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:
- 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.
- Virginia Woolf: I’ve only read Mrs. Dalloway, but I think she and Atwood would have a lot to talk about.
- 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.
