About The Canterbury Tales
The Canterbury Tales is a collection of stories written in Middle English by Geoffrey Chaucer at the end of the 14th century. The tales (mostly written in verse although some are in prose) are presented as part of a story-telling contest by a group of pilgrims as they travel together on a journey from Southwark to the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. The prize for this...
Views on Sense and Sensibility
Pride and Prejudice may be Jane Austen’s most well-known and popular classic novel, but Sense and Sensibility has always been my favorite. The Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, are two sides of the feminine personality coin — Elinor, so serious, who must think long and deeply about everything before she speaks or acts, and Marianne, the epitome of the Romantic ideal, lovely and...

Written in 1851 Moby Dick is a classic novel by Herman Melville, in which the sole survivor of a lost whaling ship relates the tale of his captain’s self-destructive obsession to hunt the white whale, Moby-Dick.

Who is Frankenstein?
Frankenstein is a monster that was made up from the body parts and organs of the dead, by Dr. Frankenstein himself. When the monster was complete Dr. Frankenstein shouted “It’s Alive! It’s Alive!” when actually Frankenstein was never really alive, because if you look over the five characteristics of life Frankenstein does not have all of them so he could never have actually...
Moral of The Three Musketeers
I think that the moral of this story is good always triumphs. After ruining d’Artagnan’s life Milady escaped and leaved no traces behind. She through her good luck managed to kill Madame Bonacieux. However, the Three Musketeers and d’Artagnan managed to capture her and kill her.

Things i would change in The Three Musketeers
Even though I enjoyed reading the book, I want to make a few changes in the book. The first change I would make is to make the character of Milady not so evil.There are sometimes that I wished she would die a horrible death in the book. The next thing I would like to change is the musketeers’ behaviour. Even though the musketeers are highly valued in Paris, they are too proud. Whenever there is a...
Reviews on The Three Musketeers
My favourite character in this book is d’Artagnan. He left home with 11 crowns a horse and a few words of advice from his father and became the lieutenant of musketeers and became rich. In the first part of the book when he was almost penniless, Monsieur Treville wanted to lend him some money. He refused the offer and said “ I came to Paris myself with four crowns in my pocket and I would have...
A little princess
I know i said much ado about nothing was my favourite book but just remembered a little princess. I swear that book, A Little Princess is a riches-to-rags-to-riches story, in which the main character, Sara Crewe, loses everything she holds dear. When she is first sent to boarding school while her father is abroad, Sara is the darling of the teachers and the envy of all the other girls—mainly...
views on To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
This is another one of those books that I was absolutely NOT in to. Obviously and predictably, I had to read it for school,and the thought of it exhausted me. But then – I read it. I don’t know, I just loved this book. It made me realize that you don’t need exciting and dramatic and silly teenage plot lines or up-to-date material to be a good book. At that time I was pretty much living in the...
Summary of Macbeth
The play opens with Macbeth and Banquo, two of the Scottish King Duncan’s generals returning from battle when they encounter three witches in the woods. The witches tell Macbeth of how he will become the Thane of Cawdor and then the King of Scotland. For Banquo, they prophesize that he will beget the line of Scottish Kings, though he will never become king himself. The two are sufficiently...
Anonymous asked: Pride and Prejudice!
what is your favorite classic book? :)
A room without books is like a body without a soul– Marcus Tullius Cicero (via bulldawg12)
So I’m up doing homework, so I decided to post something on here. I noticed that Osarieme mentioned her favorite classic book, so I’ll do the same. Mine’s Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespear. The main reason I love the book is because of the content. I’m a sucker for romance :) I loved the beginning, the middle, but I am not a big fan of how the book ended. I know its...
All classic books into movies :s
Great classics like Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and Homer’s Iliad have been made into movies. Of course, it’s nothing new. Over the years, many fantastic movies have been based on literary classics: Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Edith Wharton’s House of Mirth, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre, Victor...
Who is dracula?
Dracula was a fictional character from a classic novel by the same name, written in 1897 by Bram Stoker. He was named for the notoriously cruel and real-life Vlad III Tepes (1431 - 76), a ruler of Walachia, whose epithet was Dracula (“Son of the Dragon”). Vlad was said to have put to death 20,000 men, women, and children by impaling them upright on stakes. Note also that Vlad the...
Anonymous asked: Do you like the book much ado about nothing. If you do why?
Anonymous asked: Some people complain about the racism in Twain's books. Does the racism of that time period bother you in the same was a modern writer making racist comments would?
View on pride and prejudice
i liked the way the book took me “back in time,” what I’m referring to is that not only was it a beautiful love story but it helps people understand the way of life of the British people of that time period. the importance of marriage to young girls, how important it was to be accomplished young lady (piano, foreign languages, etc), the being out or having a governess (remember...
