Between the Acts (Oxford World's Classics)
3.  Between the Acts (Oxford World's Classics) by Virginia Woolf
The list author says:
  "Woolf's final book - perhaps The Waves will reveal itself to have been more of achievement - but all of her novels are fun, linguistically and sonically playful and she knew how to create a sentence."

Waiting for Godot: A Tragicomedy in Two Acts
5.  Waiting for Godot: A Tragicomedy in Two Acts by Samuel Beckett

Blue of Noon
6.  Blue of Noon by Georges Bataille
The list author says:
  "A morbid genius of nihilistic and surreal erotica / pornography. This book has so many important images and contexts that to ignore it is to close to tomb on liberation."

The Theban Plays (Classics)
7.  The Theban Plays (Classics) by Sophocles

English Romantic Verse (Poets)
8.  English Romantic Verse (Poets) by David Wright

The Canterbury Tales: A Selection (Penguin Popular Classics)

Antony and Cleopatra (Penguin Popular Classics)
10.  Antony and Cleopatra (Penguin Popular Classics) by William Shakespeare

Great Expectations (Oxford World's Classics)
11.  Great Expectations (Oxford World's Classics) by Charles Dickens
The list author says:
  "A phenomenal story-teller and novelist, creating characters as prolifically as Shakespeare - read much of him but start with this or Hard Times. You'll be able to forget nothing of their imagery."
Used & New from: £0.01

Labyrinths: Selected Stories and Other Writings (Penguin Modern Classics)
12.  Labyrinths: Selected Stories and Other Writings (Penguin Modern Classics) by Jorge Luis Borges
The list author says:
  "I dabbled with Kafka but ultimately decided that although he's more powerful, to read Borges in conjunction with Robert Browning leaves any reader fearfully exhausted."

Selected Poetry (Oxford World's Classics)
13.  Selected Poetry (Oxford World's Classics) by John Donne

Used & New from: £0.01

The Turn of the Screw (Penguin Popular Classics)
14.  The Turn of the Screw (Penguin Popular Classics) by Henry James
The list author says:
  "He's written better novels and novellas, but this is one of his most thought-through and unsettling. No late-October night should be without a reading of this daemonic work of art."
Used & New from: £0.01
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

Selected Poems and Letters (Penguin Classics)
15.  Selected Poems and Letters (Penguin Classics) by Arthur Rimbaud
