On Father's Day: Books About Fathers

Since today is Father’s Day, I thought I’d share two relevant articles about fathers in literature. 

Early this year, The Guardian newspaper featured a writer’s list of best books about fathers.  “From Shakespeare to Seamus Heaney, Sam Miller selects his favourites from a tradition where the most interesting characters are very often absent”:  https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/mar/29/top-10-books-about-fathers?CMP=twt_books_b-gdnbooks.

And then there’s ShortList’s 30 most memorable literary fathers:  http://www.shortlist.com/entertainment/books/30-most-memorable-literary-fathers#.

If you are looking for some reading on this day that celebrates fathers, perhaps one of these articles will help.
