bibliopolis's Journal

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
This community is for everyone who loves literature. All messages should be in English.

You are free to discuss all sorts of literature, classics/postmodern works, canon/margin, western world/third world, their authors, criticism, and literary theories. Posts on chicklit, fantasy and other non-literary genres will not be tolerated. If you want to talk about that, I suggest you go to bibliophiles or one of the many other book-related communities on LJ. If you are not sure if I'll consider it relevant, just explain why you think it is.

I've mostly put my own interests in the list of interests, I'll add the authors and topics that you bring up to the list.

Have fun!
