so heres the dildo

Recommended Posts

THIS IS NOT A HOMEWORK HELP THREAD!!

 

 

okay, so heres the deal. i have to read 2 novels and one poetry collection, all written by american authors. then i have to do some bullshit road map thing where i do something about their hometowns? i dont know.

 

but ive read all the classics and i fucking hate poetry.

 

what i need YOU to do is choose 2 novels (american authors remember). they can be written at any point in time as long as it was in america. the more obscure the better, the teacher claims shes read enough books to compose 3 unique quizzes per person, theres 40 kids in the class, she teaches 3 classes. so thats a shitload of books shes "read". give me some crazy ass obscure basement variety novels to read.

and also a poet whos american, make sure they have written atleast 20 somethin poems if they are short.

 

i have to choose by september 17th.

 

props for good advice

 

 

 

and heres some boobies

Dreamland: Edgar Allan Poe

 

 

Dreamland

 

By a route obscure and lonely,

Haunted by ill angels only,

Where an Eidolon, named NIGHT,

On a black throne reigns upright,

I have reached these lands but newly

From an ultimate dim Thule-

From a wild clime that lieth, sublime,

Out of SPACE- out of TIME.

 

Bottomless vales and boundless floods,

And chasms, and caves, and Titan woods,

With forms that no man can discover

For the tears that drip all over;

Mountains toppling evermore

Into seas without a shore;

Seas that restlessly aspire,

Surging, unto skies of fire;

Lakes that endlessly outspread

Their lone waters- lone and dead,-

Their still waters- still and chilly

With the snows of the lolling lily.

 

By the lakes that thus outspread

Their lone waters, lone and dead,-

Their sad waters, sad and chilly

With the snows of the lolling lily,-

By the mountains- near the river

Murmuring lowly, murmuring ever,-

By the grey woods,- by the swamp

Where the toad and the newt encamp-

By the dismal tarns and pools

Where dwell the Ghouls,-

By each spot the most unholy-

In each nook most melancholy-

There the traveller meets aghast

Sheeted Memories of the Past-

Shrouded forms that start and sigh

As they pass the wanderer by-

White-robed forms of friends long given,

In agony, to the Earth- and Heaven.

 

For the heart whose woes are legion

'Tis a peaceful, soothing region-

For the spirit that walks in shadow

'Tis- oh, 'tis an Eldorado!

But the traveller, travelling through it,

May not- dare not openly view it!

Never its mysteries are exposed

To the weak human eye unclosed;

So wills its King, who hath forbid

The uplifting of the fringed lid;

And thus the sad Soul that here passes

Beholds it but through darkened glasses.

 

By a route obscure and lonely,

Haunted by ill angels only,

Where an Eidolon, named NIGHT,

On a black throne reigns upright,

I have wandered home but newly

From this ultimate dim Thule.

Favorite book of Bukowski poems, especially the first one in the book. Lots about boozing and womanizing - should delight your teacher.

Pretty fucking strange.

Loads about prostitutes, drinking, being poor, bizarre friendships, being a scumbag. Great book.

I like the Raymond Chandler idea, although your teacher will have read him without a doubt LA around that time period is a interesting subject for the road map part of the assignment.

Re: so heres the delio.

 

None of these books are that obscure, I've read about 85% of them. And I thought Hesse was German.

 

"A Confederacy of Dunces" is great, I recommend it everyone but I'm willing to bet three other people in your class are going to pick that book too. "Sometimes a Great Notion" by Ken Kesey is a good story and an easy read. Walt Whitman or Lawrence Ferlinghetti are a couple of poets to start with.

 

Let me wake up a bit more and I'll get back to this.
