This is not a love letter
"I read over your letters again and again, and am continually taking them up as if I had just received them; but alas! They only serve to make me more strongly regret your absence: for how amiable must her conversation be, whose letters have so many charms?" Pliny the Younger, Epistulae, 6.7 [Translation William Melmoth 1915]
Is this a love letter? Or is it something else entirely?

Interculturalism stands at the interface between the individual, local groups, societies and cultures. These compete, conflict, co-exist and trigger reactions and responses on a number of levels including the social, the economic, the political and the personal. These are reinforced through language, the media, cultural events, social institutions and migration policies. Amidst all these dynamic and static forms of interaction, identities are built and consolidated.

Multimodal novels stipulate conceptual shifts in our understanding and experience of literature, according to Wolfgang Hallet. Though the genre label "multimodal novel" is a recent coinage, graphic resources such as experimental typography and layout, images and illustrations, which contribute to multimodal aesthetics, have appeared in novels for centuries. Samuel Richardson, Laurence Sterne, and Edgar Allan Poe utilized the expressive properties of typeface and layout in their narratives. In the early twentieth century, practitioners of the historical avant-garde including Andre Breton and F.T. Marinetti also produced multimodal narratives.
