  1. Classics offer excellent storytelling, splendid descriptive language and well developed characters, along with a glimpse into the manners, politics and philosophy of the past that is less accessible through non-fiction history books. There's just something attractive and intriguing about a book that has stood the test of time and offers a clean, and time-tested look into history and storytelling.

  5. Hiya, Happy Christmas. I love the fact that a man can ride off on a horse to the rescue and that life, death and poverty were real concerns. Far more scope for drama and heroism.

  8. I enjoy the classics because they are timeless and eternal. They are always relevant and have become part of our history. Perfect example... The Christmas Carol. I swear it is remade over and over and over almost every year because it's a story that still speaks to people even though it's hundreds of years old.

  20. I don't know, did they write better? Was there more care taken with language? It seems like it, but I don't want to belittle writers today. Even a childs classic like Charlolette's web seems like any generation can read it and still feel connected

    1. Oh! Forgot to say this: I appreciate the classics because the literary style was different then so it makes a change from the current style. Jane Austen in particular had a style of writing that just speaks to me.

  35. I, by no means love all the classics but I do enjoy novels by Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Emily Bronte to name but a few. They transport us back to a time that we haven't experienced and I find them quite compelling reading. Beautifully written with a great depth to them.

  42. I remember reading some of the classics when I studied A level English Lit and I just fell in love with them, because they were so pure (if that makes sense?) and sometimes a little naive and that really appealed to me. I don't know why I haven't continued to read them... I really should!

  51. I think that you mean Austen, Dickens, the Brontës, Conrad. I like to think (hope) that their deep command of language will hold me to a higher standard too.

  54. Classics always seem to have a good life lesson in them. Also I love how they whisk you away to a place in history, so different from today!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Do love the fact that you are transported back to where manners were used, doors were opened for ladies and so on. The fact that they are still relevant for today and the language is lovely. Really would have loved to have been a "lady" and been driven around in carriages or even tried side-saddle riding,but think I would have been more a "servant" or a "maid" - another thing I love about the Classics plus the gorgeous grand houses.
