Dazai and Mishima.

The Art of Hapiness

The Old Man and the Sea might be helpful

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

if you have any religious tendencies, East of Eden.

Anything by Camus: yes, life is shit, and maybe suicide is the only choice that makes sense, but maybe life isn't about making sense.

The Bible
The Baghavad Gita
The works of Marcus Aurelius, Senece and Epictetus
The works of Epicurus and Lucretius
The works of Augustine and Aquinas
The works of Aristotles
The works of Nietzsche (sometimes)
The Qu'ran (perhaps)
The works of Henry Miller (seriously)
The works of Montaigne and Descartes
The Divine Comedy, and Dante's works generally
The works of Rabelais
The works of Goethe (some of them at least)
Some erotic poetry
The works of Emerson

Now that we've covered the basis, the thread can begin.

Nice.

Series of Unfortunate Events. It's easy, funny, filled with references to other literature, and a major theme is moving forward despite tragedy.

And now I will leave /lit/ forever so no one can attack this small corner of my childhood.

This guy is trolling you.

I'd say Emerson like this guy >>5963941, and also some of the more positive Dosto books, like The Brothers Karamazov.
>>
>>5963890
Is this actually good?

>>5963941
What erotic poetry would you recommend?
>>
>>5964946
yeah, I read an enjoyed them as a kid too. Do they still hold up at YA?

>>5965048
As long as you approach them without the mind of a literary critic they're not bad.
>>
Maybe you'd be interested in romantic literature?

Dive into the unknown, explore the beautiful irrationality, find the truth that is true for you?
>>
If your going through a depression read Flowers of Evil. Best emotional roller coaster ever. Make sure you read it during the sunrise, though.
>>
I recommend Siddhartha, plebby happy escapism fiction, key self improvement books (eg 7 habits or How to win friends), and some carpe diem-esque existential stuff.

Is what's depicted on the screen what this guy is watching? If so, the graphics are shit and the subject matter is boring as fuck. A rainbow? Really? That lantern is more interesting.

This photo would be more convincing if it was a big ol' pair of titties or something.

Not really sure. I didn't read it in English. I read a version that had the translated version on the left page and the original text at the right page. That's the only way to read poetry if you don't know the native language well.

Yes, it's showing the view on each of the Oculus' screens, and yes, I think that's a lame VR to choose if you are miserable and wanting to escape reality.

>>5965158
It's a homage to pic related.
Would work way better if his apartment didn't look middle class as fuck
>>
>>5965292
Interesting, I didn't know that. When is the original from?
>>
>>5965309
Not certain, but it has been floating around for a long while.
