Classic Literature from Amazon.com
Experience the world of great literature for yourself with the great selection of classic literature from Amazon.com. Don’t worry, your old English teacher isn’t standing over your shoulder to lecture you on Latin roots; you can enjoy the discovery of these great books for yourself.
We have a great collection of classic literature, including many modern classics from around the world. You can find all of the most popular titles by American masters, like To Kill a Mockingbird, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Slaughterhouse Five, and The Bell Jar, or modern international classics like works from Italo Calvino, Milan Kundera, Chinua Achebe, and many more.
Many works of classic literature speak about topics that are still controversial and relevant to consider today, like censorship, government control, and cultural pressures. This can be great education on how much or how little the world has changed, and how similar our lives are to those who lived in previous generations. Grab yourself a copy of Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, or 1984 for a riveting read that is as relevant today as it was when it was written. If you love to hear works read aloud, or you want a hardcover that will survive traveling in your backpack, you can filter our classic literature by format to find great classic literature audiobooks, paperbacks, digital editions, and hardcovers.
We also carry a great selection of classic literature that has been passed down for centuries or, in some cases, millennia. Homer’s works, the Iliad and the Odyssey, take you through the bloody tragedy of the Trojan War and the politics and battles therein, as well as the various adventures of Ulysses after the war. You can also educate yourself on the complete works of Shakespeare, who has had more influence than any other single person on the modern English language.
