Goodreads "The Five Books You Would Require If You Taught an English Literature Class" - Page 2

A splendid list of books as chosen by discerning Goodreads users. Goodreads politely requested "Please select works of literature-quality writing". As you will discover, this outcome was achieved 'in spades', to use the vernacular.
NOTES: Goodreads asserted (by using bold font) that "only works published originally in the English language" should be added to the source list. Not an unreasonable stipulation in my view.
