This a great guide for anyone wanting to learn more about literature. It is not an in-depth look, but instead an overview of some of time's greatest authors and their best works. From the Epic of Gilgamesh, through Homerian works, Shakespeare, and many more, this book serves as a diving board into the pool of historic literature. I plan on using it as a reference as I begin to read through and study the classics, so I don't belly flop in the vast collection that exists. Happy swimming!
