Harvard Classics Project - Two New Books

June 01, 2020

I've recently completed and published two new books derived from The Harvard Classics which are available to purchase in digital format from Amazon. 

Lectures for a Liberal Education

Based on the 'Lectures' volume of the Harvard Classics anthology, this book aims to provide readers with the foundations of a liberal education through a series of essays by experts in their field. In addition to the original text, I have included extensive linked footnotes and links to free digital formats all of the texts referenced.

Covering history, poetry, natural science, philosophy, biography, prose fiction, criticism and the essay, education, political science, drama, voyages and travel and religion, this book is well-suited for self-study and perfect for lifelong learners who wish to study classic literature.

Readers Guide to a Liberal Education

This Reader's Guide to a Liberal Education is based on Eliot’s “Reading Guide” from Volume 50 of The Harvard Classics. It offers a "guiding hand" to self study in a variety of subjects including: history, religion, science, drama, poetry and narrative fiction.

Much of the original text remains: formatted and updated to be read seamlessly and smoothly on your device. Rather than refer to the volumes of the series, however, the literature referenced links directly to online resources where the texts can be downloaded for free. This allows you to select and study the material in your preferred order, rather than clog up your device with difficult to navigate texts. In addition, extensive footnotes will enhance your learning experience.

I think I've almost finished with projects related to The Harvard Classics now. The final book I'm working on has been a mammoth task since it's required so much research, and is related to The Harvard Classics Shelf of Fiction. While it's not yet quite ready for publication, I anticipate it will be complete by the end of the year.

If you have read or enjoyed any of my books, I would really appreciate your honest review on Amazon, Goodreads or your own blog/website. Please do feel free to let me know what you think, either by leaving a comment or getting in touch directly.
