This is the most successful example of genreslop that tricked people into thinking it's literature.

Amazing how a book can make me nostalgic for something I've never experienced.

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.

Young adult fiction.

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

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.

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.
