post minor questions here because apparently the smartest board on 4chan can't keep track of more than four active threads at a time
Don't read Lovecraft it's shit
>hurr hurr and the monster is a penguin of indescribable horror Kil'ahn Cup'te'
The whole board isn't just one person, anon.
But if you're new to this board and you haven't read the sticky and /lit/ wiki, you're probably going to get laughed at by the /lit/-cool kids.
No worries, anything to get people away from awful, gaudy editions like pic related which can't even sit on your shelf properly because of the dreadful embossing on the hardcover.
Compared to most other book forums, even literary magazines, /lit/ has much better taste in books. Mostly because there's often a couple dissenting opinions explaining themselves equally well and explaining the feelings of both parties. This normally goes as follows:
>"if u don't like this u r a faggot bitch"
>"no I'm just not an 11 year old going through growth hormone induced puberty and writing about it in a dollar store coloring book"

This is home to NEETs who got a 13 on every part of their ACT except for English and Reading comprehension, so they horde the only thing they're "good" at and pretend it matters, therefore they feel their disposition to reading comprehension and art is meaningful and something to be proud of.
Where do I start with Plato's dialogues?
My father gave me his Huntington & Cairns anthology to read, and I started from the front this morning. I've read Socrates' Apology, Crito, Phaedo, and Charmides so far, in that order.
Awesome stuff so far. However, the more I read, the more I feel like there's a specific order I ought to be following.
If I want to start reading and learning about philosophy but don't really want to read a fuck huge list of texts from a single author what should I start with?
Is there a good a collection style or textbook like thing that I should look at?
Besides Hamlet and Falstaff, who would be considered Shakespeare's greatest characters?
And if they all got in a fight, who would win?

if reading the instruction manual for a fondue pot implies that I've just purchased my own fondue pot and am preparing to use it for the first time, therefore also about to have some tasty ass fondue, then I definitely pick that one.
