I do think that there are works that everyone should read because they tell us who we are as human beings living in history. I would start with the Bible, the Odyssey and the Iliad, the works of Sophocles, Chaucer, Shakespeare. I think everyone should read David Copperfield, Middlemarch, Wuthering Heights, the essays of Virginia Woolf, not only because they will — by a sort of osmosis — improve one’s prose style, but because they can also sharpen one’s ability to think logically, to follow an argument and understand a complex sentence. —Francine Prose
