Edgar Allan Poe

[SHARE] Your favorite english/american Literature

why? cuz he's just simply a lunatic writer whose writings can make you shiver with the dark atmosphere he built. My fave story of his is a short story called The Tell Tale Heart...

ps: he's also said to be the first writer who wrote detective stories.

Nicholas Sparks is awesome.kiss

hmmm....it's challenging to name one so, here's my list of favorite writings:

D.H. Lawrence - Lady Chatterly's Lover
I think this novel is banned/ have its publicity limited. A LADY had an affair with her gardener in that era, wow!!!!

Charles Dickens - A Christmas Carrol - no further explanation, classic!

Ernest Hemingway - The Old Man and The Sea
Another classic.....and the author committed suicide, now that's dark!

F. Scott Fitzgerald -The Great Gatsby
Best described America in the 20's - party, party, party....!

Mark Twain -The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
It's a thick novel but it pays....and you can learn unique form of English...

Sophocles - Oedipus Rex
a play that defines tragedy, in this case, a Greek tragedy

Edgar Allan Poe - The Cask of Amontillado
buried the one who insulted you, ALIVE - that's a revenge and totally dark!


I think I'll stop for now.....

My favourite authors:

1. Ken Follet. Ken Follett (born 5 June 1949) is a Welsh author of thrillers and historical novels (quoted from wikipedia). I love all of his works. You could drown in the intensity of the story. LOVE IT!
2. Sidney Sheldon. Sidney Sheldon (February 11, 1917 – January 30, 2007) was an Academy Award-winning American writer. (Yg nulis Charlie's Angels).
3. Enid Blyton. Enid Mary Blyton (11 August 1897 – 28 November 1968) was an English children's writer also known as Mary Pollock. She was one of the most successful children's storytellers of the twentieth century. I love The Famouse Five (we know it as Lima Sekawan).
4. J.K Rowling. Who doesn't??
5.Lewis Carol. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (pronounced /ˈdɒdsən/, DOD-sən; 27 January 1832 – 14 January 1898), better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll (/ˈkærəl/, KA-rəl), was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer. Who doesn't know Alice in Wonderland?
6. Charlotte Brontë (21 April 1816 – 31 March 1855) was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters, whose novels are English literature standards. My most favourite book from her is Jane Eyre.
Yang lainnya: LUPA.

The bold ones actually explain the underlined ones. Wish I could draw an arrow to point it, but I couldn't hammer: But i don't get what 'burnt into' means. Need to google it, but I'm so lazy anyway.
Cool choice of words and I must say your sentence forming is cool too!

*so sorry not to use poetical language. I am just an average English speaker/writer hammer: don't want to fry my own brain try to create some difficult sentence*

and i don't read a lot either hehe... D

shopie's world you mean?
ya, i love that piece too...skilled author; he is able to spiced the plot with elements of mystery and dole out the philosophy in a gentle and accessible way. great novel, great story...yet, intriguing at certain level somehow i think.

i see...poe's fan hehe D
ya, i read shopie's world quite sometime ago too...and it took me nearly three months to finish it--as i can recall. the words just didn't get into my head easily D

anyway, discussing about a story or a poem has always been a subtle moment to embrace. to hear and to find new perspectives...it's interesting don't you think? thus, ya...i'll try to find him...
thanks.

would you please to understand how poetical we should use in every words here..

i believe we are all aware of that gan hehe... :d
being poetic is great...but only if we are able to; or at least at the level we are into...otherwise, we will only make ourselves sound odd.

i just think that we should not force ourselves to be poetic.
to boast...it would only bring ourselves humiliation...

in fact, not all englishmen are able to be such poetic as poe or twain.
if you only know what i mean \)

yet, whatever it is...never stop learning. things will unfold themselves before us eventually.
i guess...hehe D

And those answers using 'opus' and 'more burnt' words, can you give a 'more-down-to earth' replies ?
If you're really into English or American literatures, you should have one or two and please use proper English to get your point across.

I, for myself, don't really like American/English literatures, but I love its language very much. Regarding English literatures, the only name came up to me was William Shakespeare
