Descripcions

Set out below are more than 500 of the western world's greatest books, spanning the period from BC to 1954. Included are works by authors who died before 1955, and whose works are thus in the public domain in Australia.

The list has been compiled from some of the titles appearing in 500 Classics Reviewed, Salem Press, 1995 and 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, Ed. Peter Boxall, ABC Books, 2006.

How does one decide which books are "great"? Wikipedia, has an article on the Western Canon which aims to address this issue. The article contains references and links to other web sites.
