Summer Reading List

The end of the term is fast approaching. As with all students I have a potential, ideal reading list for this summer. Chances are I won’t complete it – I never do. But to hit a target with a bow and arrow you have to aim higher than the target itself, right?

The Bible – Marquis De Sade [/coolface.jpg]

The Iliad – Homer

The Odyssey – Homer

The Aeneid – Virgil

Barn Burning– John Steinbeck

Brave New World – Aldous Huxley

The Count of Monte Cristo – Alexandre Dumas

Robert Frost: Selected Poems – Robert Frost

Through the Looking Glass – Lewis Carroll

Moby Dick – Herman Melville

Heart of Darkness – Joseph Conrad

The Ministry of Fear – Graham Greene

  1. Many of these classics just aren’t the same as the original languages (The Count of Monte Cristo, especially)

  2. Is there a book by de Sade, that is also called “The Bible” or is it a remark to the sometimes sadist content in the Bible?

    1. The latter, comrade. :P

      For the record, De Sade was utterly, disgustingly reactionary. It’s merely a comment on the content of the Bible.
