    Best Book of the 20th Century?

    I thought it might be interesting to learn a little about the literary tastes of tNP members. So, what in your opinion is the best literary work of the last century?

    Give separate titles for the non-fiction and fiction categories if you prefer.

    For me, there is no question about what is the best fictional literary work of the 1900's:





    As for the best non-fiction book, I'm not really sure yet, I'll have to give it some thought.


    And the best book published so far in the 21st Century, hands down, is this one:

    I am torn between Korzybski's Science and Sanity and Janov's The Primal Scream.

    Best book choice of 1900’s, * same vote. :icon_ques


    * It is interesting to note, that Tolkien made a conscious choice, in the face of his perception of a northern and western European world, which was focused and fascinated about the Mediterranean or Near-Eastern cultures’ epics and religious traditions, to offer a modern epic inspired by traditions of the North-western European world. He wrote it with the characters being sympathetic and accessible to the common English literate Christian raised European or American reader, but with the most noble characters and races being inspired by old Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Norse, Germanic, and even Finnish folklore, linguistic, and mythological elements & themes. Tolkien attempted to give the Northern lands their own modern Iliad & Odyssey, inspired by their own forgotten noble, native, pre-Christian cultures.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Interestingly enough, in searching for a name list I found, which had all the names of the characters of Rohan such as Aeowyn, and explained their predominat Old-Saxon origin, I found many sites, and articles on how ‘Racist’ ‘Lord of the Rings’ is.

    How the film depicts these different tribes and races of Whites setting aside their differences and then finally fighting the dark skinned evil together. …and so forth. So we could almost do a separate thread:

    [/begin facetious ironic tone]Does ‘Lord of the Rings’ bring racist-evil/ white racial awareness to the big screen, and force dark-skinned viewers to watch this terrible oppression? Why could the racist director not have cast more ethnic heroes and main characters?[/end facetious ironic tone] :

    Here is a link to one editorial complaining about the white/racist wickedness of ‘Lord of the Rings’ (apparently Grima Wormtongue is alive and well in real life.):


    The Racist Tapestry of Lord of the Rings! (http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2003/12/277166.shtml)

    Yeah, I like Nietzsche too, but he did not do a lot of writing in the twentieth century. :

    Indeed, the book's ability to inspire fratricidal slaughter is unparalleled.

    Indeed it was not written in the 1900s but shortly before so I puted it in too...

    Oh well have you ever read this book?
    Or are you just talking of things you heard?
    You shut better shut up and start thinking before writing shit...

    And don't start talking about 6 million Jews...
    Or I will laugh at you more than I already do

    I would personally think that the 10 million+ Ethnic Germans killed in retribution for the ill-executed portion of the war inspired by the ideology of Mein Kampf, or the 30 million+ Russians, many of whom were biologically integrateable into the upper portions of the racial hierarchy desired by the same ideology would be of more immediate concern here.

    Ultimately I would say any question of this book leads inevitably to WW2, the first phase of which might have been of benefit to the Germanic biological area, but the eventual loss of which has been tragic not only for Germans, but all peoples now oppressed by the subsequent political correctness, which ensued after the sham trials at Nuremberg.

    /… and yes, I have read the book, but plan on getting an original German copy, and reading again.

    Well i dont know if anyone here has read it but "All Quiet on the Western Front" would have to be one of the best reads i have ever had............ but i love LOTR also
    Mein Kampf would have to be the best book of the period though 1:
