The literature infobox template is used to describe literary works, both written (e.g. books, newspapers) and oral (e.g. songs, poems), from any of Brandon Sanderson's stories.

Highlighted lines indicate mandatory parameters.

{{Literature}} Parameters
Parameter Description Examples
image Use this to display a relevant image hosted on the Coppermind.

See Help:Infoboxes for further details.

|image=The Elendel Daily header.png

type Use this to specify the type of the literary work.

See #Types for further details.

|type=Book |type=Opera

author Use this to specify the author(s) of the literary work, if known.

|author=[[Hoid]], [[Frost]]

language Use this to specify the original language of the literary work.


era Use this to specify when the literary work was created. This forwards to {{era}}, so it must be defined there. As a result, it cannot be a link.

|era=Era of Solitude

Use this to specify the planet where the literary work can be found.

Note: Automatically generates a link. To bypass this, use 'world.
See Help:Infoboxes for further details.


universe Use this to indicate the (connected) universe where the literary work can be found.

See Help: Infoboxes for further details.

|universe=[[Wode]] [[State]]s


When specifying a type for a literary work, stick to the most generic type only. For example, An Accountability of Virtue is both a book and a (romance) novel, but for the purposes of this template it is of the same type as Shadows Remembered - a book.

Applying a category to the type is not necessary, but if you can find one in the list of category, use it.

Note: do not use {{cat tag|books}}. Category:Books is for the books written by Brandon Sanderson, not in-world literature.
