>book title is "[famous person] cried"
>or generally "[famous person] [does action]"
I consider this cheap for some reason.

Post pet peeves, I guess.

name one book that does this

>Nietzsche cried
>Odysseys wept
I am sure there are more.
Kafka on the Shore fits the wider category.
>>
>>7554641
No, wait, that first one is originally called "When Nietzsche wept", Nietzsche cried is just what it was translated to in my country.

>Kafka on the Shore fits the wider category.
It doesn't. The phrase lacks a verb.
>>
>>7554584
>Thus Spake Zarathustra
>>
>>7554660
It fits the wider circles of that category because it can be interpreted as an elliptical "Kafka (is) on the Shore" or "Kafka (had fun) on the Shore" or "Kafka (is standing in a queue to get ice cream but the longer he waits the longer the queue gets because the iceman keeps letting other people go first and the ice cream is getting more and more expensive by the hour and Kafka does not know why he is standing here in the first because he is lactose intolerant and when he finally reaches the counter the iceman is berating him for being judgemental and he has to back to the end of the queue or even better go to the other ice shop that has no customers because it is too cheap but there is no one working there and then Kafka realizes he is the one working there and that he was the iceman all along) on the Shore".

Odysseus Wept doesn't exist

Hu? I am pretty sure I saw the cover of that book just this morning on /lit/. Maybe I misremember the name? I think it was in that chart thread but I can't really find it.

>Writers who clearly haven't considered their style.
Read a set of short stories by Proulx the other day, and it was terrible. I think it was terrible because there wasn't at any point any consideration for who or what was narrating the novel or the style of the narration. Awful.

Fuck ofd

I chuckled. Good one.

>the name of the book and/or author's name is elevated on the cover

There is no reputable author nor publishing company who does this.
>>
>never you mind
never you mind

never you mind

I can't read hillbilly stories because it's plagued with niggers saying this.

No I swear it was there and it was real, Mister Nice Digits.
