Lights in Literature: Share Your Suggestions

Light_bulbAhead of Durham Lumiere, we’re asking you for your favourite examples of light in literature. [Edit: Here is the list you came up with: The Top Five Lights in Literature.]

Whether furtive encounters by moonlight in the novels of Wilkie Collins, the guttering candle by which Ebeneezer Scrooge tries to write his tables, or the sun that downed Icarus, there are loads of examples of light used in stories for symbolic or atmospheric effect.

Share your favourites in the comments below, tweet us using the hashtag #litlight, or message us on Facebook, and we’ll post the best to this blog on Friday.
