          If you can only read a language, and haven’t done any other input or output, then you may as well buy a translation because you haven’t actually internalised any of the language and are merely translating in your head by word association as you read along.

    Nothing of good literary quality were written in German. Especially an unformed blob known as Faust, wich is a peak of german kitsch-ridden mentality. I kinda agree on the other two.
    German language is unsuitable for literature in general.

    There's three languages that great for it, in fact, a renowned linguist Roman Jakobson wrote:

    >“Take English, French and Russian. English has extreme flexibility for all intellectual purposes, the preciseness and the possibility to be succinct and extremely clear:

    >“French has fantastic stylistic variety, which permits such an enormous variety of prosaic writers and poets who are entirely diverse and who have, each of them, a hypnotic force. If you compare, from a point of view of verbal esthetics, scholarly works written in English and French, how much stronger is a book by a Levi‐Ctrauss than most of the scholarly books written in English.

    >“Russian has a completely different property—its hybrid character. It has two entirely different constituents—the Church Slavonic and the vernacular. This hybridity creates the possibility of enormous variation in presentation of ideas. You can play such a scale of elements, which go to higher and higher abstractness, and then you can immediately change to the most colloquial way. An English author loses much less being translated into Russian than vice versa.”

    And picrel is the words of the one who often being considered as one of the greatest writers in german language. Try to guess

            It's a memoir about Russian role-playing community (live-action Tolkien fandom, picrel) from Saint Petersburg in the 1990s. Something like Welsh's "Trainspotting" or Ellis' "The Shards", but about actual events. A very enjoyable read (I have read it twice) and very atmospheric.

            No it unfortunately is not
            Personally I had to finish French for Reading by Karl Sandberg and then spend a few months aimlessly reading things here and there, some podcast transcripts, some wikipedia articles, some extracts from French readers, etc which was about a years worth of work
            When I started reading Harry Potter it was absolutely brutal because of how little vocabulary I had and at that point I had an anki deck of 1500 words or so although I don't put words that are obvious cognates in my deck

            Watch this video if you want to get the theory as to why Harry Potter may be a good choice for you but it's not a 'find out this ONE amazing tip which will make you a fluent French reader in 3 weeks!' kind of thing
            Anyway if I could do it all over again, I would read French for Reading and then brute force Harry Potter instead of dallying a bit
            The key is to minimise the time that dictionary look ups take for you, a good e-reader program on a computer can do this
            Also make anki sentence cards with the sentences containing words you want to learn

        Most Russian novels lose a lot of soul in translation to English, they almost feel dumbed down.

    ITT: morons trying to outpseud each other.

    German, English, French and Russian are all excellent literary languages and people who are not fluent in a language can hardly judge their literature. Hölderlin is untranslatable without great loss - just like Mallarme. Quite much of German literature is also also barely known outside the country for example. Every educated German knows Hauptmann, Stefan George, von Straßburg, von der Vogelweide, Lessing, and so on, but barely any Anglo does. / How many people making fun of Russian have read the Silver Age poets?

      Russian is nothing before the 18th century, that goes without saying, so it's not really comparable to the major European languages.
      German is a weird case, their medieval literature is certainly more provincial than Provence, Italy, and probably even northern France, but there does seem to be something there, I'll definitely try to give it a fair chance when I get deeper into that period. Between the middle ages and the Romantic period, though, they did nothing. Personally I would put them behind Italy for this reason, Italy having been ascendant in the medieval/Renaissance transitional period, but that's only because I don't have a ton of interest in Romantic stuff. Spain's output is so concentrated in the one period, but it was a very important period, so I'd probably have to put them above Germany for pre-Romantic accomplishment as well.
      But as

      >German is a business language.

      What language is the de facto international lingua franca in this soulless business world?

      Which language is effectively necessary to study music, Greek/Egyptian history, and basically any European folklore?

        You shouldn't ignore German literature from the 20th century onwards either.
        >the middle ages and the Romantic period, though, they did nothing.
        This is absolutely untrue, but as I already said, every educated German knows Lessing but no Anglo does. Also mind you that Sturm und Drang/Weimarer Klassik (Goethe, Schiller, Wieland) were before Romanticism.

        Calling Medieval German literature "provincial" also irritates me, as it implies that Vogelweide, Eschenbach (Parzival), Straßburg (Tristan und Isolde) or the Nibelungenlied were inferior to the Medieval literature of other European countries.

          It's provincial because everywhere outside of Provence, Italy and France was provincial to one degree or another during that time, because that's where real poetic development occurred (and only the prior two were particularly refined). Two of the three individual works you cite are obviously just versions of French originals. What that says about the actual quality of it I don't know, but personally I prefer purer and more original forms of most stories when the different forms in question are reasonably comparable (i.e. unless it's something like Shakespeare where the plot was only sketched out in an Italian tale and he filled in all the poetry and lifelike detail).
          Not going to address your other points because they're insignificant nitpicks and I refuse to play into it. If you have some minor exception or semantic point that you think you can score points with, fine, but you're going to have to explain why it actually matters before I'm willing to engage.
          Not even trying to insult you, most cultures are peripheral, if you were Laotian or Lithuanian or Bolivian or whatever you'd be far worse off in this regard. Nor am I trying to say German culture is "bad", this is strictly a discussion of *relative* importance.

        that's really interesting, how come Russian exploded into so much literature after not producing anything for pretty much all of it's history instead of like 2 medieval epics 600 years prior?

          Because they were exploring and defining their identity as a culture - that's the necessary stimulus for any culture to produce true classics.

          Printing press coming there later. German. And all language pretty much. Exploded with the printing press. Russia started to have great writing with the rise of Peter the Great. He westernized Russia and promoted the printing press and reformed the Russian alphabet. This caused the birth of Russian literature and classics. German is the same case, like I mentioned, but they invented the printing press. So there wasn’t the condition of it coming later compared to others.

          Russians were a pretty stupid isolated nation (as they are even now). With help of British rifles they seized the Eastern lands (there were no serious rivals there) and resources and began to hire teachers from Europe. The first opera in Russian was written by an Italian, for example.

    >German
    Come on. Only Goethe is good. German is for those who like bad philosophy like Kant, Hegel and pomo crap.
    German is a business language.

    If you want good philosophy you learn Greek and Latin.
    If you want good literature, English and Russian.

      What language is the de facto international lingua franca in this soulless business world?

      Which language is effectively necessary to study music, Greek/Egyptian history, and basically any European folklore?

    Isn't German literature just Nihilists and Pomo stuff?

      No. There’s a lot of romanticism and statist writing to them. Also what is Pomo? Never heard of it before.

      This and Russian. Leaving out Spanish and Italian though is just kind of wrong if you throw French in there.

    The French have marketed a lot of their mediocre literature just like they marketed bottled water or handbags sewn by southeast asian slaves as the highest attainable luxury.
    Germans on the other hand had always a problem with marketing but produced quality stuff that remained and remains unknown. Though admittedly a lot of the best German literature is quite hermetic, mystics like Eckhart or Boehme...

      Fomenko laments that the best early writers on Russian history were all Germans.

    True, but I’ve discovered that I really like Japanese literature so I now I don’t know if I should abandon my French and German studies for Japanese. It’s all shallow aesthetics in Japanese, I know. But I still like it. Guys like Kawabata and Mishima wrote very pleasant little novels.

      You need to have an actual lust for knowledge of Japan's history and society to properly enjoy their literature, and you'll probably eventually need to learn 漢文 and 万葉仮名 if you really wan't to delve balls deep. I'd suggest that you get to a decent level in German and French first and then try out Japanese later.

      I'm 34 and I frogpost everyday. I'm also high IQ an read in 3 languages. If you don't like the frogs you can frick off to reddit. Cope

      Frogs are the mark of the beast and the destruction of IQfy. If anything you should be hating on it because it is deeply tied in with the newbie waves which killed IQfy and the rest of the internet too, same with wojak.

        Not him but I've been on IQfy since the beginning and frogposting is fine. It's actually the election touristBlack folk who associate it with "alt righters" or some gay shit like that. To everybody else it's just a normal image. Basedjaks were annoying for a while but even they've settled down. Being mad at random reaction image trends makes you a moronic homosexual.

          >Being mad at random reaction image trends makes you a moronic homosexual.
          I'm mad at the ones spamming them, which all happen to be underage homosexuals that came from 2016 onwards. As for wojaks, there's literally an entire highly popular site full of children made for the express purpose of sharing them and raiding various imageboards, including IQfy. IQfy as it is is just a dried up corpse now, thanks to the gaymergate and election bullshit.
          Also, the fact that wojaks and pepe are all the rage among literal instagram using third world children(I have to deal with those everyday, face to face, by the way) is good reason enough to stop using them. You wouldn't eat your soup knowing full well that somebody shat in it, would you?
