The Ancient New East ...

    University of Indianapolis Athens Campus

    This reading list presents a program of guided reading that includes works from the world’s greatest literary traditions. It is, of course, not an exhaustive list, but it should help you to become a well-educated and well-read person. The works listed here will take you several years to finish, but they will become your life companions. Once they become a part of you, they work in, on, and with you until you die. These works should not be read in a hurry.

    The aim of this reading plan is simple: to fill your mind slowly, gradually, with the thoughts, feelings, and imaginings of some of the greatest writers. You will understand something of your position in space and time, as these works will give you the tools for self-discovery. You will know how human beings evolved throughout their long history and how they acquired models of high thought and feeling.

    This reading list has been compiled by Dr. Susie Michailidis, Chair of the English Department, Maria Tsahas, Assistant Professor of English, Dionysia Balaskas, Lecturer of English, and Tonia Nikopoulos, Lecturer of English, and edited by Christine Harrison, Assistant Professor of English.
