Classics for Beginners

People who are new to classic books can discuss which books to read and what they think of books they have already read. People who are experienced with classics are welcome and encouraged.
~True Classics contain ideas that are relevant for the human condition and resonate in a multitude of different ways regardless of the era they were written in or about.~
