Classics Club Spin # 7

Classics Club Spin #5 — which landed me with Great Expectations — was, to my surprise, a great success, and I liked reading The Iliad for Spin #6, so I’m throwing my hat into the ring again. Same list, just swapped in a new number 1.

Here’s my (randomly chosen) list, from my larger List o’ 51, for the Wheel of Fortune to choose from on Monday:

  1. Homer, The Odyssey
  2. Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D’Urbervilles
  3. Anne Brontë, Agnes Grey
  4. Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter
  5. Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer
  6. Ray Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles
  7. Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin
  8. Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart
  9. Sherwood Anderson, Winesburg, Ohio
  10. Robertson Davies, The Rebel Angels
  11. Edgar Lee Masters, Spoon River Anthology
  12. Willa Cather, O Pioneers!
  13. Wilkie Collins, The Woman in White
  14. Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook
  15. Iris Murdoch, The Sea, The Sea
  16. James Baldwin, Another Country
  17. Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose
  18. Flannery O’Connor, Wise Blood
  19. Sherman Alexie, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven
  20. Vladimir Nabokov, Pale Fire

Wish me luck!

  1. My favourite in this list is Scarlet Letter…great classic! I would be curious about Murdoch’s The Sea, the sea.
    I would dread…T. Hardy, his writing is an acquired taste. Hope you get something you like!
    Great list….
