Please remember, only one nom per person. Thank you.

Kathy I nominate Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor. A little southern gothic.

Skye | 364 comments The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins? If so, it's wonderful.

Yes ma'am! We've talked about reading it before but haven't yet.

Plus, I would love to revisit it outside a classroom setting.

Skye | 364 comments I taught that particular story, and there is so much to it!

I agree, Skye. I had it in one lit class in one of my Norton Anthologies and we never were assigned it but I read it anyway. It sticks with a person.

I've been assigned this story multiple times, even did a paper over it. I have always been forced to analyze it and want to read it without having to scour every inch.

Ohhhhh! Still I'd love to hear what you learned. I know what I gathered and analyzed. But I can imagine fresh perspectives would be nice.
That's how I am with Beowulf.

Skye | 364 comments I didn't like Beowulf, although I adore Chaucer, but Beowulf is one of our oldest pieces of writing. I would adore discussing Charlotte Perkins Gilmore, though.

It's fabulous, Trinity; a good read and a feminist one, too.
