    Literature: What Every Catholic Should Know
    by Joseph Pearce

    In Literature: What Every Catholic Should Know, Joseph Pearce provides a survey of literary works of which all Catholics should be aware. Beginning with Homer and Virgil, the book progresses chronologically through the greatest works of all time, including Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Dickens, Chesterton, Eliot, Tolkien, and Lewis.

    ''I will recommend Pearce's compelling new study to every student whom I teach.''
    --Jonathan Thorndike, PhD, Professor and Senior Fellow, Belmont University Honors Program

    ''This book is an invaluable resource.''
    --David Lyle Jeffrey, FRSC, Distinguished Professor of Literature and the Humanities, Baylor University

    ''This is an eloquent, keenly reasoned, aptly documented, and indisputably cogent book that belongs in every undergraduate library and that should be required reading by every student who goes to these classics for enlightenment and enchantment.''
    --Philip C. Kolin, Distinguished Professor of English (Emeritus), University of Southern Mississippi

    ''This book is a treat for the novice and the lover of Great Books alike, and a humanizing call for Catholics to draw on all the rich and ample resources of our Western literary tradition.''
    --Daniel J. Mahoney, Augustine Chair in Distinguished Scholarship, Assumption College

    ''I love this book because there s not a hint of 'Eat your spinach' about it. Pearce's reading program is pure pleasure. It can make the world a happier place.''
    --Mike Aquilina, Author, A History of the Church in 100 Objects
