Fic help

1. Give me three "classic" books. I don't care how long ago they were written or by who or in what language. Give me three books that should endure.

2. Can anyone think of a specific painting (preferably something classical/romantic) of an angel? And not one of those chubby baby cherubs, either. Female is good. If there are other people in the painting, even better.

Yeah, I'm weird.

Not sure if this is what you mean, but:

1a. Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell.
1b. On The Beach by Nevil Shute.
1c. anything by Shakespeare.

In regards to 2, I have no idea. Sorry!
1. Lord of the Rings trilogy by Tolkien
2. The Tanach (Hebrew Bible - Torah, Prophets & Writing)
3. Anne of Green Gables - Lucy Maude Montgomery (I've reread and reread even as an adult)

I don't know about a picture with angels. Can't help. Willing to do some searches if you need.
