Wikipedia Tour: Western Lit's Greatest Hits
20 Installments—Entirely free
Members' Rating: from 4 Ratings
The western literary tradition is stunningly rich—so rich, in fact, that it can seem overwhelming. Never fear: we have created a list of 20 of western literature’s all-stars. From Hamlet to Anna Karenina, Jane Eyre to Ulysses, these are the must-read works from the western canon. Although their plots vary widely—from the fall of Satan to one man’s ruthless pursuit of a white whale—these stories are profound and profoundly affecting. Tender romance, devastating tragedy, and murder most foul live in the stories of these texts, which speak as loudly and as clearly today as when they first appeared.
