i find this a snappy reminder that we all read far too narrowly. so get to it folks and fill in some of those blanks.
It also amazes me that while i am familiar with so many that i am unfamiliar with as many. We also live in a time and place today in which excellent translations abound allowing so many classics to be actually enjoyed. Attempting a bad translation is not helpful but it is now worth the effort to run some of these down.
otherwise an excellent list.
What books do you recommend reading for college students?
