Let's just say we wouldn't know where modern tales of revenge would be like without this classic. The promising, rich and young sailor Edmond Dantes is flung into jail out of jealousy where he loses literally everything - his fiancee who married one of the men who framed him, his riches, his career, his father who died without knowing what happened to him, and most importantly, his freedom. And after 14 years of exile, Dantes is able to stand up on his feet again. It is a totally satisfying revenge tale that is hard-won and meticulously thought out. As he puts it, “How did I escape? With difficulty. How did I plan this moment? With pleasure.”

When we said every family has their problems, we weren't expecting one of epic proportions. Like brother-killing, wife-stealing epic. Hamlet starts to see ghosts and visions in a bid to reclaim his rightful place at the throne, all hell breaks loose. This play is full of betrayal, violence, death and hatred, and well, we relish it. #RoyalFamilyProblems, anyone?

This breathtaking multi-generational love story spans two continents, two World Wars, and the quest of two star-crossed lovers. This big Italian family saga is nothing but sorrow, trials, and drama.

It's not so much who is taking revenge on whom in this epic - more like who ISN'T taking revenge. Menelaus vows to destroy Troy after Paris steals Helen. Achilles wants bloody revenge after Hector kills his cousin, Patroclus, in an unfortunate accident. Even the gods are taking sides in this mess - with Poseidon helping the Greeks and Apollo aiding the Trojans. This can't end well.

If there was any family that should be on reality TV back in the Victorian ages, the people from Wuthering Heights should be it. Heathcliff comes back as a rich man to take revenge on the man who bullied him as a kid, and then takes revenge on Cathy by marrying someone else, and leading someone else's son astray. Truly keeping up with Wuthering Heights.
Wuthering Heights, Emily Jane Brontë
