John Erskine developed the General Honors course at Columbia out of which grew the Classics of Western Literature book, not to mention the entire "great books" movement. Van Doren and Adler both taught the course. Adler and Erskine both left for the University of Chicago around 1930, establishing that school as a second home for the "great books" movement. Erskine's book, The Delight of Great Books, published in 1928, is more of a selection of essays on literary works (or, in one case, an author and, in another, a genre) that I'm making into a list here. Unfortunately, like Farrar's Great Books, it does not include any ancient texts, and thus is not included in the final master list. It is transcribed here because of Erskine's significance.
Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur
The Faerie Queen
Romeo and Juliet
Walter Scott (incl. Woodstock; Waverley; The Pirate; The Heart of Midlothian; Quentin Durward; The Bride of Lammermoor)
The Ordeal of Richard Feverel
Modern Irish Poetry (incl. W B Yeats - 'The Wanderings of Oisin'; 'The Sad Shepherd'; 'Stolen Child'; 'He Remembers Forgotten Beauty'; 'The Old Men Admiring Themselves in the Water';
John Millington Synge;
A E (George W Russell) - 'Destiny';
James Stephens - Collected Poems; 'Barbarians')
Despite this last chapter's title, many of the works discussed are not poetry: W B Yeats - 'Dust Hath Closed Helen's Eye', included in The Celtic Twilight; The Land of Heart's Desire; Cathleen Ni Houlihan;
Douglas Hyde - The Well at the End of the World translation;
Lady Gregory - Cuchulain of Muirthemne;
John Millington Synge - Aran Islands; Riders to the Sea; The Playboy of the Western World;
James Stephens - Crock of Gold; The Charwoman's Daughter [published in the U S as Mary, Mary]; Here Are Ladies; Irish fairy tales.
Apropos the September 3 post, the Have You Read 100 Great Books? collection includes this list, sans the 'modern Irish poetry' entry. Also, that later version includes "Waverley Novels" for Walter Scott instead of the specific novels noted in Delight.
