It's been awhile...

Post  The_Admin on Tue Jun 19, 2012 5:06 pm

I haven't read any "classic" literature in a very long time. I still equate it with stuff I was forced to read in High School and College and then analyze far more than the author probably intended then write boring papers about. I would NOT have wanted to be the professor who had to read all that tripe!
What makes a book "classic" though? I really don't know. I suppose if I had to read something classic I would read Dickens or Shakespeare.

If anyone else is befuddled by this here are some helpful links to ideas for classical literature...
