> I've also created a new index on the sly called "Period Studies:
> Toward a Modern Library Curriculum." The following is from the
> introduction:
>
> "You can get a pretty good education (albeit with a Western dead
> white guy bias) reading the Modern Library. This index sorts the
> Modern Library titles into period studies for those who prefer to
> follow a reading plan based on traditional Classical Education (prep
> school/liberal arts college) models.
>
> "Just for fun, I've also included a listing of 19th & 20th century
> Russian literature (very popular during the Cold War).
> if this section/idea proves popular, I can include links to
> authoritative study materials and websites. Just let me know."
>
> The new page lives here:

> http://www.dogeared.com/Identifiers/titleIndexCurricula.html
>
> So there your are. Comments and additions are, of course, welcome.
