Are You Also a Fiction Writer?


On January 1, 2022, books that were published in 1926 entered the public domain in the United States (copyright differs in other countries). That means that you can do remixes and other things with these works. Are you a poet who also writes stories or novels? Maybe a reimagining in your 2022 practice. 

Here’s a selection of some of those titles. 

  • Willa Cather, My Mortal Enemy
  • Agatha Christie, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
  • William Faulkner, Soldiers’ Pay
  • Sadegh Hedayat, The Blind Owl
  • Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises
  • Ernest Hemingway, The Torrents of Spring
  • Georgette Heyer, These Old Shades
  • Zora Neale Hurston, Color Struck
  • D.H. Lawrence, The Plumed Serpent
  • D.H. Lawrence, The Rocking-Horse Winner
  • T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom
  • A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
  • Vladimir Nabokov, Mary
  • Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope
  • Franz Kafka, Das Schloss (The Castle)
  • Yasunari Kawabata, “The Dancing Girl of Izu”
  • Vita Sackville-West, The Land
