Beowulf - very interesting to read this and think it's the oldest English epic in existance. Wow - the road this poem has traveled!
Beowulf is an Old English epic poem set in Scandinavia and is commonly cited as one of the most important works of Old English literature because it is possibly the oldest surviving long poem in Old English. It was written by an anonymous Anglo-Saxon poet, and is dated between the 8th and the early 11th century.

A House for Mr Biswas: by V.S. Naipaul Featured in: 50 Writers, 50 Books - The Best of Indian Fiction. Harper-Collins India.
The early masterpiece of V. S. Naipaul's brilliant career, A House for Mr. Biswas is an unforgettable story inspired by Naipaul's father that has been hailed as one of the twentieth century's finest novels.
A House for Mr. Biswas - When Mohun Biswas married his wife, Shama, he effectively married her entire family, the daunting, smothering Tulsis. Set in the Hindu community in postcolonial Trinidad — where Naipaul was born — A House for Mr. Biswas is the life story of a man who wanted only a home, but who was a magnet for misfortune, oppression and humiliation, with no family except that which he was to attempt to create out of the engulfing world of the Tulsis.” #literature #books
