Reading Recs: Six Classics with Bad Boys and Anti-Heroes
We start with two notorious rakes--Valmont in Les Liaisons Dangereuses and Lovelace in Clarissa.
Fancy a murderer, rather than a seducer? Then meet Raskolnikov in Crime and Punishment.
Or how about a blend of the two? Dorian Gray wants to preserve his youth and beauty whatever the cost.
For a truly classic anti-hero, look no further than Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights.
However, if you want to go for something closer to all-out evil and the perfect fall from grace, meet Ambrosio in The Monk.
