Drunken Library is a virtual archive of previously published prose & poetry that is uncommonly read or scarcely available. Either because of its age or its printed nature, the literature of Drunken Library is collected for your usability.
The gathering began in 2012 when this “librarian” realized she could not bring her favorite passages to bed. Through Drunken Library’s stacks, she hopes to liberate great writing from its printed boundary so readers can experience the language of the past and the present. We encourage you, dear reader, to swim through our library, explore your own interiority — and begin the intimate examination of knowing thyself.
Please enjoy the drunken basement of extraordinary minds.
