notes from the underground

this book is actually fricking hilarious and massively entertaining while setting the stage for the next 150 years that proceeded it. what a masterpiece of a novella. i feel bad for anyone who got filtered by the first half. should be read as an intro to nietzsche.

      It was a safe mechanism in media reviewing site so that anyone will see them as an intellect in digesting an intellectual media (or simply: art) that they're just consoomed. Nobody on the internet would go and arguing with someone who wrote a review that a cinema or literature is 'hilarious'. This is happened on letterboxd all the time, there's always someone who wrote a review about how 'hilarious' the movie was, even though it wasnt and its not the point of the movie at all. But nobody would bother to argue them about it and that person could probably gain internet validity or even internet point without having to take a risk getting their review criticized by someone who are actually more intellectual than they are, simply by saying "this thing is hilarious" and elaborating that hilarious part instead of writing an actual review about it.
      Its crazy to learn what people are willing to do for the sake of their existence on the internet

      not appreciating when something is supposed to be funny is a sign of something

      notice how nobody ever has anything to say about this book except for 'literally me'

      Dostoevsky was thinking of me when he wrote it

      can you morons actually say anything about the book?

        The philosophic themes are far too subtle for a work like this and people get caught up with the incel guy seething at the other guy who barely thinks of him at the dinner.

        tl;dr Humans beings like suffering and problems, we won't change or care to change. If everything goes, anything can be allowed, laws and such don't really mean much. We are our own problem and we are proud of it.

    "For forty years together it will remember its injury down to the smallest, most ignominious details, and every time will add, of itself, details still more ignominious, spitefully teasing and tormenting itself with its own imagination."

      My favorite part is when he cucks out like a frickin hormonal little pu$$y and gives Liza the money because he's too much of a b***h ass nu66a to accept love. That shit always makes me smile because it's nice when a character is relatable

      Hey that sounds like something I would do haha.

    Yeah, people always underrate Dostoevsky as a comedy writer. Fyodor Karamazov is a spectacular character

    Notes is hilarious in its criticism of the underground man. Most people here read it as an endorsement of le sad incel rather than what it really is: over one hundred pages of (rightly deserved) pointing and laughing. This book is such classic because it demands self reflection; how much of the underground man applies to you?

      that's what i'm saying! even at the end of the book he holds up the mirror to the reader and goes "I know you relate to me. I know what you've been thinking throughout this whole thing. you're just too much of a pussy to take it all the way like I did. surrender to the call of the void."

      and then he goes "i'll stop writing here, goodbye" but he doesn't stop - he's literally a guy angry posting online it's incredible.
