Bill: You didn't ask! But I'm telling you anyway.

---(early teens) Look Homeward Angel, Thomas Wolfe. (later catching up with the foolish amputation of the glorious first Civil War section by the renowned editor, Maxwell Perkins.)

-- (college) Ulysses, James Joyce. Part of a course by Hofstra's William Hull. A must re-read every 5 years, entire new passages revealed. Once caught Colleen Dewhurst reading Molly Bloom's soliloquy on Bloomsday at Symphony Space, NYC.

Great feature. GV

Bill,

I was happy to see that my favorite book, Wuthering Heights, was mentioned in the above comments. I have been mesmerized by Emily Bronte's novel ever since I read it. I seldom read a book more than once. However, I have read Wuthering Heights five times.

The relationship between Heathcliff and Catherine is intriguing. There is a lot of hate in the story, but love seems to conquer everything and everyone. The characters' personalities in the novel are very strong and interesting.

My fellow English teachers could not believe that a rough and tumble guy like me has a soft side and loves a noel like this. I can't explain it, but after reading all of the novels I have read, Wuthering Heights is my favorite. Could have a sixth reading coming soon!
