Go Set a Watchman and other Biblical titles
The news that a second novel by Harper Lee is to be published this year has caused excitement around the world. Her 1960 novel To Kill a Mockingbird has long been considered a modern classic, and soon readers will be able to read about Scout as an adult in Go Set a Watchman. She actually wrote Go Set a Watchman first, and it has lain undiscovered for many decades.
Among the many questions raised by this news are: what does the title mean? While the meaning of ‘Go set a watchman’ in the context of the novel is yet to be revealed, the words come from the Bible: from Isaiah 21:6, to be precise.
Inspired by this title, we’ve put together a quiz of books which borrow titles from other books. Half of these titles are taken from the Bible and half are not. Can you identify which is which? In each case, just select ‘Bible’ or ‘Not Bible’.
