personnal favorite. They would both go in my top 10 favorite book ever if I had to make one.
>>13451593Wow yeah youre like so smart and deeply philosophical for recognizing entry level arthouse. Now I wanna suck ur throbbing intellectual benis while we watch a real bergman at the local little indie cinema my man.
>>13452566thanks anon, I will check out both of them
Not exactly forgotten, but Stendhal should be read more widely.
>>13454008In France he is still widely read, mostly because Le Rouge et le Noir is mandatory at school. I prefer La Chartreuse de Parme though. Also Céline post Death On Credit, he made incredible stuff forgotten because of Bagatelles (I mostly think of Normance and Nord)
>>13451588George MacDonald is great. Phantastes is very worth reading, and There and Back is the best of CS Lewis' nonrigorous apologetics in novel form.

>>13451593hey man you should check out Stalker by Tarkovsky
>>13451593shut up retard
>>13451593You have to go back redditor, Bergman is pleb shit
I Burn Paris by Bruno Jasieński. Poland has some absolutely underrated authors, some of which /lit/ have found out like Gombrowicz that would be obscure anywhere else but here surprisingly, so good on us for that, they still tend to be overlooked though. Amusingly when I look it up on Google this is the book that comes up
>>13451588war and peace
>>13456327Garbage take, anon. Bergman is entry and exit level
>>13459035every German sf reader knows that shit
>>13459054Sounds pretty obscure to me, in the grand scheme of things.
>>13451593holy....i want more
One of the best books I've ever read. If you enjoy sci-fi you owe it to yourself to read this.
>>13451650Tristan and Isolde is great. Christine de Pizan absolutely BTFOd Le Roman de la Rose (La citté des dammes is also mostly forgotten and I really enjoyed it). There are some spanish medieval classics I would recommend too: Cárcel de Amor and Amadís de Gaula (better know as being one of the books not burned in don Quijote) and Laberinto de la Fortuna. La Celestina is better known but I think within english speaking people it is not.
>>13456487Thanks, anon. Any other Polish lit recs?
>>13451593You're the opposite of edgy but on the same spectrum of faggotry.
