Drawing on a humanities course he taught for over two decades at Columbia, Gray discusses in individual essays 18 great works of literature: the Iliad and the Odyssey; the Oresteia; Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone; The Bacchae; The Frogs; the Aeneid ; Tristan ; Dante's Inferno; Montaigne's Essays; King Lear; Don Quixote; Gulliver's Travels; The Brothers Karamazov; The Waste Land; and Ulysses. In Gray's opinion, all works chosen deal with a search for self and ``enlighten the reader's own identity.'' He touches on theme, imagery, and structure; he also provides historical context. The bibliography cites the standard texts and includes suggested readings. A book most useful to students or general readers who want to know more about these great works, and an optional purchase.
