I just had the idea to list books where the title is also the book’s chief symbol. So far I have:
- The Catcher in the Rye
- Lord of the Flies
- The Bluest Eye
- The Bell Jar
- The Color Purple
- The Maltese Falcon
Please add more in the comments.
I’d also like to make lists of books where the title is an allusion (The Grapes of Wrath, The Sound and the Fury) and where the title is a complete sentence (Death Comes For the Archbishop, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter).
