Westward Ho! by Charles Kingsley

>> No.13451650

Le Roman de la Rose by Guillaume de Lorris/Jean de Meung is largely forgotten outside of medieval academic circles, especially considering how popular it was at the time and its influence on the Divine Comedy. Tristan and Isolde is also forgotten to some level, also crazy popular for its time period.

The Notebook of Gustav Anias Horn After He Was 49 Years Old by Hans Henny Jahnn

Not exactly forgotten, but Stendhal should be read more widely.

>> No.13454220

>>13454008
In France he is still widely read, mostly because Le Rouge et le Noir is mandatory at school. I prefer La Chartreuse de Parme though. Also Céline post Death On Credit, he made incredible stuff forgotten because of Bagatelles (I mostly think of Normance and Nord)

George MacDonald is great. Phantastes is very worth reading, and There and Back is the best of CS Lewis' nonrigorous apologetics in novel form.

I Burn Paris by Bruno Jasieński. Poland has some absolutely underrated authors, some of which /lit/ have found out like Gombrowicz that would be obscure anywhere else but here surprisingly, so good on us for that, they still tend to be overlooked though.

Amusingly when I look it up on Google this is the book that comes up

One of the best books I've ever read. If you enjoy sci-fi you owe it to yourself to read this.

Tristan and Isolde is great. Christine de Pizan absolutely BTFOd Le Roman de la Rose (La citté des dammes is also mostly forgotten and I really enjoyed it). There are some spanish medieval classics I would recommend too: Cárcel de Amor and Amadís de Gaula (better know as being one of the books not burned in don Quijote) and Laberinto de la Fortuna. La Celestina is better known but I think within english speaking people it is not.

You're the opposite of edgy but on the same spectrum of faggotry.
