Frank N Magill, Masterpieces of World Literature [1989]

    282 entries: 252 monographical, 30 otherwise
    Unranked—arranged alphabetically by work

    Masterpieces of World Literature [1989], edited by Frank N Magill, was both a revival and culmination of Magill's earlier Masterplots series, which seemed to have set the template for student-oriented plot summaries and brief analyses of literary works published in pamphlet form, a market later dominated by Cliff's Notes. Masterplots continues on in the form of a large multi-volume reference set, the third edition published in 1996, the fourth in 2010, as well as several smaller thematic volumes, such as Women's Literature, Christian Literature, British and Commonwealth Fiction, and Nonfiction Series, that presumbly overlap with the general set. In the 1990's came the dual multi-volume books, Magill's Survey of World Literature and Magill's Survey of American Literature. These two series don't qualify for the "great books" project documented on this site. Not only do they present a larger, and thus less discerning, selection of books than found in Masterpieces, but they're organized by author, not literary work, with each author having two to four works analyzed; that is, they're more like a directory of authors, more of a reference work than a refined selection, that is, a canon or reading plan. In this sense, they're most similar to two of the excluded potential lists noted on the Guidelines page: Asa Don Hutchinson's The World's Best Books, Homer to Hemingway: 3000 Books of 3000 Years, 1050 B C to 1950 A D, Selected on the Basis of a Consensus of Expert Opinion [1953]; and What to Read [1929] by Thomas H English and Willard B Pope.

    Five of the entries by "unknown" in this list ('Hercules and the Twelve Labors', 'Jason and the Golden Fleece', 'Orpheus and Eurydice', 'Reynard the Fox', and 'Robin Hood's Adventures) are not specific literary works. Rather, Magill and his collaborators describe the story, or fable, more broadly, not emphasizing a specific work. Versions of the stories, or works in which the stories play a role, are mentioned, such as Ovid's Metamorphoses and Euripides' Alcestis for Hercules and the Twelve Labors. For Jason and the Golden Fleece, it is noted that Apollonius Rhodius' Argonautica gave the myth its first "formal expanded treatment." "The first known compilation of prose and poetry of the Robin Hood legend came in 1490 with the publication of the Lytel Geste of Robin Hood, by Wynkyn de Worde, a noted British printer." And, "the longest and most familiar version of [Orpheus and Eurydice] is found in Ovid's Metamorphoses (c. A D 8), and Ovid may well have been inspired by Vergil's less florid account, carefully placed at the dramatic end of his Georgics (c. 37-29 B C)." Furthermore, "this myth became the subject of the first secular drama in vernacular, Orfeo (1480; Orpheus), composed in the era of the Medicis by Angelo Poliziano (Politian). In 1600, the first Italian opera, Euridice, was composed. Christoph Gluck's Orfeo ed Eurydice (1762) is considered the first "modern" opera for its balance of music and tragic drama." None of these works are included in the list here; to include them would misrepresent the nature of the book, much like I'm not including additional works in the Seymour-Smith list.

    This list's Macroscopic 2013 page offers a transcription of the entries as they were originally presented in the book.
