    Some eastern civilizations for you.

    Islamic Golden Age (Arabized Persia) – One Thousand and One Nights
    China – Four Great Classical Novels
    India – Gita
    Mesopotamia – Epic of Gilgamesh

    I haven’t read any Egyptian works to pass judgement on them.

    Agree completely on Greeks, Romans, Catholics, and Moderns. Reading the Illiad and the Odyssey together it’s pretty clear that they are part of a larger structure. Eh, who cares. We’ll never hear the rest of it.

    Pilgrim’s Progress= Protestants.
    The City of God= Catholics.
    Where does Chaucer fit in? Just Englishmen?
    How about Don Quijote for the Spanish?

      Disagree with Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Nietzsche gets misinterpreted as a nihilist though he isn’t. In my opinion his work is directed at creating a TT Aristocracy.

    Hey Ive been reading your blog for a few months now. You have some really great ideas and I love what you, Koanic, Tex and the commentors put out. Its fantastic and always provides some mental stimulation. I never really felt compelled to comment until today though.
    Id hardly call this a shitpost. I would include City Of God with the Catholic tradition. Also the listlessness of the characters in The Sun Also Rises reminds me of the modern era. The Quran is probably closer to tribal Arabia than it is the Ottoman Empire. None of this blog is shit, its interesting, keep posting.

      Dunno, I’m not familiar enough with their history to even know if they’ve had a golden era. It seems that their culture ended completely with the Bolshevik uprising, but they seem to have had a good thing going in the 19th century.

    Eastern Orthodoxy – The River of Fire, Alexandre Kalomiros. All Christians should read it. FREE version:

    Gnosticism – The Mystical Qabalah, Dion Fortune. I dislike her freudianism but overall it is a great work. FREE version:
