17 of the Best of the Ancient Classics (BC)

These are the classical texts I read in high school and college that I actually liked! Full of passion, love, sacrifice, fate, and prime storytelling, they contain deep insights into human life, and I highly recommend them!

  1. I loved Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics! And Plato’s Phaedrus! Also, I think Gilgamesh is very fascinating. And, of course, Sophocles’s tragedy about my favorite character from Greek mythology: Prometheus Bound.
