Who are the most romantic literary lovers of all time?

Feb 14 2021

You don’t need to be a book worm or a fan of romantic literature to know some of the most famous literary lovers of all time. My personal favourites are Francesca and Robert from The Bridges of Madison County that is a wonderful book by Robert James Waller beautifully adapted to the big screen by Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep. I also love the couple from The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks (also a movie starring Ryan Gosling). Unsurprisingly, although the story may be a tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, who were created in the 16th century by William Shakespeare still embody the passion and true love we all wish to experience in our lifetimes. It was also great to see some more contemporary book lovers make the final list, such as life-long lovers Jack and Ennis from Brokeback Mountain as well as Anastasia and Christian from Fifty Shades of Grey.
