Literary Blog Hop — Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?

Literary Blog Hop

The Literary Blog Hop is hosted over at The Blue Bookcase

This week’s question:

If you could invite any three literary figures from different eras to a Sunday Dinner who would they be?
 A seemingly easy, but rather difficult question; how to narrow it down to just three?  Should I invite three like-minded writers who will keep the conversation friendly, or should I invite polar opposites who will do nothing but debate and argue?  As I’m conflict-averse, I’m inclined to have the friendly party, but I think some like-minded writers can also have lively debates and make the evening so much more interesting.

So here is my guest list:
  1. Margaret Atwood:  not only is she a fantastic writer but on the few occasions where I have had the pleasure to hear her speak she has proven to be quite witty.
  2. Virginia Woolf:  I’ve only read Mrs. Dalloway, but I think she and Atwood would have a lot to talk about.
  3. William Shakespeare:  I know this is probably a no-brainer, but I think it would be fascinating to hear him talk about his plays; and I think the other guests would have thoughts about some of his female characters, namely Lady Macbeth and Ophelia.
 Who’s attending your literary dinner party?
