Invitation to the Classics - "Canon" vs. "Classic"

I've begun reading. Worthwhile insights even in the forward / front matter.
  • Distinguishing characteristic of a "Classic" vs. an individual entry in a "Canon": a classic is perennial.
Reminded of Throeau's observation: "Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all..."(citation needed)
