    For beautifully written phrases, I would recommend

    “Wuthering Heights ” by Emily Bronte

    “Gone with the Wind” by Margaret Mitchell

    http://www.kingstone.com.tw/english/book_page.asp?...

    These are some of the phrases beautifully written:

    Wuthering Heights:

    He little imagined how my heart warmed towards him when I beheld his black eyes withdraw so suspiciously under their brows

    Even the gate over which he leant manifested no sympathizing movement to the worfs, and I think that circumstance determined me to accept the invitation; I felt interested in a man who seemed more exaggeratedly reserved than myself.

    Gone with the Wind:

    In her face were too sharply blended the delicate features of her mother, a Coast aristocrat of French descent, and the heavy ones of her florid Irish father.

    Outside, the late afternoon sun slanted down in the yard, throwing into gleaming brightness the dogwood trees that solid masses of white blossoms against the background of new green.

    The moist hungry earth, waiting upturned for the cotton seeds, showed pinkish on the sandy tops of furrows, vermilion and scarlet and maroon where shadows lay along the sides of the trenches.

    Yes, I did think of Shakespeare, but his work is mostly plays and sonnets. I would think that most recent writers' novels would fit the asker's need more.

    In addition, it would be easier to learn how to write beautiful phrases from more recent writers than from Shakespeare (whose writing was in early Modern English).

    For example, in "As you like it", he wrote:

    As I remember, Adam, it was upon this fashion

    bequeathed me by will but poor a thousand crowns,

    and, as thou sayest, charged my brother, on his

    blessing, to breed me well: and there begins my

    sadness.
