Back to the Classics 2015


I have done this for a few years, but with little success.  So I am hoping that this time around I can get most of the categories completed.

Here are the categories:

  1. A 19th Century Classic
  2. A 20th Century Classic
  3. A Classic written by a woman
  4. A Classic in translation
  5. A Very Long Classic (500+ pages)
  6. A Classic Novella
  7. A Classic with a Person's Name
  8. A Humorous and Satirical Classic
  9. A Forgotten Classic
  10. A Nonfiction classic
  11. A Children's Classic
  12. A Classic Play
If you want more detailed information about the challenge, you can head to Books and Chocolate and find more information in regards to the challenge as well as help to find books for some of the challenges.

Here is what I am intending to read for the various categories:

  1. A 19th Century Classic: The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
  2. A 20th Century Classic: The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
  3. A Classic written by a woman: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  4. A Classic in translation: The Illiad by Homer
  5. A Very Long Classic (500+ pages): War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
  6. A Classic Novella: Daisy Miller by Henry James
  7. A Classic with a Person's Name: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
  8. A Humorous and Satirical Classic: Animal Farm by George Orwell
  9. A Forgotten Classic: Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson
  10. A Nonfiction classic: A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
  11. A Children's Classic: The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis
