Most important books: Natasha Trethewey

Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Natasha Trethewey recently told Newsweek about her five most important books.

One title to make the list:
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

It's so dark and romantic, and I was inspired by the way Brontë used the language of the characters to communicate their class differences.
Read about the other titles on Trethewey's list.
