I stumbled across this Homes of Classic Literature infographic yesterday and fell in love. To me, seeing a floor plan of the main setting of a novel really makes it come to life. Back in junior high, high school, and even college, I'd make floor plans of the homes in the stories I was reading. I remember making up a floor plan of Miss Havisham's house from Great Expectations, floor plans of Emily's house and George's house when I played Emily in a high school acting class production of Our Town, and I always sketch up floor plans of the houses that the characters of my own novels live in.
From BagEnd to Dracula's castle, from Thornfield Hall to Sherlock and Watson's digs – check them out! I hope to see (or make) more! Find the rest of the Homes of Classic Literature here.
I'd LOVE to see a floor plan of Scarlett's O'Hara's plantation home Tara.
What novel home would you like to see a floor plan of?
