Sonnets, William Shakespeare; Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë; Lady Chatterley’s Lover, D.H. Lawrence
Sonnets, William Shakespeare
Shakespeare's Sonnets are lyrical, haunting and often breath-taking, representing one of the finest bodies of poetry ever penned. They capture the full range of human emotions within a carefully prescribed form. Some are familiar - Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? – while others are unexpected, but together they form an extraordinary meditation on the nature of love, lust, beauty and time
Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë
Wuthering Heights is the tale of two families both joined and riven by love and hate. Cathy is a beautiful and wilful young woman torn between her soft-hearted husband and Heathcliff, the passionate and resentful man who has loved her since childhood. Emily Bronte's novel is a stunningly original and shocking exploration of obsessive passion.
Lady Chatterley's Lover, D.H. Lawrence
Clifford Chatterley returns from the First World War as an invalid; Constance nurses him and tries to be the dutiful wife. However, childless and listless she feels oppressed by their marriage and their isolated life. Partly encouraged by Clifford to seek a lover, she embarks on a passionate affair with the gamekeeper, Mellors. Through their liaison Lawrence explores the complications of sex, love and class. Written in 1928 and subsequently banned, Lady Chatterley's Lover is one of the most subversive novels in English Literature.
