Went to Bookpoint at Bras Basah Complex to search for 2nd hand books for the boys. While searching I found these that brought back memories!
"The Enchanted Island" - first literature text I encountered in secondary one. "Cry, the Beloved Country" was studied in secondary two. Then secondary three was "Julius Caesar", followed by the most dreaded "The Merchant of Venice" for O levels. It's amazing I could still find the exact edition of the books which I've used before!
These classic literature are definitely a keeper. Think I'll probably re-read "Cry" again, but definitely not those Shakespeare plays. Hmm...who knows? one of my boys may take fancy in these classic literature?
