    Hi guys

    I'm currently taking English literature a level and we have to start thinking about four books we would like to analyse and compare. Any good literary texts you'll recommend? It would be nice if some of the themes portrayed in the books are similar.

    Just tell me the first books that come to your mind

    The Picture of Dorian Gray is a total must for all A-level Literature students imo!

    It's a great novel!

    What themes would you be most interested in analysing love?

    Thank you for the reply, i'll most definitely read that book I really don't mind about the themes, as long as all the four books I'm analysing have some themes that are similar and some that contrast. Do you have any other books in mind?

    For a summer school I went to we read The Tempest, the first two books of The Prelude by William Wordsworth and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce- they all had the theme of the development of the artist, and two of them track autobiographically from childhood.
