All the Charm, All the Beauty of Life is Made Up of Light and Shadow
by Charlotte Reads Classics
As many of you will have already seen, o is reading Russian Literature in 2014.
A plan I had for this year but made no progress with whatsoever, other than writing many many enthusiastic posts about Anna Karenina. At the moment the list I am considering is:
- Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy, again, always
- War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy
- Crime and Punishment, Fyodor Dostoyevsky
- Fathers and Sons, Ivan Turgenev
- Doctor Zhivago, Boris Pasternak
- Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov
- One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
- A Hero of Our Time, Mikhail Lermontov
There are some re-reads but mostly I’d like to read the fill some of the more obvious gaps in my knowledge. I do love this time of year when it comes to making reading lists, and plans, and lists, and piles of books stacked by the bed, and more lists, and ambition, and learning, and more and more lists of life changing books.
