Wordcloud Literature Quiz

Here’s a quick quiz. Can you identify the classic texts from these 10 wordclouds?

All the texts are all in the top 50 downloads at the Gutenberg Project. These wordclouds show the 100 most used words. I’ve stripped out ‘stop words’ – i.e. common English linking words – which is normal practice when creating them. I’ve also removed the names of the principle characters as that would make it too easy..

Good luck!


  1. Moby Dick
  2. The Illiad
  3. Jekyll & Hyde
  4. Metamorphosis
  5. Dracula
  6. A tale of two cities
  7. The importance of being ernest
  8. Alice in wonderland
  9. Frankenstein
  10. Price & Prejudice
