Crash Course Literature 2, in which John Green teaches you about a future in which he'll teach you about literature:

Which of the books are you excited to read?

Here is the reading list:

The Odyssey by Homer
Oedipus Rex by Sophocles
Hamlet by Bill Shakespeare
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
Beloved by Toni Morrison

Many of these books also have free editions available. Try the amazing and awesome Project Gutenberg at

Crash Course already covered my two favorites, Gatsby and Catcher. Of these I'm excited for Frankenstein, To Kill a Mockingbird and Jane Eyre. Not looking forward to The Odyssey, Hamlet (liked the play until I watched some adaptations) or Beloved (Morrison's Song of Solomon was a little too much for me.)

I'm excited for Slaughterhouse Five. I read it as "independent reading" in high school, and I'm pretty sure I missed quite a bit of what was going on.

So happy to hear this!! I teach freshmen and we watch Crash course Romeo and Juliet. The kids love it, and John Green is so much more entertaining than I am. I have been hoping for more of these.

I am so exited!!! We are reading Things Fall Apart and Jane Eyre in School thins year and I have already read some of the others, I love Crash Course!

I'm excited, I have never got into crash course literature though but I do love reading I don't know why. I am more of a science crash course watchers/ nerdfighter.
