Once again, we are going to allow readers to choose which books they would like to read over the next few months.
Any good reading program must contain it's fair share of Shakespeare, and our group is not to be left out. Therefore, this fall, readers who are not familiar with the plays of Shakespeare may want to read one or more of the following choices:
Oxford Shakespeare webpages.
In addition to the above plays, readers may want to also read through the Sonnets, which can be found here as well.
Readers may wish to read from a selection of John Donne's poems as well as his most famous sermons. A nice selection of poems can be accessed via Luminarium's website.
Izzak Walton's brief biography of John Donne is a nice compliment to reading the poems and sermons. You can find it here: http://www.bartleby.com/15/2/
For readers interested in reading Hobbes, consider "The Leviathan" as an alternative to our other selections. You can find a very nice HTML formatted version via Oregon State's website.
Discussion questions as well as some general background information and study notes can be accessed via Sparknotes. General biographical information can be found via Wikipedia or another online encyclopedia.
