Pretty interesting stuff with interstellar battles and tribes of fish people living inside a huge whale. The title is programmatic as the story revolves thematically around truth and lies and is thus pretty modern even in that regard. SloanePaoPow July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am Beauplaisir! LOL! Ethan O.

Wolfheart Darnell July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am Wow. Everyone knows that the novel was invented by Lady Murasaki over a thousand years ago. KedjLycandros July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am 👍👍 Kenshin Himura July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am I dunno. I think the tale of genji is genius. Elizabeth Royer July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am Ahh I did my undergraduate thesis on this topic! So cool. Moss Mother July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am I've craved more Lindsay content. faboo faboo July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am Lindsay: … and ends up smothering him…me: with kisses?Lindsay: … to death.me: 😳 A Casteel July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am In my uni we were taught the first novel was the Tale of Gengi. Ditta July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am I was never shown anything of these women’s work in Australia, everything was only Shakespeare, Shakespeare, and Shakespeare. Most of the old writers I found out on my own or from friends who had gone to university, but that was only a way to Virginia Woolf. Jane Austen and Emily Bronte through the BBC show dramas and I was not a fan because of being such a tomboy, but in later years I read them all and I understand that the books are not love tales like some girls in high school think they are. TheManAndTheFriedLime July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am Great video but I don't know why you had to hate on Quixote… which was also earlier than these ladies' work according to the video BAYWATCH July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am There's one creature you overlooked, the Tulpa, ppl claim to have created their own Tulpa's with fascinating consequences BradyPostma July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am Woo! Lindsay Ellis content! My day just got better! kronosmorpheus1234 July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am Lindsay! I love you're presenting this one! Rocío Miranda July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am Don Quixote is a very wise and funny book, if you read it at the right age. It's a rich painting of 16th century Spain. Glad to have you back, Lindsay. Frost Queen July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am Nothing like the feel of a book in your ✋😁 pommeG03 July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am I love this! I took a whole class on this in college, reading several pieces by the women mentioned here, but then kind of following the novel's progression into Richardson, finally ending with Frances Burney. On a somewhat related note, I got into a weird faze a year ago where I found and read a bunch of novels written by the best-selling lady authors of in the US during the 1800s and I think they're even more underappreciated. We even have a letter from Hawthorne to his publisher complaining about "scribbling women" eating up the entire publishing industry and making it hard for "real" writers like him to make waves, referring to those now-forgotten female writers! Bryan McGucken July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am Romance novels aren't my cup of tea (though romance subplots in fantasy or mystery novels are 🙂 ) But I will fight you if you act like they aren't as legit as any other genre. There are lots of "real" literature that are also forgotten in 10 years. Most of which I also find boring, lol. Mathieu Leader July 17, 2021 at 6:52 am I guess author Barbara Cartland carried on the tradition of amatory fiction Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
