Due to some of the excerpts I have read in my Humanities textbook this semester, I have decided that I want to focus on some classical literature this summer (as opposed to the modern novels that I love to read). This list is primarily made up of novels that have been out for decades and are considered classical in some form or another. I'd like to add to this list, so if anyone has any additional novels that they recommend, let me know and I'll check them out and possibly add them to my list.
This list was originally born of my desire to read truly classical literature (ex. The Iliad, The Odyssey, Sophocles' Three Theban Plays, etc.) as well as more modern classical horror (ex. Frankenstein and Dracula) and the rest ended up on my list when I discovered the website "The Literature Network."
The chances of me actually finishing this list by the end of summer are highly unlikely, but I may start it quite soon so that I may actually have a chance of finishing it by the end of the year.
NOTE: The particular published copies that are on this list are not necessarily the editions that I will be reading. It's just the stories I wanted to list.
