Okay, for Ecgberht, once more unto the breach with emphasis on "actually enjoy."
I reread my list from the first threadrelated discussion: Schullektüren - #89
and no, I'm afraid I did not actually enjoy very many of them. But a few of them came close, or I came back to them later.
Canterbury Tales -- only enjoyed in college, when I learned Middle English the same year as German and there was interesting overlap
poems, sonnets -- I loved John Donne in high school, which may say something about how gloomy I was at the time
Macbeth -- only enjoyed in grad school, when the prof pointed out all the blood and milk images
Great Expectations -- one of my least favorite Dickens, but have gone on to read almost everything else he wrote
Wuthering Heights -- later realized I disliked Emily Brontë but liked Charlotte and Anne much better, not to mention Gaskell
Return of the Native -- also read other things later by Hardy I liked better
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead -- was that for school or not? I wrote one of my college admissions essays on it, so maybe it was; at any rate I liked it, though I'm not sure I understood it
Writers I liked without ever having been exposed to them in school included George Eliot, Henry James, Conrad, and Tolstoy. (Maybe I liked long sentences.)
Writers I wished I had read more of included the earlier Americans -- I tackled Melville much too late in life. I also wished we had read more nonfiction -- 'Two Years Before the Mast' (Dana) was actually more interesting to me than 'Moby Dick.'
Or more historical fiction -- I have loved Dorothy Dunnett, Patrick O'Brian, Hilary Mantel, and others that may never be called literary fiction, but could have gotten many more young people interested in reading.
I'm also sorry my generation was too early to include modern black, Hispanic, Native American, feminist, gay, etc. writers. I sympathize with the teachers who worry that the canon has been weakened by political correctness, because I do still think anyone going on to higher education does need to know Beowulf and Chaucer and Shakespeare and all the others that aren't necessarily entertaining or fun to read. But at the same time I think it would have been good for me to read more minority viewpoints. The only black author I can think of at the moment that I read (on my own) was Jesse Jackson, whose children's books ought to be more widely known.
