As a nod to St. Valentine’s Day we are going to talk about our favorite literary couples.

8 of the best couples in literature

I am pleased to see contemporary fiction mixed in with some of the timeless classics. The Bronte Sisters made the list. My Senior Thesis Paper saw Heathcliff as a Hero. I got an A- and a good story to go with it. How, I Made a Thesis Paper Look Like I Was the Person Who Typed It.

Come, chat with us, Sunday, 14 February at 7PM EST

Here are 8 of the most messed up, romantic, page-turning couples from literature, ever (spoiler-alert).

Relationship Month at The Writer’s Chatroom

Scarlett and Rhett – Gone With The Wind

‘No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, by someone who knows what he’s doing.’

Estella and Pip – Great Expectations

‘The unqualified truth is, that when I loved Estella with the love of a man, I loved her simply because I found her irresistible.’

Ron and Hermoine – Harry Potter

There was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione’s arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth…’

Cathy and Heathcliff – Wuthering Heights

‘Nelly I am Heathcliff…He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.’

Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy – Pride and Prejudice

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife’ 

Jane and Mr. Rochester  Jane Eyre

To be together is for us to be at once as free as in solitude, as gay as in company. We talk, I believe, all day long: to talk to each other is but a more animated and an audible thinking. All my confidence is bestowed on him, all his confidence is devoted to me; we are precisely suited in character—perfect concord is the result.’

Romeo and Juliet – Romeo and Juliet

‘Romeo, Romeo, whereforart thou Romeo?’ and ‘But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun!”

Peeta & Katniss – The Hunger Games

You love me. Real or not real?” I tell him, “Real.”’ – (Mockingjay)
