Mark Twain defined a literary classic as 'something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read'. But what was true in the nineteenth century doesn't hold today. Mr Darcy is hotter than he ever was, and Brad Pitt fought to fill Achilles' sandals. Teachers and reading groups hunger for recommendations from 'the canon', which is no longer taught. This accessible, impassioned and inspiring guide to the great books of the past will be eagerly embraced and discussed by passionate and grateful readers. This 2007 Vintage (Australia) Paperback is in Good condition.
