I study English at university level and I get so passionate about pieces of literature that I love! I won't stop talking about it!
I love a good tragedy like Wuthering Heights, Tis a Pity she's a Whore, Othello and Gatsby....
What're your favourites?

(also my title was a typo but kinda works too!!!)

This thread is probably best in the Books, comics section. This section is for academic purposes. And you probs would get responses.

Shall I move it for you?

PS: I love morality, madness and decadent literature. So; Dorian Gray, Blindness, Therese Requin, The Outsider, Equus, The Wasp Factory, Cuckoo's Nest, American Psycho, etc!

I'm a huge fan of early Sci-Fi novels! HG Wells is my favourite author, and The time machine is my favourite novel!! Currently rereading The Island of Doctor Moreau by Wells which is equally as good!!

I studied joint honours English Literature with History at university too. I have too many favourite works of Literature but I would say my favourite works that I could read over and over again are Shakespeare's King Lear, Milton's Paradise Lost, and Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment.

Personally I have a soft spot for The Picture of Dorian Gray due to attending the same school as Wilde, but aside from my person connection/affection ], the book is exceptional! Gatsby generically is one of my favourite pieces of literature and shares many parallels with the hedonism of Dorian.
Joyces' Ulysses (personal connections to him also lol) was a challenging yet rewarding text and I try to attend Blooms day which is annually celebrated in Dublin.
I enjoyed Jeffrey Archers' Cliffton Chronicles very much and would highly recommend reading/audio book.
