Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Lots more Walter Scott is eligible - I just haven't read it.

You are a wonder - the two Scott's I have read are from the decade before. These lists are a bit like your timeline idea.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yes, the other one I've read is 1819 (Ivanhoe).


message 4: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Removed Keats, 'Lamia 1820': duplicated higher up.


message 5: by Bettie (new)

Bettie I just 'liked' your list Susanna, but it marked it up to me. What gives?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads That's weird!


message 7: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Removed #2, 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - Graphic Novel'.

'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow' by Washington Irving is already present (#4). The graphic novel version is a recent illustrated adaptation that does not include the full original text as published in 1820. The original text is preferred.


message 8: by Margaret (new)

Margaret Pinard Trilby is apparently from 1895. How do you remove a book from an inappropriate list? @goodreadslibrarians


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed for wrong decade:

The Beggar's Opera (1728)
Flowers in the Mirror (1818)
Ivanhoe (1819)
The Betrothed (1840)

This "Trilby" isn't the 1895 novel, but a play from the 1820s.

Margaret Pinard Ah! Thanks, Susanna! :)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads No problem. I confess I only gave the second page a once-over-quickly look, so if anyone sees something, do tell me.
