内容简介


Overview

When Charles William Eliot assembled The Harvard Classics, more commonly known as “The Five-Foot Shelf,” and later the "Shelf of Fiction", he gathered this epic collection of key works which he thought would best represent “the progress of man… from the earliest historical times to the close of the nineteenth century.”

In his introduction to The Harvard Classics, Eliot likens the collection to a portable university. He does not intend it to resemble a museum display-case of the world’s best books. The volumes are not numbered in any particular order, although Eliot suggested that they be approached as a set of six courses:

* The History of Civilization
* Religion and Philosophy
* Education
* Science
* Politics
* Criticism of Literature and the Fine Arts

However, of all the lessons to be learned, the most profound might be “Progress”—progress in each area of Western culture, and perhaps even more, progress in the moral quality of humanity as a whole. Despite our irregular climb from barbarism to civilization, Eliot had complete faith in “the upward tendency of the human race.” His optimism in the progress of humanity informed and influenced the scope of this collection—no aspect of the humanities is left untouched.

Famed author Virginia Woolf wrote, “On or about December, 1910, human character changed,” referring not to a specific event, but to a new cultural climate, one that became known as modernism. The rise of modernism prompted Dr. Eliot to create a separate 20-volume collection of fiction to supplement his first collection of classics. These two collections come together to create The Harvard Classics and Fiction Collection (71 volumes).

This massive collection represents a cross section of the literary forces which effectively shaped our society. Universally regarded as one of the most comprehensive and well-researched anthologies of all time, these books cover every major literary figure, philosopher, religion, folklore and historical subject through the twentieth century. From “The Five-Foot Shelf” come the writings of Plato, John Milton, Plutarch, Augustine, Dante, More, Luther, Pasteur, Pascal, and others. Volume 51 contains 60 lectures, introducing and summarizing the fields of religion, history, poetry, natural science, philosophy, biography, prose fiction, criticism and the essay, education, political science, drama, voyages and travel. The “Shelf of Fiction” contributes the works of authors like Fielding, Dickens, Poe, Hugo, Tolstoy, Austen, and Dostoyevsky. In all, The Harvard Classics and Fiction Collection totals over 33,000 pages of the most notable writings of all time.

God reveals himself through history and literature—through the thoughts of philosophers, the characters of great fiction, and the cadences of poetic verse. These classics are vital tools for study and ministry, because they cultivate the life of the mind and reveal the intricacies of human nature.
