Self-Study English Literature (A 14-Book Beginner Plan)

When I first started self-studying English Literature, and classic literature in general, several years ago I was totally winging it.

I didn’t have a plan of attack to get a solid foundation in the subject.

I was basically just reading whatever stoked my interest and while that was fun, I think it slowed down my progress and left me doubting if I was actually spending my limited study time wisely.

To keep that from happening to you, I’ve created a beginner program for self-studying English Literature that should take you from novice to intermediate.

It includes 14 book recommendations across four categories that I wish I’d been reading as a beginner:

  • Books that teach you to read and analyze literature like a scholar.
  • Classic novels that are accessible to beginners.
  • Works of literary criticism that help you understand how literature works.
  • Anthologies to break into essays, short stories, and poetry.

To download this reading plan, simply subscribe to my weekly newsletter in the form below and I’ll send it to your email right now.

In the newsletter, I’ll share updates about my journey in self-study in literature as well as tips and tactics for reading the classics and gaining a well-rounded education.
