We love this piece from The Huffington Post on some of the best literary bromances. From Potter and Weasley to Hamlet and Horatio, these best buds of literature reflect the relationships that have been around for ages:
The concept of a ‘bromance,’ however, is not revelatory or new. They’ve been occurring for ages (see: Homer). We’ve rounded up some of our favorite bromances of all time. NOTE: We don’t include any in this list who are actually romantically involved (such as Sebastian and Charles in Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited), as those don’t differentiate from romances. This list is reserved for BFFs only, not lovers
Among some of the picks are Darcy and Bingley (from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice), Frodo and Sam (from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series), Tyrion and Bronn (from George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series) and Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories).
Check out the full list here and let us know in the comments who your personal favorite bromances in literature are. We want to hear from you, LitStackers!
