The Harvard Classics are a collection of the greatest works of literature, philosophy, education, science, politics, religion, poetry and drama. The Harvard Classics were created by Harvard professor Charles Eliot in the early part of the 20th century to ensure that any person regardless of circumstance could obtain an education that was the equivalent of a general university or liberal education in one year. This education was originally designed to be able to fit in 51 Volumes on a five-foot bookshelf. It has been put together online by My Harvard Classics.
