Great works of literature free hearts & minds

Besides Charles Dickens' and Victor Hugo''s magnum opuses, there are also the still very famous novels and stories of Leo Tolstoy, Miguel de Cervantes, Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway and many other masterful authors for us to explore the universe of Western literature. Enjoying works of literature liberates the minds from utilitarian 'scientism' and faith'-based dogmatism. Also, it opens up hearts for human concerns.
