The English Teacher's Dark Secret: Big, Important Books He Has Not Read... Yet

Our maverick English Teacher and theatre director comes clean and lists 100 big, important, classic books he has not read. In his defense, he would like to point out that he has been engaged in reading innumerable plays, works of Medieval English Literature, and genre fiction; he also would like to point out that when he was studying literature, a number of these works had not yet been published. Even so, he is chagrined at how well read he... isn't.
