Michael Dirda, Classics for Pleasure

    395 entries: 224 monographical, 171 otherwise
    Unranked—arranged topically

    Michael Dirda's Classics for Pleasure, offers the second-best (after Philip Ward's) combination of a list of works for readers to enjoy and a enjoyable work to read in and of itself; or we could say, it offers a selection of books less predictable than Fadiman's or Van Doren's, and his prose is at least superior to Van Doren's. (Powys's selection is relatively limited, and as a novelist himself doesn't seem to have put as much care and effort into his text, presumably because he was somewhat dismissive of the entire concept).

    Dirda's book specifically responds to Clifton Fadiman's Lifetime Reading Plan. The author explains that he read Fadiman's book as a child, adding, "Over the years I gradually meandered my way through nearly all the works" listed there. He then went on to a doctorate in comparative literature and a position as editor and writer at the Washington Post Book World. In turn, Dirda designed Classics for Pleasure not to overlap with the final, 1997 version of Fadiman's plan, arguing that the works listed there are "relatively familiar." As a result, Dirda's list ends up like Kanigel's Vintage Reading, directing its readers to "new authors and less obvious classics."

    The works listed here are split into categories defined by a broad theme. These are as such: 'Playful Imaginations' (1-Gorey); 'Heroes of Their Time' (31-Agee); 'Love's Mysteries' (Sappho-62); 'Words From the Wise' (63-75); 'Everyday Magic' (76-94); 'Lives of Consequence' (95-Auden); The Dark Side (117-128); Traveler's Tales (129-154); The Way We Live Now (155-180); Realms of Adventure (181-Hammett); Encyclopedic Visions (203-224).
