For those who consider themselves true readers, the classics should be among their must-read. It is almost a moral duty to read the masterpieces that have marked the history of world literature.
We are not saying it, prominent writers have touched on this issue and all conclude the same: Reading the classics is a necessary decision for the entire reading community. Our wish is that you do not lag behind in this search and access the best books by classical authors in our virtual library.
The famous Italian writer, Italo Calvino, wrote an essay entitled Why read the classics? In which he raises all the reasons why it is a good idea to read classic works, including: “A classic is a book that never finishes saying what it has to say.”
He also affirmed that every reading of a classic is a rereading. Classical authors speak in a universal language, on topics that are relevant to human existence. Giving a classic a chance is giving the opportunity to ideas that have been installed in the collective unconscious, it is giving it the opportunity to inquire into fundamental concerns, to explore the emotions that move us all and to have the privilege of experiencing a way of art that will never go out of style.
Who does not have to his credit a reference like that of Romeo and Juliet? Who wouldn’t want to go around the world in 80 days? Who wouldn’t die of curiosity to know how Sherlock Holmes solves hundreds of impossible cases? A classic is not a work that has transcended time by chance, there are reasons for this, a series of elements are combined that make it a perfect piece that does not expire.
But immortality cannot be attributed only to books, but also to their writers. They were immortalized through their talent and with each reading of their works they have the opportunity to be reborn. A classic can also establish a relationship of identity with you for life, it can define part of who you are and accompany you like a talisman.
Give yourself the opportunity to find that author or book that will mark you forever, do not rule out that it may be a classic. Allow yourself to experience what the insignificance of time means versus what is memorable. We invite you to read our classic authors and try which of them you feel comfortable with, which style or genre you prefer and give yourself permission to enjoy it.
Here is a table with all the authors that we have developed, the order we present them is by date of birth.
