4 Best Must Read Out of School Program Books
The school curriculum contains a lot of gripping pieces of literature to read. Children learn about various famous writers epoch by epoch. Most of the times those texts are met warmly by pupils; however, there are some books that kids just cannot stand. Although the school literature list is still diverse, it lacks a few key pieces that must be definitely included into the curriculum. Even though you heard hardly anything about some of them, it does not mean they are worthless. Therefore, here is a list of the most required books that must be added to the school’s literature program.
The Illiad by Homer
As you may find this book kind of old, boring and useless, you will be greatly mistaken. It is not old – it is classic. It is not boring – it absorbs you after a few pages. It is not useless – the citation from this book are used in all the fields of people’s lives. “Give me a place to stand and I will move the Earth,” said Homer in his masterpiece. Now, this slogan is used by the giant corporations as the ultimate motivation. Epic battles, picturesque descriptions and unforgettable dialogs – this book is worth your time and efforts.
On the Road by Jack Kerouac
It is the encyclopedia of post-modernism. This piece of writing is easily and joyfully to read as it is all about rich people making terrible decisions. Who does not like to observe the unsuccessful life of the upper class? The easily read plot and the average size make it even more tempting. The name itself may seem not really popular, but do not judge the book by its cover.
The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser
This allegorical, but still educational book is actually a compilation of a few stories in one book. Originally created by Edmund Spenser, this book was intended to make fun of Queen Victoria. Perhaps, the most noticeable among all the stories may be the third one, where the author describes a lady knight Britomart. The main topic of the story is chastity from different perspectives. Even though it may seem reasonably boring, critics say, that even Shakespeare would recommend Spenser’s masterpiece.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
An exquisite love story that can be compared to Romeo and Juliet but with much fewer deaths. Subtle humor and endless wits from the side of Lizzie Bennett makes you think about your own sense of humor one more time. Darcy’s behavior in every communication makes you feel so much discomfort for him, but successful endings of these weird situations bring you such a desired relief. Extremely diverse book that will bring you only pleasure and joyful time-spending.
Enjoy reading the above-mentioned books!
