If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. ~ Adlai Stevenson

Narnia Lit List Revised

This is a revised version of my original list that focuses on fewer titles overall. It assumes a basic familiarity with Greek and Roman mythology, and perhaps a little Norse mythology as well.

King Lear (children's version)
Questing Knights of the Faerie Queene
The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe 
William Shakespeare's Macbeth (children's version)
William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream (children's version)
The Arabian Nights 
Prince Caspian 
Rip Van Winkle (reminds me of the sleeping Lords in Voyage) 
The Wanderings of Odysseus  
King Arthur & His Knights of the Round Table
Voyage of the Dawn Treader
William Shakespeare's Hamlet (children's version)
In Search of a Homeland: The Story of the Aenid
Gulliver's Travels   
The Silver Chair
The Seven Wise Princesses: A Medieval Persian Epic
William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (children's version)
The Prince and the Pauper
The Horse and His Boy
Six Great Sherlock Holmes Stories
The Story of the Treasure Seekers
The Magician's Nephew
At The Back of the North Wind 
Paradise Lost for Children
Stories From Dante
Animal Farm
The Last Battle

I also think that Our Island Story would make a nice addition to this study, perhaps ead at the rate of three (very short) chapters each week.
