One of the few remnants of the literary culture that dominated Capri in the early part of the 20th century, when writers and artists flocked here to take part in its supposedly simple, unspoiled way of life. Among the expats who settled here were the British literary lions Norman Douglas and Oscar Wilde; and even Vladimir Lenin took time out from penning revolutionary manifestos to sun himself here for a few weeks in 1908. La Conchiglia, one of three bookshops run by an enterprising local publisher, is a good place to pick up antique prints and maps or secondhand books about Capri—many of them in English.
