Share & Discuss - What Makes the Classics Classic?
Is it the book’s qualities? The author? The story or message? Or perhaps something else? Let’s figure it out together!
First, please bring with you the title of a work you consider a classic. We'll share these to establish a starting point for figuring out what “classic” means to each of us. Then we will continue our exploration of the concept through a moderated discussion. We’ll delve into questions such as:
*What qualities and characteristics do the classics have in common?
*Is the quality of being “classic” something that can transcend culture, time, or other parameters?
*Do the classics have messages that are useful for our world today?
*Do you (voluntarily) read the classics?
*Do you find you have related to the classics differently at different points in your life? Why do you think this might be?
*How has your expat life influenced your feelings towards classic literature?
We look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas!
