Ulysses, In Search of Lost Time, The Trial, Finnegans Wake, The Recognitions, The Lime Twig, Women and Men, and The Tunnel are some of the more obvious choices; but, of course, there are hundreds of novels--many of them by unheard of authors like Orlovitz and Rios--that could fall under the same classification.

20th century was better for poetry, desu

Ulysses

In Search of Lost Time

Lolita

Gravity's Rainbow
