If you like to cultivate your brain and learn new things every day, like we do, but don’t have the time to read a whole book during the week, there is a number of websites that offer interesting reads. Here is just a few of them.
This is a great website if you love poetry or if you want to discover a collection of poems without the hassle of going into a bookstore to buy one. What’s great about it is that you can read classic poets like Edgar Allen Poe and John Keats or discover newer talents.
Classic Reader and Project Gutenberg will both provide you with the most known fiction and non-fiction titles from the public domain like the works of Leo Tolstoy, Jane Austen, Emmanuel Kant and René Descartes. You will definitely find your pick between the diversified sources that these websites provide.
Since, the British council is celebrating the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, it gives you a great opportunity to finally plunge into the literature behind some of the most beautiful plays and films of our time. Luckily, MIT has already made available all of Shakespeare’s works in one website.
Arts & Letters is a great resource website that curates news from around the web about the world of art and literature. You will find here reviews of new books, essays and opinion articles about your favorite books and works of art.
Curated by Maria Popova, this websites combines inspirational materials, insights, knowledge and information from different disciplines like art, science, design, history, philosophy, literature and more. The idea behind it was to “empower combinatorial ideas that are stronger, smarter, richer, deeper and more impactful.”
