      • I know, believers in the classics think that all people should read and like these books, and that without, we are terribly uneducated, we, the non-readers. And this might be somewhat correct.
        However, I’ve been a ferocious reader all my life and don’t feel I’ve missed out on much by not reading the classics we didn
        ‘t read in school.
        Besides, each language has its own classics and I’ve switched linguistic area and reading language three times in my life. I would never see the end of it if I’d read the language-specific classics each time. 🙂
