Introduction to Classical Literature - Page 3

Here is a list which can serve as a good introduction to classical literature of Western tradition. It is mostly based on various recommendations for students of philology I have collected. In some cases it may count that you have read different works of the same author than those listed here (except of the most famous titles), or if you have read only a part (for anthologies or big works). The image is taken from the 1964 film adaptation of "Hamlet".
