Most Poetic Book Titles
Silly and funny titles are way cool, but this list for titles you think are just beautiful in themselves. Even if the book itself is not so hot (or you haven't read it!), the title is memorable.

message 1: by Brixton (new)

Brixton I like this list. It is the only one I keep returning to when I am reminded of titles I didn't see on list or as such titles randomly occur to me.


message 2: by Reese (new)

Reese I'm also enjoying visiting this list now and again. The choices reveal an astonishing diversity of definitions of "poetic."


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I combined duplicates; hopefully this corrected the problem.


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Virender wrote: ""Wuthering heights" is not a poetic title."

It sure sounds poetic to me and always has. It evokes gothic images.


message 5: by jeanie (new)

jeanie How are books "scored"?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The book you rank first gets a hundred points, the one you rank second, ninety-nine, and so on down through one hundred books.


message 7: by jeanie (new)

jeanie Ok. Now I see. Thank you.


message 9: by Dermo (new)

Dermo I wonder who can add to this list. An awful lot of awful on it. Hemingway and Steinbeck are both very good at the poetic titles though.


message 10: by jeanie (new)

jeanie Anyone can post to it. Perhaps what is poetic to one is not poetic to another? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, afterall.

Remember too that (for this list) it is only how good the titles sound that counts. The book itself could suck eggs, and still be worth including if the title is cool sounding. As for the actual results, well, that's democracy, I guess.


message 12: by Christie (new)

Christie I think you've made a lot of great choices here. I have to say though that some are poetic because the titles are taken directly from lines of poems! Not sure how "Jaws" fits though. lol


message 13: by Dahlia (last edited Feb 05, 2014 10:03AM) (new)

Dahlia Some of these titles are quite interesting, some of them truly wonderful; but some of them are just plain silly. I'm surprised to see them on the list.


message 14: by Julie (new)

Julie I didn't realize how much I love Alice Walker's titles until I went through my book list to add to your list.


message 15: by Dana (new)

Dana Who put Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin on this list? :( I love Charlie Brown, but someone thinks they're way too funny. But An Artist of the World and If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things are excellent choices. Wow, who knew there were so many definitions of "poetic"?
