The Harvard Classics series is an incredible collection of the most important literary works, compiled by Charles Eliot (1834 – 1926), then president of Harvard University.  Eliot stated that a liberal arts education could be supplemented by reading 15 minutes a day from classic works stored on a five foot shelf.  For this reason, the series is also known as the Five Foot Shelf. 
Volume 28 contains literary classics by American and British writers of the past few centuries, including the following works: 
Jonathan Swift by William Makepeace Thackeray 
The Poetic Principle by Edgar Allan Poe
The Idea of a University by John Henry Newman
Walking by Henry David Thoreau
The Study of Poetry by Matthew Arnold

John Milton by Walter Bagehot
