Nick's Picks for Hallow's Eve

by Nick Morgan

Here's my list of the top ten literary works to read on (or around) Halloween:

    10. "The Lottery" -- Shirley Jackson

    9. Nausea -- Jean Paul Sartre

    8. "The Shining" -- Stephen King

    7. The Metamorphosis -- Franz Kafka

    6. "The Masque of the Red Death" -- Edgar Allen Poe

    5. "The Second Coming" -- W. B. Yeats

    4. Agamemnon -- Aeschylus

    3. "The Wasteland" -- T. S. Eliot

    2. Inferno -- Dante Alighieri

    1. Macbeth -- William Shakespeare

Feel free to dispute these picks, or point out the various worthy works I must have overlooked or otherwise excluded.

Happy Halloween to all.
