    Everything you ever wanted to know about my favorite literature.

    Of course each country has its own favorite literature:

    Greece's Odyssey of Ulysses written in the 8th century BC by Homer.

    Italy's La (divina) commedia (1321) by Dante Alighieri.

    England's Hamlet (1601) by William Shakespeare.

    Spain's (El Ingenioso Hidalgo) Don Quixote (de la Mancha) (Part I, 1605; Part II, 1615) by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.

    France's Le misanthrope (1666) by (Jean-Baptiste Poquelin) Molière.

    Germany's Faust (first part, 1808; second, 1832) by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

    Of course don't forget the literature for children:

    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872) by (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) Lewis Carroll illustrated by Sir John Tenniel

    or not only for kids:

    Le Petit Prince (1942) written and illustrated by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

    As I can never remember my French, here is a web page with two French expressions.

    more for children.

    There are two authors I like:

    Niccolo Machiavelli and Friedrich Nietzsche.

    One of the best introductions to Franz Kafka I read: Introducing Kafka by David Zane Mairowitz and Robert Crumb. (see most of his work on Gutenberg)
    Currently I was reading a book by Paul Krugman (webpage). Another interesting author for slate is Steven Landsburg author of the The Armchair Economist and Fair Play. Also check out my economics section.
