The Literature Matters Hub

What difference does literature make to the world and to people’s lives? This Hub offers a searchable library of quotations, comments, arguments, evidence and ideas about the value of great writing. You are welcome to send us your own submissions. We hope the Hub will grow as an enjoyable, fascinating and helpful resource. If the Hub helps you in making the case for literature, please let us know.
