The Well-Read Retiree: Classics

Our retired maverick English Teacher comes up with 51 classics of literature he feels should be read and reread. He set 50 as the list limit with only one title per author, but could not decide between "Dubliners" and "Ulysses", so he changed the limit to 51, with 2 works by Joyce.
