Pictures of authors

I just saw this photo of James Joyce on the NYRB website. I'd never seen it before. I don't know why I feel so uncomfortable about it. Maybe it's because I'm so used to seeing Joyce in the common authorial poses that anything that strays from that is peculiar.

It is a cool picture, what is he doing?

He looks like a depressed pirate that got invited to a wedding but got lost, had to go cross country, tore his good trousers on some barbed wire, had to borrow some slacks from a boating team. Now he is sitting around sad that he missed Angelica McTeagle's wedding to Samuel Carnform, only the most prestigious pirate wedding that Devon has seen for 50 years. But any moment now he will be interrupted by the Smaels family, and although they will laugh at his claims to be a dangerous pirate and significant modernist author, they will embark on an adventure together to reclaim Angelica's necklace from a desert island off the coast of Zurich.

Allegedly this is George Orwell and Ernest Hemingway. I'm dubious myself, although the picture was used as the front cover for the Penguin Modern Classics edition of Homage to Catalonia.

Tolstoy was a badass. Too bad he was so arrogant that he wanted to be Jesus in the end of his life; to be rich, a patriarch, respected and one of the greatest writers of all time was not enough for him.

Cigarettes are in part cool because of the fact that they kill you. Indifference is cool, and indifference to death is the ultimate form of indifference.

The other aspect that's missing from e-cigs is the element of lighting. Lighting a cigarette is akin to the cocking of a gun. It's just a cool action that draws attention. E-cigs are like weird midget hookahs.

No, they're portrayed as filth and poverty-tier. It's funny how quickly cigarettes went from cool to ok to pestilential.
>>

Indifference might be cool but paying someone lots of money to kill you is just stupid. Face it man, they're not cool anymore. They're trashy. They're like tramp stamps.

They were always for poor people. But cool poor people. Like soldiers in the trenches hiding the light with the palm or hobo writers sharing a crumpled last cigarette or factory workers taiking a break from working their lives away for the nation. Poverty is less glamorous now.

Then what's become Cigarettes v2.0? We've already dismissed e-cigs. Reefer is inexorable with the defiant teenager crowd.

Everything costs money. Water costs money (you pay taxes for it). I want to die at a ripe age and I'm fine paying for that. Keep in mind nicotine is a potent nootropic and if you don't live in a shithole like America a pack of cigarettes is no more than a couple dollars
>>
>>6391496
portrayed as something cool and edgy (I assume you mean in the media)=///= being cool irl
also why do you think so many shows/movies are period pieces that feature a ton of smoking...it's because they can get away with it and directors love smoke, it's visually unmatchable

of course smoking is a poor decision in real life, but saying it's not "cool" is a pretty goober statement, did you just come from your middle school dare class?
>>
>>6393072
I got off track, what I meant to say was looking down on cigarettes is just something goody good middle class children and teenagers do in large because of the association with poverty, even though they would say/'believe' that it's because of health and being "dirty/stupid"(the same words they would associate with poor people, what a coincidence!).
Look at the difference between number of smokers at any community college versus any state school (not counting art major brats or at parties, like during the day). The poor and the top rich are going to keep smoking.

Not an expert on Joyce, but Ulysses was banned in a lot of places in his lifetime and was/is kind of novelty literature as opposed to mass market (i.e. moneymaking) lit.

Pffffffft. Government's constantly raise taxes on the fucking things because it's a tax nicotine addicts are going to pay. It's ten euro for a pack of Marlboro or Benson and Hedges in Ireland, and 6 euro for a box of roll ups. Seriously, fuck that, it's hard enough trying to make ends meet as it is. I'm glad I packed in poisoning myself with the fucking things.

Not entirely, but The Skin is...I've seen it discussed very little on /lit/, mostly in confusion and kind of swept under the rug.
I consider it one of the best books ever written.

Kaputt has scenes of the same quality, the surreal, hallucinatory nightmares of WW2, but the aim was different because Malaparte still didn't know who would win.

Start with The Skin and if it grabs you and haunts you like it did with me, definitely follow it up with Kaputt
