#SaveTheClassics

I was contacted by the lovely Federica, who organised a project called iClassics- Reimagining Poe, Wilde, Lovecraft and more to fund the creation of interactive apps. In order to prompt the reading of literary classics for all ages. Herself and fellow people have worked very hard for the last three in years in order to start this awesome campaign. iClassics is a magical combination of elements to read and enjoy classic literature, whether you are a book lover or someone who hasn’t yet discovered the pleasure of reading. A new way to rediscover literature.

What is your favourite classic book?

Oh, this is a hard question!! It has to be anything by Dickens, Bronte, Wilde or Fitzgerald.

If your life was a classic what would it be?

Apparently, according to a quiz I just took called ‘What Classic Novel Describes Your Life?’  I got J.R.R. Tolkien’s – Lord of the Rings.

 “Life has taken you some very strange places, and you’ve developed a taste for the fantastic in the process. You’re determined, driven, and have a penchant for the surreal”.

Which writer from the past would you like to have dinner with? 

I have to say Charles Dickens because I absolutely love his work. I could devour his novels all day, everyday. I especially adore – Oliver Twist and Great Expectations.  I was just end up staring at him in awe.

Which classic literary character best describes you?

If you haven’t already guessed, I love classics.I love them soo much! So, I could  not decide without the help of another quiz – this one called ‘Which Classic Literary Character are you?’ Upon, taking this quiz, I discovered that the quiz thought I was Jane Eyre.

“You are Jane Eyre! You may appear soft spoken but you are a little firecracker and have a lot to say! You are highly intelligent and would make a very good teacher. You are supportive of the ones you love and want to feel equal to your significant other.”

What’s the first classic that you read?

Probably, Peter Pan. I was read many children’s classics when I was younger and now while  I am at University, I have studied ‘children’s literature’ which means I am constantly surrounded by classics. YAY ME!

Which classic book could be the best gift?

Any, more people need to read classics because they are important and powerful. I have learnt a lot from the classics I have read and cannot wait to devour more in the future.

  1. I remember having read the children’s version of Oliver Twist – Charles Dickens, Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte, Little Women – Louisa May Alcott back when I was a kid! It was just last year when I read The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde and fell in love with it, it’s one of my favourite books now. At the moment I’m reading the unabridged version of Jane Eyre and I’m loving it!๐Ÿ’™

  2. I’m so glad you said Charles Dickens! Whenever I tell people I like him, they groan! But he’s such a great writer and, best of all, he was extremely prolific, so I still have tons of his books i need to get through. It’s always such a shame when you don’t have a new book from an author to look forward to.
