While reading the mammoth near-700 page Ramayana, it suddenly struck me that to be true to this venture, I will have to re-read Moby Dick at some point in the distant future. And Wuthering Heights!! While there are no doubt devotees of both these classics of literature somewhere out there, all I could think was arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!
Back to the immediate future, I think I will postpone the other great Indian epic The Mahabharata just for a week or two to catch my literary breath and tackle some smaller works. The dates for many of these works are a matter of debate at best, so the next title will be Aesop’s Fables. I actually read these a year ago, so this will probably be a quick referesher over my favourites.
