Picked these up at the local Goodwill store an hour ago. I was looking for a copy of infinite jest but came up empty. I guess people are reluctant to donate it cause it gives their shelves so much elite reader cred.
My question is which of these do I read first? Which should go straight into the trash?
They were cheap enough so that I won't feel bad if I never read a few of them.
Is that a decent translation of Homer?
It's a area of lit that I've never dipped into. Except raisin in the sun as required reading in high school. A black lady rung me up too. Made it kind of awkward.
Read whichever one you find the most interesting -- but if you haven't read Animal Farm before, you should probably get that out of the way.
Sorry in advance for hijacking this thread
I just finished the Iliad. I'll be away from my main bookshelf, and consequently, the Odyssey, for about a week. I brought some books, but can't decide what to read. Any suggestions?
As a side note, I've never read any of these, but I have read other works by Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, and Hemingway. I have not read anything by Plato, DeLillo, Pipes, Bulgakov, or Scott.
