Drunken Library is a portfolio of previously published prose & poetry drenched in timeless ambition. The hope is to revive and celebrate great writing from the past, showcase the finest lines of English, and encourage the reader into their own interiority — the intimate examination of knowing thyself.
The literary gathering started in 2012 once this “librarian” realized she could not bring all her favorite passages to bed. Here, she liberates the best and most inspiring excerpts from their printed boundaries so the reader can swim through the virtual stacks of the Drunken Library composed of scarcely distributed or uncommon text. Please enjoy your exploration into the drunken basement of extraordinary minds.
