September Meme: Question #26

Hi clubbers!! We’re excited to be posting our September meme question for the club!

Here’s the question this month:

see future questions for this meme

Select two classics from your list (by different authors) that you have finished reading. Now switch the authors, and contemplate how each might have written the other’s book. For example, what if Charlotte Brontë had written David Copperfield, and Charles Dickens had written Jane Eyre? How might the style, focus and impact change in a work of literature by a different author’s pen? What about William Shakespeare writing Pride & Prejudice, and Jane Austen writing The Taming of the Shrew? Etc. If you discuss the story, please of course remember to warn folks plot details are forthcoming.

Feel free to answer over at your blog any time in September, and leave the link to your post in the comments below.

Remember to check out this page for details or to share suggestions for future meme questions! And then check out one another’s posts!

  2. At first, I thought I was going to pass on this one. I like authors to entertain ME…I don’t try to get into their head enough to really do this meme justice. But it is a fun question, so I was thinking what if Orwell had written The Lord of the Rings, and Tolkien had written 1984? I imagine Winston Smith would have destroyed Big Brother, and I imagine Sam and Frodo would have been captured and tortured, Sauron gets the ring…end of all things good.
