Over at the Catholic group blog Vox Nova, M.Z. Forrest is trying to compile a list of great Catholic fictional literature, which he defines to include “Catholic, Orthodox, and high Anglican authors.” To get the discussion going, his initial list includes four authors, one of whom was an Anglican:
Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment, Brothers Karamazov
C.S. Lewis, Chronicles of Narnia
J.R.R. Tolkein, Lord of the Rings
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina, War and Peace
There is now a lively discussion on the blog about what else belongs on the list–and why it qualifies as Catholic. You can join the discussion here, but be sure to let us know here what else you think belongs on ths list.
