This book is an ideal guide for all those who wish to read more of the world's great books, but find themselves bewildered by the very richness of the choices open to them. The Editor has selected one hundred of the greatest books of all time, and a team of skilful writers have described and discussed them in a penetrating yet highly readable way. The journey starts with Homer and finishes with Pasternak thus spanning three thousand years.
This book will prove invaluable, both as a useful work of reference and as a stepping-stone to the wisdom and delight which is to be found in the world's great books.
