This week’s Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish is top ten books you would teach if you taught ______ class. I like that this week’s topic has a bit of freedom with it. I think I’m going to say that I’m teaching Exploring the World’s Classic Novels. Yea, that sounds like a class I would totally teach. Okay, so, I’m going to pick the top classical books I would teach if I were the professor of Exploring the World’s Classic Novels.
NOVELS I WOULD TEACH
As you can see, I chose a bit of a different format for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. It’s because as I was searching out covers to my favorite classics, I was also rediscovering all the classic short stories I love. I’m choosing to include a separate Top Ten Tuesday for those. So, this would be another class I would be teaching called Exploring the World’s Classic Short Stories. I feel like these two classes would go hand in hand and that I would love teaching both.
SHORT STORIES I WOULD TEACH
*The pictures with asterisks to their lower right need a bit more clarification, since I couldn’t find covers for the individual short stories I would teach. So, in order: “The Garden Party” by Katherine Mansfield, “The Standard of Living” by Dorothy Parker, “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and “The Saint” by V.S. Pritchett.
Okay, well, there you have it. My Top Ten Tuesday that somehow turned into 2 Top Ten Tuesdays. I really like classics, can you tell? I love discussing what the writers may have meant, since most of them you can’t simply ask anymore. These are all definitely my favorites. What are some of you favorite classics?
