Favorite Virago Modern Classics

Virago Modern Classics are "dedicated to the celebration of women writers and to the rediscovery and reprinting of their works. Its aim was, and is, to demonstrate the existence of a female tradition in literature, and to broaden the sometimes narrow definition of a 'classic', which has often led to the neglect of interesting books."

Bettie☯ Great list
:O)


message 2: by Wanda (new)

Wanda Ditto Bettie's comment. I will be reading from this list for quite some time.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Ditto the above also!

I notice, though, that for some of the books the "default" GR edition seems to have crept in, in lieu of the actual Virago edition. Should we try to amend that? (I added some of the Viragos but hesitate to hit "combine," because that would just eliminate them again and make the list switch back to GR default ...)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads That would only work, I think, if everyone delisted the default edition and voted for the Virago to replace it. And the defaults would probably creep back on eventually.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Depends on how well the list is monitored. On some other lists dedicated to specific editions it seems to be working ...

Whoever it was, thanks for adding a new link/fixing one of the old ones :-)

I've removed Ann Veronica by H.G. Wells, as it wasn't a Virago Modern Classics edition (and added Ann Veronica, which is).

Anna Kļaviņa Thank you :)

Anna Kļaviņa I really hate that we can only add 100 books >:(
