Classics
« on: March 09, 2020, 10:06:34 pm »
What classics have you read? Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Orwell, Harper Lee and many more have earned their place in classic English literature. So what classics do you like? Personally my favourite is 1984 by Orwell, although the characters are enjoyable, the world of 1984 is what draws a reader in

Interesting question! I love Shakespeare for the richness of some of the monologues, but really don’t like the plots of much of his work. Does Christie count as classics, if so then her work is my favourite without a doubt.

I'm a big Sherlock Holmes guy. On a similar note I really like the Arsene Lupin series.

Animal Farm is my favorite so far.  I need to get around to Moby Dick one of these days though. 

Shakespeare has some of the greatest lines of all time.
     "I, that have neither pity, love, nor fear.
Indeed, 'tis true that Henry told me of;
For I have often heard my mother say
I came into the world with my legs forward:
Had I not reason, think ye, to make haste,
And seek their ruin that usurp'd our right?
The midwife wonder'd and the women cried
'O, Jesus bless us, he is born with teeth!'
And so I was; which plainly signified
That I should snarl and bite and play the dog.
Then, since the heavens have shaped my body so,
Let hell make crook'd my mind to answer it.
I have no brother, I am like no brother;
And this word 'love,' which graybeards call divine,
Be resident in men like one another
And not in me: I am myself alone."

All characters are equal, but some characters are more equal then others.  :laugh:

I'm actually trying to read more of the classics. They are kinda of hard since the writing style is pretty different compared to today so I usually read them with audiobook.
But I always loved The Great Gatsby probably my favorite book of all time. I literally read it every year and own two other copies in Spanish and Italian.

I've 2 copies of Shakespeare's complete works. You may have noticed my signature is a quote from the 1001 Arabian Nights. Does Frances Hodgson Burnett count as a classic?
A secret's ever safely placed with honest folk and leal;
And secrets trusted unto me are in a locked-up house
Whose keys are lost and on whose door is set the Cadi's seal.
~ From the 1001 Arabian Nights

It might not be a litterature classic, but it's a architecture litterature classic. Barbra Miller Lanes architecture and Politics in Germany 1918-1945. Awesome if you like to learn about the connection between architecture and extremism.

I've read a lot of Dostoevsky, Plato, Aristotle, and Nietzsche. I guess you could add Freud to that list, too.
