Julius Caesar

  • Sawyer says to Locke, "You too, Brutus?", in "Two for the Road" (Season Two). This is a reference to the famous quote, "Et tu, Brute?", which are Caesar's last words in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. According to the chronicles, his last words were actually "Tu quoque, mi fili? ["You too, my son?"]" or even "Kaï sù, tèknon?", which is the same question, in Greek.


  • Quotes from this Roman author are found on the Blast Door Map.


by Walker Percy

  • Sawyer was reading this on the beach in "Maternity Leave" when Kate asked him for a gun.
  • The title of this book references, in turn, the entire Arthurian canon.

Li Bai

  • An early Tang Dynasty (618-907) poem by Chinese poet Li Bai, "Third Eye Ascended in Dreams" is seen as calligraphy in flashbacks of Jin and Sun's home.
  • The content itself is surreal, being about a man who journeys far in a dream as though in a vivid parallel dimension, only to be abruptly awoken to the mundaneness and bitterness of reality. This is a paradox meaning that dreams can be better at revealing the truth than reality.

Locke, John

  • John Locke was a 17th century English Enlightenment philosopher who wrote two treaties on government as well as other essays about man's role as a social being.

The Lord of the Flies

by William Golding

Marcus Annaeus Lucanus

  • Quotes from this Roman author are found on the Blast Door Map.

Musset, Alfred de

  • Locke attempts to recreate his brief sighting of the Blast Door Map on a page from a 1939 book of poems by Alfred de Musset, called Sur les Débuts de Melles Rachel et Pauline (Of the Debuts of Rachel and Pauline).

The Mysterious Island

by Jules Verne

  • In the novel, several people crash-land a balloon onto an island in the South Pacific (as the actual Henry Gale apparently did), where odd things happen.
  • There is an orangutan called "Jupe" (short for "Jupiter") on the island. The Hanso Foundation's Joop is very likely a reference to this.

An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge

by Ambrose Bierce

  • Locke is shown holding this book upside down, in the Swan, flipping through the pages as if he's trying to find loose papers between them.

The Odyssey

Epic Greek tale by Homer, sequel to The Iliad, with parallels to themes in Lost, particularly the story of Desmond and Penelope.

Our Mutual Friend

by Charles Dickens

  • Desmond had planned for this to be last book he reads before he dies.

The Outsiders

by Susan E. Hinton

  • In the flashback scene in the van during "Everybody Hates Hugo" (Season Two), Hurley's friend Johnny says to him, "Stay gold, Ponyboy." This is a reference to The Outsiders and this phrase being used in the book is, in turn, a reference to the Robert Frost poem "Nothing Gold Can Stay".


  • Quotes from this Roman author are found on the Blast Door Map.

Rainbow Six

by Tom Clancy

  • This book is shown on the bookshelf in the Swan hatch during "Orientation" (Season Two).

Romeo and Juliet

Rousseau, Jean-Jacques

  • Influential 18th century Swiss French philosopher who wrote The Social Contract and introduced the idea of the "noble savage".

The Stand

by Stephen King

  • Damon Lindelof has said that this novel was a major influence on Lost. Several characters in that book share certain similarities with those on the island.

A Tale of Two Cities

by Charles Dickens

  • This is the title of the first episode of Season Three.
  • Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse revealed in the official podcast that the "two cities" refer to the two seperate societies of the crash survivors and the Others.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

A Wrinkle in Time
