In 1867, Mark Twain and a group fellow-­Americans toured Europe and the Holy Land, aboard a retired Civil War ship known as Quaker City. Throughout the journey, Twain kept a written record of his experiences. The Innocents Abroad is both a travelogue and a critique of clashing cultures but more importantly, it is an entertaining and insightful work written by one of the great masters of American prose.

To the Lighthouse is a 1927 novel by Virginia Woolf. A landmark novel of high modernism, the text, which centres on the Ramsays and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland between 1910 and 1920, skilfully manipulates temporal and psychological elements. To the Lighthouse follows and extends the tradition of modernist novelists like Marcel Proust and James Joyce, where the plot is secondary to philosophical introspection, and the prose can be winding and hard to follow. The novel includes little dialogue and almost no action; most of it is written as thoughts and observations. The novel recalls childhood emotions and highlights adult relationships. Among the book's many tropes and themes are those of loss, subjectivity, and the problem of perception. In 1998, the Modern Library named “To the Lighthouse” number 15 on its list of the 100 best English-­language novels of the 20th century. In 2005, the novel was chosen by TIME magazine as one of the one hundred best . . .
