Why are the everyday religious beliefs of the medieval and ancient world rare in fantasy literature?

In most medieval and ancient societies there is an abundance of literary and archaeological evidence that people at all levels of society had little daily religious rituals, major festivals, and transformative ceremonies to mark important life events. We can assume with reasonable accuracy that people genuinely believed in these things as they formed part of the shared story of their communities.

When I read fantasy, I tend to see religion as rather a technocratic force with belief only in the priesthood or nameless masses and rarely a simple part of daily life for main characters. Most fantasy is set in worlds similar to what we see as the medieval and ancient world. An example would be in Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archives, where none of the main characters, as far as I remember, pray or involve the gods in the fabric of their daily lives, but some minor characters are notable for their beliefs. In historic fantastical literature, such as the Odyssey, Shahnameh, Beowulf, or The

Being poor and having taste for literature, sucks!

Unfortunately I live in a country where book its expensive as hell! Yesterday I was checking the price of some books in my wish list. And just for having a ideia of how much its gonna cost to buy at least 5 of them, I put 5 books that I wish read really bad. Its all cost in the end -putting in dolar price- 255$ for FIVE BOOKS! And they aren't luxury pieces and the only good translation available.

It's so frustrating!

EDIT: I'm getting really emotional with all this help I'm being offered right now. It's kind hard to believe because I grow up listening that books are luxury things and not necessary. And ask for help to have some books it's a frivolous thing.

(If someone want to help me with my wish list, just call me in private) Thank you!

Thank you all guys!

Why Sauron is the greatest villain in all of literature

Sauron, in my opinion, is the best villain in ALL of literature. This will just be me making points to why I love Sauron so much as a villain.

- He's competent. He knows what he's doing and doesn't mess about. "If he's so competent, why did he leave Mount Doom unguarded?" Because no one could've been able to resist the ring. Heck, Frodo himself couldnt resist putting it on, >!it was all because of sheer dumb luck that Gollum decided to commit suislide and took the ring with him!< (mainly touching upon that it was luck that led to his downfall).

- He's imposing. While I don't necessarily like the design of Sauron in the movies (mainly because i confuse him with Morgoth) just look at him. All the descriptions made of Sauron describe his charred black body, his hand with a missing finger, a tall and imposing stature compared to men, and his flaming eye few can endure.

- He's a threat from the inside as much as he is from the outside. While many may argue that he ba

[Chinese Webnovels] How Tencent (the Chinese Reddit shareholder everyone keeps talking about) is about to destroy a major part of contemporary Chinese literature

Hey everyone, here I am back with some spicy-ass Chinese Internet drama with mildly political undertones. Let's take a look at the weird shit that's happening behind the Great Firewall today! Disclaimer: I'm personally not an avid reader of webnovels myself and might get some stuff wrong. Feel free to correct me about anything.

Webnovels

Webnovels are a subset of contemporary Chinese literature published exclusively through Internet platforms. Think ArchiveOfOurOwn but not free, and for original content. My extremely subjective view of them is that they are generally speaking, terrible pulp fiction mostly written for emotional satisfaction rather than because the author is chasing the Nobel Prize for literature. However, I don't mean to demean them because they're the exact type of stuff from which really good shit will emerge, so I've been eyeing them from a safe distance for a while. They're basically the combination of what YA novels and shitty romance novels and Dan Brown boo

I want to get to know Chinese literature, help me out!

So after watching a chinese cartoon on Netflix (Scissor Seven) it dawned on me that this is the first piece of chinese art I consumed. Which seemed odd considering there are over a billion chinese and they have a beautiful and rich culture and tradition.

Types of books I love: Russian lit like Dostoevsky, Gogol, Bulgakov, Chechov, Lermontov, Pushkin, Nabokov.

Also Hemingway, Joyce, and psychology tales.

I lean almost always towards classics so if there are any well regarded Chinese classics with a good English translation, I'm down.

Thanks in Advance!

Edit: Well DAMN! This blew up way more the I expected it to lol I appreciate the amazing responses and suggestion a lot of you gave me and, well, I've got a whole lot of reading to do now.

I just completed PhD in Comparative Literature at an Ivy League; fell in love with another field (East Asian Studies) and find myself fantasizing about doing a second PhD. If anything in this world was possible and I could overcome anything that stood in my way: how would I go about doing that?

my completed PhD is in Medieval European Literature. Would I even be considered as a viable candidate for a PhD in East Asian Studies? If it is not common, do you know anybody who did? Or how you would react if you saw my application?

Answers to questions you might have:

a. The tenure-track market is oversaturated and there are very few postdocs in my field in the US. I don't want to move anywhere just to get a job and find myself teaching 4 classes per semester while directing a program of studies (i.e. bureaucracy, advising, faculty meetings, conferencing, etc.) or <insert academic horror story.> Hence I am looking at academic administration and industry jobs while we ride out of corona, and while I get a few more articles published from my dissertation materials in order to remain viable for hiring (turns out humanities PhDs are sought after if you know where to look, e.g. content development for museums).

[Literature] Laurell K Hamilton 1: Fan reactions and "Dear Negative Reader"

Initially I was going to cover this all in one post, but I quickly realized that this is going to be something that will take at least a couple of threads since this first post ended up taking a huge amount of text and needed to be revised. Ultimately the three areas I will cover via 1-3 threads will be the following:

  • Fan reactions and the โ€œDear Negative Readerโ€ post
  • Relationship drama, possible depiction in her books, and The Diva Ate Her
  • Interactions with other authors

Background

Laurell K Hamilton is an author of the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter (ABVH) and Merry Gentry (MG) series, each of which fall within the urban fantasy genre. Initially the ABVH series, her most popular series, was more of a gritty crime noir with some romance elements, but as time progressed it began to focus increasingly more on sex and romantic entanglements.

Now some explanation about the bookโ€™s plot and the main character is needed. Anita is a necromancer and state sanctioned vampire execution

My system for reading and writing during my PhD -- I've used this on about 12 feet of literature so far :)

Here's an email I've sent to doc students about the system I use. I'm posting it here so more people can access it. You can probably find substitutes for all/most these apps. Use it/Don't use it. Hope it helps you; and, good luck!

I used vBookz ($5 purchase for the language packet) as a voice reader, but now I'm using VoiceDream reader (about $10 and another $5 for a good voice -- I like US Joey) on my mobile devices. It was weird for my brain at first but after about 40 hours it just became an extra modality... I can wash dishes, go for a walk, or do laundry while listening to the app (I try to have another device ready to highlight and annotate). I've actually revamped my lounge area so I can put down a yoga mat and do some stretches/exercises while I 'read'. Dense work I would do at about 180 wpm with the pdf open on a device so I can look at it often, I often skip back a page if it seemed important or just switch it off and just read normally. Other readings can go anywhere from 2

I had my doubts because it is so far from what I would normally play. But seeing as it was free to play and not a 60+ hour game, I figured 'eh what the heck' and installed it.

I've finished DDLC and my friend was right about two things. 'Play it' and not giving out any info beforehand about the game. Because the game is at its best when going in blind.

For all my patientgamers out there, go play it if you haven't already. It's free, so no need to wait for a sale. If you have played it before I'm curious to see what your experience was.

Looking for epic fantasy recommendations for a fan of Tolkien, Beowulf, the Mabinogion, Tennyson, medieval and ancient literature etc.

This might be the wrong place to ask, but maybe there's someone out there who knows modern fantasy but also gets where I'm coming from. I'm a bit of an elitist bastard, so let's just get that out of the way.

I really find the vast majority of modern fantasy to be extremely trite and surface level, concerned mostly with modern political movements, trope subversion, wacky world building exercises, or pure aestheticism, and it mostly reads like fan-fiction, dungeons and dragons, or video games. Not to say any of those things are particularly bad in and of themselves (maybe fan-fiction), but it's just not what I'm looking for. I'm reading Malazan right now, which I'm enjoying for the most part, but it's not comparable to the Lord of the Rings or the Silmarillion (admittedly isn't trying to be, and, funnily enough, has roots in roleplaying sessions). I've never been able to find anything remotely like Tolkien when it comes to contemporary fantasy (and I'm more inclined to consider Tolkien'

[TOMT] [literature] [pre-1950s] What is the name of this childrenโ€™s book? Asking for my grandma

What is the title of this childrenโ€™s book from pre-1950s?

My grandma and I are having the hardest time remembering the title of this childrenโ€™s book.

The plot: A family is having trouble living in a one-room house so they add a room to get more space and they keep adding more rooms for activities like roller skating, art, etc. They end up with a house that sprawls over hill and dale, and they canโ€™t find each other anymore, so they end up getting rid of rooms to be closer to each other until they all live together again.

We remember it having black and red graphics, done in 1920s-style illustrations, but could be from any time pre-1950s.

Please help! Weโ€™ve exhausted our googling capacity and we need to know!

Edit: Weโ€™re in the US, and my grandma says that Wanda Gagโ€™s illustration style in Millions of Cats reminds her of this book (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millions_of_Cats).

CMV: Black history month should be abolished and replaced with better integrated education about influential historic black people in normal history education and literature

I think this thought came into my mind today on International Nurses Day as it happens. I noticed that everyone on Twitter was going on about how Florence Nightingale should not be celebrated as much as Mary Seacole, a black nurse from the same era, and I kind of agree. The problem comes when people are trying to hamfist black history in over other history, which is the thing I feel BHM does. It ironically segregates black history from our own, admittedly very white person focused history education and literature (I am not trying to be a social justice warrior here, this is just what I genuinely believe to be true so debate me in the comments if you'd lik).

I'm not denying that many influential black people have been ignored by historians and left out of history education, but Black History Month isnt the right way to educate people about these amazing historical figures. We should just integrate them better into what people are learning at school and other historical sources (e.g. ne

What is the most profound line in Nepali lyrics/literature you have come across that struck you, either emotionally, philosophically, or any other manner?

I haven't consumed Nepali music and literature as much, but I find Bartika Eam Rai lyrics to be pretty intense as compared to widespread cheesy lovey-dovey stuff in the Nepali mainstream scene, which is nauseating to me. For instance, " เคšเคพเคนเคพเคฐเฅเค›เฅŒเค‚ เค—เคฒเฅเคฒเฅ€ เคธเคฎเฅเคเคจเคพเคฎเคพ เคšเคฟเคนเคพเค‰เคเค›เฅŒเค‚ เคฌเคพเคฆเคฒเคฒเคพเคˆ เคเค•เฅ‹เคนเฅ‹เคฐเฅ‹, เค•เคฟเคจ เคฌเฅเคเฅ‡เคจเฅŒ เค†เคœเคธเคฎเฅเคฎ เคธเคฎเคฏ เคคเฅเคฏเฅ‹ เค—เคฏเฅ‹ เค…เค—เคกเคฟ เคฌเคข เคจ " resonates with me in a lot of ways and renders me nostalgic. I would love to learn if some Nepali writing pieces had the same effect on you.

I'm about to graduate with a degree in German Literature and Language, but I truly suck at German.

I lived in Germany for two years, got my B2, and I've been back in the US at school since then. I've read a lot of German books, I've read academic literature and government documents in German, I can understand spoken and written German quite well, but goddamn I can't write or talk for shit.

If I don't move back to Germany, I'm 100% gonna lose my German.

[Literature] Laurell K Hamilton 2: Personal and professional relationship theories/drama

Inthe last post I discussed the fan drama. A good question was brought up, specifically as to why the disgruntled fans didnโ€™t stop reading. I canโ€™t speak for every fan, but I would imagine that part of it was because of how Hamilton responded to criticism. Rather than acknowledging their feelings without saying that the direction she was taking the books was bad, she wrote a blog post that most saw as insulting. It wasnโ€™t that they didnโ€™t want to be challenged, just that they felt that the new turn in content was too much of a change from the previous format. I think that some also kept reading and commenting because of a hope that things would eventually get better and a balance would be made between the graphic sex and the previous crime noir format.

How Hamilton responded to this is kind of an example of how she deals with others in general, at least with how some public percep

What literature do Russian students study?

In America we have a few books that a lot of schools make kids read, they are considered classics, a lot of them being of British origin since America is kinda young and doesn't have the years and years of classical authors that our origins did (or so I tell myself) we have books such as,

1984

Edgar Allan Poes poetry

Animal Farm

Beowulf (I think I spelt that correctly)

Moby Dick

I was wondering if Russia has a system or selection of books that high schoolers or middle schoolers are required to read? I imagine Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky, or Pushkin, are required material? these are authors ive found myself interested in reading as I studied Russian history/culture. I will admit and say that I haven't actually read Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky yet, as I wanted to save them for when I know the Russian language well enough to actually take them in the native language which I feel is respectful. I have translated some of Pushkins poetry though.

I wonder if any literature would be good for s

The notion of "persistence" in literature

I am working on my dissertation and one of the important aspects I would like to explore is the idea of literature from the past being almost a spectral identity that haunts and influences the literature from the present. My research advisor recommended me to look into the idea of "persistence" in literature, as in, an afterimage that remains in the eye. However, I haven't really found anything that seemed relevant to my particular interests (a lot of philosophy and ophtalmological research). Does anyone here happen to know what my advisor is talking about and have a recommendation for reading?

Clorinda - warrior women in history and in ancient literature

I am quite passionate about warrior women in history and in ancient literature.
Among them there is one that I particularly like: Clorinda. I am not even sure why, although I have some the hypothesis. The fact is that I don't like the Jerusalem Delivered and even less Torquato Tasso. The silliness often runs wild in this book. For instance Clorinda was born from Ethiopian parents but hey she is Caucasian. What a miracle. And for my agnostic ass doesn't suits well that she converts just when she is about to die. BUT I still love this woman and I like to read about her.

And here I am arriving to the point: her armour. She is being portrayed in a lot of paintings but often she doesn't wear an armour. She is supposed to be the best warrior of the Saracens but she fights in graceful garments. I wish I could draw decently so I could give her a bit of justice. Anyway here a little gallery of how this warrior woman has b

I found out about Karagarga a few months ago when I was looking around private trackers that offer decent rips of more obscure cinema. One thing I didn't realise though was that the site doesn't just offer rips of films, there is also literature.

Is there much going on there or is that part of the tracker pretty dead?

[Literature] The Anne Rice affair

It looks like a lot of you were entertained by the last post and some mentioned Anne Rice. There was also some interest in Elloraโ€™s Cave, so Iโ€™ll try to cover that as well at some point. Thereโ€™s also some other negative review meltdowns to cover, one of which is the Greek Seaman fiasco and the one surrounding a cozy mystery author known for her psychic detective series. But this one is all Anne Rice.

Background:

Most of you have likely heard about Anne Rice at some point in time, if not read some of her books. Rice is the author of the popular Vampire Lestat novels, as well as a plethora of various other series. At one point she re-discovered Catholocism and focused solely on writing some religious books, before becoming disillusioned with religion. Her work has always been one of those like it or donโ€™t type of deals, but thereโ€™s no denying that she was fairly iconic in the goth and horror fandoms. Heck, the 1994 film Interview with the Vampire was the breakthrough role for Kirst

Satan is probably the most mischaracterized and misunderstood character in all of literature.

Basically title. Imagine turning over a THIRD of the hosts of heaven? Thatโ€™s more than likely TRILLIONS of souls. Trillions of practically PERFECT beings that chose to rebel against their creator... dude. Our man Satan must have been spewing some real shit to turn over that many people. That or he uncovered some omega conspiracy theories concerning god... All in all, calling him the embodiment of all evil always seemed a bit strange to me.

[literature request] What are the best peer-reviewed journal articles and books arguing in favor of long-term evolution (millions of years, never observed) as a valid extrapolation of short-term evolution (tiny changes, empirically observed) to explain the origin of new complex organs and systems?

Basically the title. But as an illustrative and hard example (?), take the evolution of some crucial systems such as the vascular and respiratory systems: blood, veins, heart, lungs, how oxygen is transported to other cells, etc. I would love some high quality, peer-reviewed literature explaining how such vital and complex systems could've evolved as an accumulation of the tiny changes we observe today (i.e. that we can extrapolate these tiny changes we observe today as a mechanism, to generate vascular and respiratory systems over the long haul, for example).

Edit: please make an effort to provide links to serious peer-reviewed articles or books, hopefully explaining why you recommend them.
