I second the
To Kill A Mockingbird
A Brave New World
and Jane Austen reccs. I hated 1984 but loved BNW.
Any Shakespeare is good. My personal favorite is
Paradise Lost (Milton) and The Inferno (Dante)
Great Expectations is a good read.
Le Morte d'Arthur
by Sir Thomas Mallory and continuing on that T
he Once and Future King
Continuing with epic poetry Beowulf would be good. The Seamus Heany translation is really accessible.
Books that I typically see in "classics" collections are Dracula, Frankenstein, Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, Wuthering Heights, etc. This
from the Cincinnati has a bunch on them.
