The pubs and bars where famous authors hung out, got drunk, and discussed their writing
We were recently sent this fantastic infographic, ‘7 Famous Literary Bars You Should Visit’, courtesy of Assignment Masters, and thought it was well worth sharing. It vividly and beautifully details some of the favourite watering holes of famous writers including Dylan Thomas, Ernest Hemingway, C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, James Joyce, and Ezra Pound, among many other literary greats. It’s a great insight into the links and associations between various writers – who hung out with whom, and where. Thanks to Linda Craig of Assignment Masters (who created the infographic) for bringing it to our attention. Have you visited any of these pubs and bars? We’re pleased to say here at Interesting Literature that we’ve chucked about a few ales in the Eagle and Child pub in Oxford, though the others remain on our ‘to visit’ list.
