For Sunday Reading

In a span of little over a month I have moved over such a wide swathe of literature from Albert Camus's "The Stranger" to TS Eliot's "The Waste Land" and now to Henry David Thoreau "Walden". All of these works are such defining works of their respective genre that are guiding lighthouses of their philosophy and intellectual thought. From Camus's Existentialism to Eliot's Modernism to Walden's Transcendentalism. Each of them such comprehensive universe in themselves and often confusing interpretations and boundaries that makes them hard to define and even harder to understand. I will probably some day may have so much understanding to write about what these '-isms' mean. In the meanwhile you can read about them here. I found a nice timeline on the same site that I am copying below. Happy reading!
