I know those lists are as irresistible as they are futile. Here’s MY list of the essentials of English literature, familiar classics and (re)discoveries of great works which I highly recommend. I can only guarantee that my list is idiosyncratic and personal… If you don’t have enough time to read, you can watch the films adapted from the classics (in English of course!). Anyway, you'll find below the list of Authors to help you find the crème de la crème and my selection of the must read for each of them…. Enjoy and do not hesitate to ask me questions or share your opinions and feedback with me. Happy reading!
