Britannian Literature
by Lionel Alazraham

Many are the collected written works of Britannians. We love to write! We write about big things, inconsequential things, world-changing events, and even about our favorite meals. It would be a folly to try to list here, in this exhibit the plethora of all works created. Instead, we will focus on only the most widespread or profound works surviving in Britannia today.

Many of these selections you may have read before.. you might even find them on your own bookshelf. Others you might not know even existed. In either case, you're in for a treat, as also contained here is the content of each book. Where appropriate I shall make my own commentary on the subjects. So, without further ceremony, I present you the index.
