    >marxian theories of poetry and imagination

    What would this even look like? This seems like one of those ideas which are so removed and abstract that they become nearly meaningless.

      I get where you're coming from, but in good examples of the kind the whole point is to be the opposite of removed. They're trying to make a link between the abstractions of aesthetics and concrete social life. One of the best is Fredric Jameson, and this essay of his on Rimbaud might give you an idea of his approach as applied to poetry: https://my-blackout.com/2018/02/20/fredric-jameson-rimbaud-and-the-spatial-text/

      Any idea can be connected to any other in a way that at least seems plausible, with a bit of effort. It's what the sophists taught, and sophistry never died.

    Here in Brazil we had some years ago a semi scandal about a humanities researcher wasting taxes money by publishing papers on gay dogging in public (he was the subject of the research) so if you want academia to be reasonable at all, even more so in this day and age, you are in for a rough awakening

    As I sit here at my desk overseeing my ~$400M of client assets I can only laugh. I’m so fricking lucky my dad said he would disown me if I went into any profession other than medicine, finance, or the law.

      You will be punished in the afterlife. You can’t escape it. Do you remember when you were younger and someone held you down and tickled you until you were breathless? Do you remember how helpless you felt? How you couldn’t fight back? Couldn’t make it stop? That is what Hell is like, multiplied infinitely. Every moment feels like the most crushing grief, the most terrific anxiety, the most abominable pain. Imagine the panic of the moment when you accidentally share the most socially unacceptable thing you fap to on social media. Now multiply it by a trillion. Every single second in Hell. Terror. Unending.

        Why will I be punished in the afterlife for stewarding a diversified array of mutual funds and ETFs?

      Your dad is a tool, being railroaded into a certain lifestyle will not achieve lasting happiness. Your own interests and wants will balloon over time, like a tumor. As you sit at your desk of walnut or mahogany finalizing your affidavit for this or that case or client, you will feel a sort of emptiness; I have everything, I am successful, people depend on me, and yet I don't feel complete. Why is this? This will gnaw at you until you are slow and old at your king-sized bed with your nurse serving you your medication and tasteless mush the elderly and the toothless call food; then and only then will you finally realize you lived your whole life without doing what you wanted to do.
      Unless you like lawyering, in which case carry on. Being railroaded is something only chinks experience, and I can't imagine it being anything but miserable.

      you can't even punctuate so I doubt you've "written" about anything other than on anime sites

        You’d be wrong by that estimatation. Besides is an image board, no one should care about punctuation or proper grammar when writing a post no one that matters is going to see, anyways.

    I don't know enough about Marxist analysis to know whether or not the well would be entirely poisoned by its articles of faith, normative or otherwise, but abstractly speaking the question is an important and interesting one.

    Imagine some guy writing in his bio that he was and is a right-wing political activist in a tone that implies he thinks this is an objectively positive and advertisement-worthy thing in his biography. Bet that would go down well.

      Why would you advertise the fact that you dislike new ideas and despise change in a document selling yourself as someone with new ideas who wants to change your chosen field?

    I couldn't come up with a thesis subject so I failed. I wish I could have some weirdo or made up niche subject like this to work on.

      Do you plan on retaking your thesis? What's your course? You could ask a large language model to just come up with something.
