The afternoon has slipped away, dinner will be late, and I haven't played with the new horse since lunchtime (Yes! We have our first horse! Our middle dd was gifted a 1-yr-old Futurity horse and he was dropped off yesterday!). The good news is that I've narrowed down some additions to our British Lit studies that I wrote about here and here.
I *plan* on incorporating the following Catholic British authors into our studies of British Literature. If you see any that are not recommended or have other recommendations I missed, please let me know. Here is my disclaimer: I have not previewed these yet so this is still a working copy. As always, each family should preview and decide what literature is appropriate for their children. I tend to be on the prudish side :).
I will probably choose one from each author below.
Utopia by St. Thomas More:
The Dream of Gerontius by John Henry Newman:
The Importance of Being Ernest by Oscar Wilde:
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Wilde:
Graham Greene: They seem much more "adult" but these are what I plan on skimming/previewing and hopefully I'll come back and update after I go through them.
The Power and Glory by Graham Greene looks like a good adult read - I would need to preview it for dc.
Our Man in Havana by Greene:
Journey without Maps by Greene:
Monsignor Quixote by Greene (it sounds a little lighter than the others I looked at and may prove interesting to dds since we recently read Communist Manifesto):
Collected Short Stories by Graham Greene - this may be the best source to find something appropriate:
On to G.K. Chesterton...
The Complete Father Brown Mysteries:
Favorite Father Brown Stories:
The Ballad of the White Horse (epic poem):
The Everyman Chesterton:
Poems for all Purposes:
A Selection from his Non-Fictional Prose:
Eugenics and Other Evils:
Chesterton and George Bernard Shaw were friends that vehemently disagreed. This is a free Kindle download:
George Bernard Shaw:
Plays by Bernard Shaw:
This isn't related to anything but I am so curious... Springs of Humor (Goethe, Chesterton, Horace, Shakespeare, Shaw)
