War and Peace
Is it possible to consider yourself a truly educated person without reading "War and Peace"? - I think the answer to this question is obvious.  Leo Tolstoy's epic novel War and Peace is considered to be the pearl of world literature. Critics of the whole world recognize “War and Peace” as a model of a new European novel, although it is not so full.

Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave
The story of the life of Frederick Douglas was written, as the title page reports, by Frederick Douglas himself and published in 1845. More than 250 years later, the narrative is still a powerful work, both for the bright window it provides for the practice of slavery in the American South and for its eloquent protection of human rights. The story tells the story of the life of Douglas from the moment of his birth to his escape from slavery at the age of 20 years. He reads both a personal testimony and an elaborate argument against slavery. Thus, Douglas's autobiography makes a strong...

An idealized picture of Sioux life that takes twelve-summers-old Little Bear through some prowess proving journeys in the company of his indulgent grandfather Great Bear. Together they decoy a Pawnee raiding party, hunt buffalo, track down a Crow horse thief- and finally Little Bear is awarded a roan colt by the warrior Flying Arrow. But while there is an abundance both of accurate description of nature- how to handle it skillfully, successfully,- and of smoothly delineated episodes- the writing here is dry and the Sioux are rather boringly endowed with all of the white man's virtues. A...
