I'm listening to eels, classic sad haunting stuff.
I'm reading poetry, self-loathing stuff.
I'm hearing that literature serves a psychological purpose. People can solve tension in their lives through var carious living. The Illiad ends when Achilles realizes that there is pain greater than his pain, in Priam and my teacher says "this is literature. this is what it's supposed to do. we realize that actually, it's not just us who feel this way."
I read this way. Do I feel this way?
