Classic Novels that Should be Taught in School

Why should one have read the following before hitting adulthood:

a. The list below covers a wide spectrum of characters from many walks of life. (The wider the spectrum the better a person can problem solve how to react to all kinds of people in the world, create more compassion and acceptance and open mindedness towards others, and even come to appreciate all walks of life.)

b. To have an awareness that there is good and evil in the world and how to respond to it as well as what consequences our choices can lead to in the end is a good reminder to anyone that we should all look before we leap.
1 Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
2 1894 by George Orwell
