书,书,书。它们将延长您的寿命,减轻您的压力并提高您的智力。它们会给您更饱满,浓密的头发。

无论阅读对人有什么难以喘息的要求,有一点是肯定的:在一本伟大的小说中迷失自己是人生中最持久,最可靠的快乐之一。工作的满足感时有时无,伙伴情绪起伏不定,但你总能依靠永恒的文学来将自己带到另一个世界。从简·奥斯丁(Jane Austen)高雅的起居室到1984年的无气塔楼,小说都有着独特的表现。他们同时说出自己的内心和心灵。他们教您有关摩天登录世界的历史,摩天登录未来的可能性以及摩天登录灵魂的构造。

那你会从哪里开始?这是一个让人紧张的问题,因为显而易见的答案--“文学经典”--意味着主要是已逝的,白人的万神殿。几个世纪以来,权力结构发挥了作用,这意味着非常狭窄的一群人有机会对人类的状况发表普遍看法。不可能忽略这些偏见:摩天登录至少可以做的是认知它们,包括不同的观点,并在这里介绍一些优秀的资源,以探索更多摩天登录应该阅读的作家。

《远大前程》 查尔斯·狄更斯

狄更斯曾是维多利亚时代的社会良心,但不要因此而失去兴趣。《远大前程》是一个喧嚣的孤儿皮普,可爱的埃斯特拉和受挫的哈维森小姐之间的故事。这本首先以连载形式写成的书,让你几乎没有时间从一篇扣人心弦的篇章之后恢复好准备好迎接狄更斯下一篇华丽,幽默,发自内心的散文式写作的召唤。

《1984》乔治·奥威尔

《1984》这部反乌托邦小说的终极作品是有先见之明的,因此已成为陈词滥调。但是,请忘记电视台的“老大哥”或101室的陈旧琐事:原始影片并没有失去它的狂暴力量。奥威尔对极权主义的机制很感兴趣,他设想了一个对苏联存在偏执监视的社会并给出了令人震惊的结论。摩天登录的英雄温斯顿试图抵御一个灰色的世界,在这个世界中,屏幕注视着您的一举一动,但是当你在脑海中开始设想这个状态时,勇敢最终将是徒劳的。

《百年孤独》加布里埃尔·加西亚·马克斯

加西亚·马克斯讲述了在哥伦比亚的一个小镇中,布恩迪亚家族七个世代,持续半个世纪的,充满活力而令人着迷的故事。 神奇的写实主义与新闻工作者对细节的关注以及诗意的感性相结合,使马克斯的魔幻现实主义的写作风格独树一帜。

《豹》 朱塞佩·托马西·迪·兰佩杜萨

托马西·迪·兰佩杜萨的这部情节设定在19世纪,正在掀起一场革命的西西里岛的小说,于1958年作者死后出版。 仪表堂堂的王子唐·法布里佐在旧世界的最后主持了几天一个靠近巴勒莫的小镇,在这个世界中,阶级阶层稳定并得到了接受。 加里波第的部队占领了该岛,一个新世界将随之而来。 这是对政治变革及其产生的人物的深刻而诗意的沉思。

《呼啸山庄》 艾米莉·勃朗特

还会有另一部小说比《呼啸山庄》更充满激情吗? 将暴躁的女主人公凯瑟琳·恩肖和残酷的英雄希思克里夫召集在一起的力量是强大而不可控制的,但植根于彼此童年时代的奉献精神,希思克里夫听从了凯茜的所有命令。 很难想象这部小说曾经鼓动了沉睡的人,艾米莉·勃朗特的对自然的视野充满诗意。

Books, books, books. They will increase your lifespan, lower your stress and boost your intelligence. They will give you fuller, thicker hair.

Whatever the breathless claims about reading, one thing is certain: losing yourself in a great novel is one of life’s most enduring and dependable joys. Job satisfaction comes and goes, partners enrapture and abscond, but you can always fall back on the timeless ability of literature to transport you to a different world. From Jane Austen’s mannered drawing rooms to the airless tower blocks of 1984, novels do something unique. They simultaneously speak to the heart and mind. They teach you about the history of our world, the possibilities of our future and the fabric of our souls.

So where do you start? It’s a fraught question, because the obvious answer – “the literary canon” – means a pantheon of predominantly dead, white dudes. The power structures at play for centuries have meant that a very narrow band of people have been given the opportunity to say something universal about the human condition. It’s impossible to ignore these biases: the least we can do is acknowledge them, include different perspectives, and point to some excellent resources here to discover more writers we should be reading.

Great Expectations, Charles Dickens

Dickens was the social conscience of the Victorian age, but don’t let that put you off. Great Expectations is the roiling tale of the orphaned Pip, the lovely Estella, and the thwarted Miss Havisham. First written in serial form, you barely have time to recover from one cliffhanger before the next one beckons, all told in Dickens’ luxuriant, humorous, heartfelt prose.

1984, George Orwell

The ultimate piece of dystopian fiction, 1984 was so prescient that it’s become a cliché. But forget TV’s Big Brother or the trite travesty of Room 101: the original has lost none of its furious force. Orwell was interested in the mechanics of totalitarianism, imagining a society that took the paranoid surveillance of the Soviets to chilling conclusions. Our hero, Winston, tries to resist a grey world where a screen watches your every move, but bravery is ultimately futile when the state worms its way inside your mind.

100 Years of Solitude, Gabriel Garcia Marquez

The energy and enchantment of Garcia Marquez’s story of seven generations of the Buendia family in a small town in Colombia continue to enthral half a century on. Hauntings and premonitions allied to a journalistic eye for detail and a poetic sensibility make Marquez’s magical realism unique.

The Leopard, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa

Published posthumously in 1958, Tomasi di Lampedusa’s novel is set in 19th century Sicily, where revolution is in the air. The imposing Prince Don Fabrizio presides over a town close to Palermo during the last days of an old world in which class stratifications are stable and understood. Garibaldi’s forces have taken the island and a new world will follow. It’s a deep and poetic meditation on political change and the characters that it produces.

Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë

Will there ever be a novel that burns with more passionate intensity than Wuthering Heights? The forces that bring together its fierce heroine Catherine Earnshaw and cruel hero Heathcliff are violent and untameable, yet rooted in a childhood devotion to one another, when Heathcliff obeyed Cathy’s every command. It’s impossible to imagine this novel ever provoking quiet slumbers; Emily Brontë’s vision of nature blazes with poetry.
