    The Cosmos
    The grey rain curtain of this
    world rolls back and all turns
    to silver glass. And then you
    see it. White shores, and
    beyond, a far green country
    under a swift sunrise.

    The Bible:D
    But as for an answer your looking for, The Odyssey in up there. Man, Greek Mythology is awesome. But, I'm only 17 and not that intelligent. So, I'm starting with a teenage level Greek Mythology book "Percy Jackson and the Olympians". I'll read The Odyssey when I'm older and wiser

    Re: Greatest achievement in literature

    I'd would go with some of the works listed:
    Tao Teh Ching
    Leaves of Grass
    The Mountains of California
    Faust
    Divine Comedy
    Paradise Lost
    Hamlet
    Tao of Jeet Kune Do
    Just to name ... or rename a few

    I agree with those bolded, and must add two books, Anna Karenina - Tolstoy and the Idiot - Doestovsky, perhaps the Brothers Karamazov aswell.

    Just had a test on Hard Times .-. His narrative style is a bit annoying to be honest, but his satirical style keeps me happy.

    Re: Greatest achievement in literature

    I think the art of war is worth being on the list. I also recon more contemporary titles like Lord of the Rings + The Hobbit, and Harry potter are worthy of being included as great literature, but it depends on what your definition of literature is.
