Back to the Classics Challenge 2014

 

classics2014

Karen over at Books and Chocolate has agreed to host the Back to the Classics Challenge in 2014. If you’re considering the challenge for yourself I would recommend perusing the specific guidelines for yourself, including her definition of a classic.

Now, for the categories:

    Required:

    1. A 20th Century Classic: The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald

    2. A 19th Century Classic: A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court by Mark Twain

    3. A Classic by a Woman Author: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

    4. A Classic in Translation: Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    5. A Classic About War: For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway

    6. A Classic by an Author Who Is New To You: Some Do Not…: A Novel by Ford Madox Ford

    There are also five optional categories, which I would love to try, but I will conservatively stick with the original list in hopes of actual completion. Here’s to 2014 and the classics it holds!
