Today's discussion post for Armchair BEA is on classic literature. This is one that I'm a huge fan of because before I started blogging I really loved reading the old classics. I really wanted to work my way through a lot of those books that have been around forever.
These books were actually the reason I studied English Literature at university, I really loved learning about the change of the novel over the time. I actually took a class that we had to read a book a week and we went through the times, beginning with Don Quixote by Cervantes and going through Jane Austen and so many others. It was one of my favorite classes.
But I will always say my favorite class of all time in university that dealt with classics was one that was dedicated to all the works of Shakespeare. A lot of people find me crazy but I had so much fun reading each of Shakespeare's plays and really taking time with them and breaking it down scene by scene.
When I think of classics these are the books that come to mind. Classics are the books that have stood the test of time and you still find people reading hundreds of years after. I think this is something that all books will be compared to. What do you think of classics?
