Required reading for the world?

WS07-book-recreatede recently asked our followers on Facebook what books they believe should be universally required reading. We present for your consideration the following list of recommendations, representing a wide range (as you can see) of interests, eras, and genres:

Feel free to let us know what books YOU believe should be added to this list, with a comment below. (And while you’re thinking about these topics, why don’t you check out this list of books on the Core webpage, all suggested by Core alums, students, and friends as possible candidates to be added to the Core reading list if the time ever comes that we get more class time and can expand the curriculum.)

The graphic above was used in the Spring of 2004 for the Core teeshirt design.

Motion to add the Aeneid to this list an additional time, and also The Communist Manifesto.

(and lucan’s pharsalus but one can only ask for so much)

FTFY: Pharsalia. Also, De Bello Civili of Lucan << the Vera Historia of Lucian.#gogreek #latinschmatin
