Weekly challenge - English Literature

I'm pondering... Now what could the theme for Inspiration Avenue be this week? And when will my intended ever turn up for this wedding.... the cake is being eaten by mice and I've ahd to let the dress out four times...

I wandered lonely as a cloud... beware my Lord of jealousy.... Last  night I went to Manderley again.... It is a truth universally acknowledged.... tyger tyger burning bright....


This week I want you to travel to the shores of my birth - ancient, magnificent and blessed with some fine writing talent.


Take Shakespeare, Dickens, Chaucer, Keats, Austen, Byron or the Brontes as your Muse. Let their stories and verse seep into your creative soul and bring forth magic anew...


Be inspired by English Literature in whatever form you choose. Perhaps you'll craft Elizabeth Bennett a bonnet, let yourself loose with the fairies on a midsummer night or wander across bleak moorland catching a nasty cold (do wrap up... we don't want to be responsible for terrible fevers...).



Just leave us a link to your entry by Sunday at 4pm GMT and we'll delight in your fictional encounters!

Hi Lisa, how serendipitious is this - I just started a new range of shadowboxes based on my favourite characters from English lit and I am working on Miss Havisham!! Can't wait to show this!

I allowed my photography skills (or lack of them due to my very old camera) to take on this week's challenge. Thanks for letting me step outside my normal box, Lisa:
