Reading the Classics

My translation mentor told me to read more classics years ago, I was too lazy to follow up. Now I feel the need to really recharge with words from literary masters. Sometimes the benefit isn’t obvious until years later, when the accumulated knowledge paves the way for something else. Maybe I’ll start with Thoreau, but it may be too dense just now, think I’ll cut my teeth with that short stories anthology from Folio Society this week.
