the attached image isn't the only one, there's a couple dozen on there

2018-04-11 23:31:29 UTC  

Great stuff, thank you @Mephisto

2018-04-11 23:36:36 UTC  

Yeah sure thing, I'm currently doing the start with the greeks meme more or less. Going to start on the iliad tomorrow

2018-04-11 23:38:03 UTC  

I've been meaning to read the Iliad, there was a pretty good one I saw on Amazon a few days ago that was a great quality hardback with both the Iliad and Odyssey for something like £10

2018-04-11 23:39:43 UTC  

apparently the robert fagles translation is really good so i went with those, also because i like the way they look, even though the books are overpriced

I try to read books online unless I want them for long term use libgen.io

2018-04-11 23:40:15 UTC  

^libgen is a good site for anyone looking for free pdfs

2018-04-11 23:40:58 UTC  

Oh wait no, just found it, £17.16, 752 pages and bonded leather, there's something about having a physical copy and being able to collect them that appeals to me honestly

2018-04-11 23:42:08 UTC  

oh yeah, the leather barnes and noble classics are nice, I have one thats the complete works of shakespeare and the same for edgar allan poe

2018-04-11 23:42:59 UTC  

Ah nice, I have The Raven by Poe and I'm impressed with him so far, I'll have to take a look at the complete works at some point

2018-04-11 23:44:38 UTC  

Yeah I'm not some big reader or something, I have yet to go through a lot of them. I only just started reading again last year, made a resolution to read regularly so I've only recently been getting big brained

2018-04-11 23:45:40 UTC  

I've only actually read 2 works by Shakespeare but I'm planning on buying Holinshed's Chronicles of England which is apparently what Shakespeare got all his sources from. Being an Englishman I'd love to have a total knowledge of my country's history and it's Kings

2018-04-11 23:46:45 UTC  

reading pdfs are boring

2018-04-11 23:46:52 UTC  

i prefer to have it in my hand

2018-04-11 23:46:56 UTC  

from paper

2018-04-11 23:48:20 UTC  

oh I definitely prefer it, but online its free and quick. I split up how I read it @Sleightology

I'll add that one to my reading list, I know basically nothing about English history even though it seems fascinating

2018-04-11 23:49:19 UTC  

It's a pretty damning statement of the modern school system that I know almost nothing about my own nation's history

2018-04-11 23:49:47 UTC  

We spent all that time in history learning lies about the holocaust

2018-04-11 23:50:15 UTC  

^^^^

2018-04-11 23:50:17 UTC  

same

2018-04-11 23:50:43 UTC  

i knew nothing about world history and geography when i left school but i knew all about the holocaust and ghandi and nelson mandela

2018-04-11 23:51:02 UTC  

oh except for how nelson mandela was a murderer and a terrorist

2018-04-11 23:51:15 UTC  

what a joke

2018-04-11 23:51:37 UTC  

Pretty much yeah. We were reading To Kill a Mockingbird when we could have been reading the classics of the west

We did learn a good bit of real history at my school, but thats probably just because my teacher was a cool guy

2018-04-11 23:52:19 UTC  

Almost all of my knowledge, except for the basic foundations, I pursued and found out myself. I made a point of learning about politics, WW2, National Socialism, the English Civil War and spirituality, all through books I bought and the internet

2018-04-11 23:52:43 UTC  

same!

2018-04-11 23:52:50 UTC  

I remember learning about Goethe for the first time and when I read Faust I was just dumbfounded because there was this work of art that some consider to be one of the greatest books of all time and I'd never even heard of it or had any contact with it

2018-04-11 23:53:02 UTC  

i gained everything i know as soon as i left school

2018-04-11 23:53:12 UTC  

I've never read Faust, or anything by Goethe sadly

2018-04-11 23:53:38 UTC  

I went to a Grammar School which makes it all worst

2018-04-11 23:53:46 UTC  

worse*

2018-04-11 23:54:38 UTC  

Im still in uni but yeah most of the stuff ive learned ive taught myself

Schools are designed to produce worker units (if that) not intellectuals (or even just intelligent people)

Yeah you should read Faust, parts of it can be a bit difficult but overall its a very good book, I'd recommend the (((Kaufmann))) translation

2018-04-11 23:55:12 UTC  

Kaufmann was the original Luke Ford, he was a goy who converted to judaism

2018-04-11 23:55:25 UTC  

I heard somewhere that the second volume or part is essentially not worth reading, is that true?

2018-04-11 23:56:15 UTC  

reason I know that is I always check if the translators are jewish

Its not, Kaufmann translates Act I scene I and all of Act 5 for you
just read a summary of the rest

2018-04-11 23:57:30 UTC  

Part of why its not worth reading is its hard to translate as its more poetic and its so riddled with references and allusions that basically only scholars or megabrains can understand it

Part I came out long before it and is the really famous part. Read the ending though, it provides closure to it and its really good

2018-04-11 23:58:36 UTC  

Thank you, I definitely will

2018-04-11 23:59:04 UTC  

Today I ordered Hitler's Table Talk so I'm out of shekels, but that'll be my next read

2018-04-11 23:59:43 UTC  

<:fed:402375322215120898>

2018-04-11 23:59:58 UTC  

Nice. Yeah I've gotta read a lot of the natsoc stuff, there's a lot of overlap between the reading list you posted earlier and stuff on my list

2018-04-12 00:00:00 UTC  

learning about hitler isnt fed behaviour
