Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf (The Harvard Classics)
I am beginning what some will call a difficult, yet rewarding goal. In the next year or so, I will be reading and writing on the well known "Dr.Eliot's Five Foot Shelf," known as The Harvard Classics. My goal is to finish 51 volumes in the next year.
I hope is to use this Blog as my Journal, which will enable me to engage with my thoughts, ideas, confusions, logic, and analytical triumph in understanding these classics.
Once I complete 51 volumes of "The Harvard Classics," I intend to dive into the Great Books also known as the "Great Books of the Western World." I know that there are many other important works of the Eastern Canon and other cultural importance's out there, which I intend to read, but I have to begin somewhere.
I will write up a more in-depth summary of Dr.Eliot's "The Harvard Classics," and the Mortimer Adler's "The Great Books of the Western World," as I proceed to read,review,annotate and chew on these classics.
I will proceed to write about each book,page and paragraph as I see fit.
If you'd like more information, or simply looking to chat about these historical classics, please do not hesitate to contact me at LeonBasin@gmail.com
This is a beginning of self-education and self-improvement and I hope you will join me.
