Book Description

Feb. 1 2010 Five Foot Shelf of Classics
Author name not noted above: William Harrison. Translator name not noted above: Lord Berners. Originally published between 1909 and 1917 under the name "Harvard Classics," this stupendous 51-volume set-a collection of the greatest writings from literature, philosophy, history, and mythology-was assembled by American academic CHARLES WILLIAM ELIOT (1834-1926), Harvard University's longest-serving president. Also known as "Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf," it represented Eliot's belief that a basic liberal education could be gleaned by reading from an anthology of works that could fit on five feet of bookshelf. Volume XXXV features essential works of the Renaissance in England and France: • "Chronicles," by Frenchman JEAN FROISSART (c. 1337-c. 1405), documenting the causes and early battles of the Hundred Years War • "The Holy Grail," by English writer SIR THOMAS MALORY (c. 1405-1471), selections from his legendary Morte d'Arthur • "A Description of Elizabethan England," by English clergyman WILLIAM HARRISON (1534-1593), a vital source for understanding the world of William Shakespeare
