I’m sure this year (as on every other year) there will be multitudes of ghosts, goblins, and vampires pouring about my neighborhood on the ever important quest of obtaining candy from wary neighbors. And in case you haven’t been reading our blog lately, there are scores of ways to tie literature in with Halloween (shocker, I know!). Today, I’ve compiled a list of literary works which feature some of the most well-known Halloween appropriate characters:
1. Hamlet by William Shakespeare – perhaps you didn’t see this one coming, but in my opinion it features one of the creepiest ghosts of the literary world!
2. Dracula by Bram Stoker – obvious choice! There’s nothing like a good old fashioned vampire to get your blood running!
3. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling – if I had to list all of the creepy creatures found in this set of books…well I’d be here awhile. Enough said.
This list continues next time! Enjoy! :)
