- December- A classic written under a pseudonym- If you don’t know which books were written under pseudonyms here’s a few names to help you out. Jane Austen wrote her books under a pseudonym (by a lady) as did the Bronte sisters (published their books under male pseudonyms), George Elliot (real name Mary Ann Evans) and Agatha Christie also wrote a few books under the Pseudonym Mary Westmacott. Men who also have written under Pseudonyms are Mark Twain (real name Samuel L. Clemens) and Lewis Carroll (real name Charles Lutwidge Dodgson). I’m sure there’s more out there but there’s a few to start you out.
My Classics Club deadline is getting closer and this will help me pick up the pace!
