You either love them, or you hate them. However, I love them.

I just finished reading Frankenstien by Mary Shelley; the text has been unchanged since 1818 - its year of publishing.

I love many of them, when they're genres I like to read. The classics have a lot of good writing, and most of those are freely available through e.g. the Gutenberg project. :)

It's Frankenstein (the typos confused you :P).

Are Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë and Frances Burney considered classic authors? :) I read Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Evelina and really liked them, especially the second. :D

I like the stories in many classics, but I like to have them written in a more modern way. For an instance, I love Shakespeare, but I can't understand for a second whats going on w/o help when reading it the way it was originally written.

They're easier to understand if you watch the movie version. We watched Much Ado About Nothing in class.

Love that movie!!

My 12th grade english teacher was pretty much the best I had. At the time I hated Shakespeare but he'd go over every line with us to make sure we understood not only what was written but what it meant. I don't think I would have graduated high school that year if it weren't for him, let alone become a Shakespeare fan.

The teacher I had this year was like that. Unfortunately, the teacher I'm going to have next year is hated by everyone.  :(

I preferred Much Ado to Romeo and Juliet, because it was actually cheery. Claudio was a whiny little girl though.  :P

You can download a free ebook copy of Jane Eyre in PDF at http://www.planetebook.com/Jane-Eyre.asp. No tiny print. :)

Should read Paradise Lost. It's am Epic Poem and on of the first poems of epic proportions to be published in England.  It's by John Milton. Like stated before with Shakespeare this one might be a bit hard to read as well.

O that I may enjoy reading literature. There are COUNTLESS pieces I have not read. It's a shame really. I'd say that certainly a majority of my reading occurs on this forum. Something I hope to change.... I dont know wĥat it is about reading, and especially the classics... but eh... I suppose it's not really my cup of tea. :(

Well, I guess you simply have other talents and interests, ma 'eylan! :)

About classics I like, I realized (pretty recently and with a certain surprise) that I appreciated several plays from Shakespeare. I actually found Othello and Twelfth Night enjoyable! :D
