Favorite Literary Couples

John Thornton and Margaret Hale from North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

Discovered this lovely couple last year. Watch the mini-series and then go read the book. Prepare to swoon.

Capt. Wentworth & Anne Elliot from Persuasion by Jane Austen

I read this the summer I went to Europe. It contains one of the best love letters ever. It’s about second chances. I adore this book.

Mr. Darcy & Elizabeth Bennett from Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen


Eugenides & Irene from The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner

Subtle. Clever. Heart-wrenching.

Anne Shirley & Gilbert Blithe from Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery

First time I fell in love with a literary couple.

Bennedick & Beatrice from Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare

Best bantering couple. Loved the movie version. Very fun play to read aloud.
