So, I found this link on Life Optimizer about classic books to “boost your learning experience.” What’s that mean? I’ve always liked the idea (referenced in the post) that they “give you different lenses to look through.” The author actually explains how he created his list, looking at two references on the subject “How To Read A Book” and “The Well-Educated Mind”. His list is composed of those classics that are recommended in both books. Anyway, you just know that when somebody lists important classic books I’m gonna be there to see how our man Shakespeare does. This particular list has a category for “Drama”, which has 13 entries. Care to take a guess how many old Shakey is responsible for? 3(*) of them. For the next question, no, no other playwright is listed more than once. Which ones? Richard III, Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Hamlet. Interesting combination. (*) Technically 4, if you count “Sonnets” listed in the Poetry section.
