This is the most successful example of genreslop that tricked people into thinking it's literature.
>>
>>23065234
agreed
>>23065238
no, you're a retard. It's a great novel & Tartt is a solid writer.

Amazing how a book can make me nostalgic for something I've never experienced.
>>
>>23065238
Is it a future candidate for the western canon? No, but it’s a good novel with interesting characters, well-established atmosphere, and neat connections to classical works and ideas. Not every book has to be either genreslop or timeless Literature™. What genre would TSH even be? And don’t say Dark Academia because that’s not a genre of literature and this book preceded that aesthetic anyway.

>What genre would TSH even be?
Young adult fiction.

>>23066072
That’s a target audience, not a genre. YA itself has genres (YA dystopia, YA romance, YA mystery, etc.)

hey that isn't by procopius

a girl on an app thought I was referring to this when I said I was reading the secret history.

It should be against the rules to reuse titles
>>
The book has been credited as popularizing the growth of the dark academia literary sub-genre

>book sounds interesting
>look up the characters
>all male
>suddenly lose all interest
I don't know why this happens every tiem, I'm not even a feminist femcel

>>23066017
No. The canon is already closed.

Also, what the fuck happened to this board? You idiots really think this, admittedly decent, book is worthy of the canon? LOL.
>>
>>23068415
They’re not all male
>>
>>23067168
I think you’re the first person I’ve ever seen mention this. I’ve wondered for a while if the title is a reference to Procopius. There are some similarities I would say, particularly between how Henry is portrayed relative to Justinian.

Yea you're just a tranny
