It’s enlightening to discover how important a role lights can play in literature. You may have read some of these novels; you may even have read and seen them all. But did you ever realise the significance of the lights, and how this contributed to the overall story?
Our latest infographic describes memorable lights that exist in these tales, and explains how the image of light is used, perhaps for symbolism or imagery. It’s also interesting to see how light often makes an appearance in woeful stories, where the light and the dark are usually conflicting images.
Are there any memorable lights that you can think of from literature that aren’t on our list? Are there any that you’d read about but never really paid attention to?
