Literature Returns to Tradition

Featuring timeless classics in high language, literary traditionalism promotes the true and the beautiful and rejects the dull, nihilistic modernism of the 20th century.

We advocate for a return to Christian morality and harbor a deep reverence for the Western canon.

On these pages we’ll be offering classic stories and poetry from classic authors like Nathaniel Hawthorne and Christina Rossetti.

We’ll also feature books by new authors, including the literature of Hoquessing founder Claudio R. Salvucci.


“Lovers of classic tales will really appreciate the poetry and the plot. The poem reads easily and naturally with the flow and flavor of the ancient epics.” -Favorite Resources of Catholic Homeschoolers
