The List of Great Literary Fathers/Father Figures
We decided to make a little list of literary fathers in honor of Father’s Day. We know it’s a little late, since Father’s Day was yesterday… but we think you will forgive us/still enjoy the list anyway. So here it is.
Matthew Cuthbert from Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Mr. Bennett from Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen
Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchel
The Father from The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Prospero from The Tempest by William Shakespeare
Eddard Stark from A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
Tam al’ Thor from Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
Arthur Weasley from the Harry Potter Series by JKR
That’s all that we could think of – did we miss any?
