    This is a good way of sharing our enthusiasms with each other. I am going to limit myself to three titles, that is, saying ROMEO AND JULIET in contrast to the works of Wm. Shakespeare, which would swell to over 45 titles.
    1) THE TEMPEST by Wm. Shakespeare because the poetry is incandescent and the theme is universal forgiveness (That means everyone is redeemed!)
    2) THE DUINO ELEGIES by Rainer Maria Rilke (Death is Life's hidden side, not to be feared nor sought, but accepted when it comes in due time. THE READINESS IS ALL,
    and these ten poems make you ready,)
    3) THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH (Each of us has a journey of life to make. This book is a record of the first one written out. It's the archetype of every subsequent journey.)
