Description

Why Read the Classics? is an elegant defence of the value of great literature by one of the finest authors of the last century.

Beginning with an essay on the attributes that define a classic (number one - classics are those books that people always say they are 'rereading', not 'reading'), this is an absorbing collection of Italo Calvino's witty and passionate criticism.
