#ReadingClassicsIn2019

Candide | Voltaire
post image

I read this a very long time ago in high school, so I decided to reread it for my goal of #ReadingClassicsIn2019. Written by Voltaire, a French philosopher of The Age of Enlightenment, Candide is based on Voltaire's beliefs in reason and freedom of thought.

Lcsmcat One of my favorites! 1w

A Room With A View | E.M. Forster

Pickpick

I just finished reading this very old copy of A Room with a View. This story is set in England and Italy, and deals with how the main character, Lucy, struggled and dealt with the societal conventions imposed upon her as a woman. #ReadingClassicsin2019

Bookwomble Ahh, love that cover 😊 3w
Leftcoastzen Wow, that‘s an old New Directions edition isn‘t it ? Love it ! 3w

The Inferno | Dante
post image
Pickpick

"Do not ask, Reader, how my blood ran cold
and my voice choked up with fear. I cannot write it:
this is a terror that cannot be told." -Dante, The Inferno

This is the epic poem of Dante's descent through the levels of Hell, with the poet Virgil as his guide. I hadn't read this since high school, many many many years ago, so this is the first book on my #ReadingClassicsIn2019 list. #coffeeandabook #englishteacher #classicliterature #apliterature

thebluestocking Such a great book. I haven‘t read it since college though... 10mo

A Confederacy of Dunces | John Kennedy Toole
post image
Pickpick

I just finished my 1st book of 2019, this tragicomedy set in New Orleans in the 1960s. Ignatius J. Reilly is quite a character, as are several of the others you meet along the way in this story of Ignatius' search for a job and his place in society. Thanks for a great #NewYearWhoDis recommendation @Maria514626 @monalyisha #LitsyAtoZ #C @BookishMarginalia #ReadingClassicsIn2019 #ReadingThroughTheYears192021 #192021 #1980

monalyisha Knocked it out! Way to go! 🙌🏻 10mo

The Inferno | Dante
post image

Planning & writing down some of the books I definitely want to read in 2019. I've read most of the books on my Famous First Lines mug, but I want to read the ones I haven't read, and reread the ones I haven't read in a very long time. I'm also planning to read/reread several other classics. I enjoyed looking through my bookshelves to see what I should put on my list! The tagged book is the one I'm starting with in January. #ReadingClassicsIn2019

Kappadeemom I have that mug too!!❤️ 12mo
