Top 10 Darkest Classic Novels
Some of these much-lauded tales contain pretty bleak content. For this list, we’re looking at pieces of fiction with sinister or cheerless storylines and themes. We’re really honing in on novels, so plays and poems won’t be considered. That means no Shakespeare and no “Paradise Lost!” In terms of what we’re considering to be a classic, it’s more based on the work’s literary merit and reputation than the year of release, so there are a couple of more modern picks here. Welcome to WatchMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Darkest Classic Novels.
