The First Five

O Muse! Bestow us the gall to research, read, and ruminate over the themes, archetypes, and philosophies present within each narrative in order to develop and articulate a coherent message as we dialogue with our colleagues, neighbors, and ourselves. Indeed, a close study of just one piece below is grounds for decades of professional devotion. Nevertheless, we carry on with our task. We must carry on.

The first list to occupy the thought-space in our ever-unfolding days:

Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu

Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche

Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

a) The Iliad b) The Odyssey by Homer
