* How far can O Livro das Comunidades be taken as a watershed in =
Llansol's work, influencing the way we read her other texts?
* How could a re-reading of O Livro das Comunidades, 30 years since its =
publication, pave the way for unexpected encounters between literature =
and other artistic fields (such as music, film, art, architecture, =
theology)?
* How could one relate, cross or interweave other authors (who may or =
may not be the Llansolian figures of Musil, Kafka, Nietzsche, San Juan =
de la Cruz, Hadewijch, etc.) in the light of O Livro das Comunidades?
* How has Llansol's work been received, before and after 1977;
* Can Llansol's writing be translated out of Portuguese and into other =
languages?
