My tastes are fairly eclectic. If I had to name a single novel as my favourite it would probably be Titus Groan
by Mervyn Peake (who I think has already made an appearance on this thread).
For my degree I'm currently working on the Victorians, and from my reading so far I have enjoyed Dickens's Great Expectations
, Hard Times
, and Bleak House
. I'm not a great George Eliot lover, but I enjoyed Silas Marner
and The Mill on the Floss
. I love Hardy, particularly Jude the Obscure
and Tess of the D'Urbervilles
, and Henry James is a bit of a legend as well. Gerard Manley Hopkins would probably be my favourite Victorian poet.
Outside my degree, I really like Russian literature. I'm in awe of Tolstoy (before he went all spiritual...), and Dostoyevsky, of course (I hope I spelt that correctly!). Solzhenitsyn has been excellent more recently...
