Reading List for Twelve Months of Classic Literature 2014

Classics Club is hosting an event in which the participants will be reading or writing about a different category each month of 2014. Personally, I think this is a great way to explore literature and I look forward to what others will be reading and writing in 2014. I will participate in many of the categories and will be posting research and reviews right here on Weekly Zen. And I will be tweeting @WeeklyZen (#cc12months). Here is the list of categories for 2014 from Classics Club:

  • January: William Shakespeare (or his contemporaries. Elizabethan England, etc)
  • February: Harlem Renaissance / African-American Literature.
  • MarchFeminist Literature / Persophone / Virago Literature 
  • AprilTranscendentalist literature (or its inspirations/influence in literature)
  • MayPostcolonial Literature / World Literature.
  • JuneWorld War One and/or The Lost Generation. Modernist literature.
  • JulyPost-Modernist literature.
  • AugustThe Enlightenment Thinkers 
  • SeptemberRomantic Literature
  • OctoberLGBT literature
  • NovemberVictorian Literature
  • DecemberFreebie Month – Clearly we couldn’t cover everything in the prior eleven months. What wasn’t touched upon above that you want to explore/highlight/expand upon? Pick an author, movement or category within literature that means something to you and write or read about it to finish out the year.
