     Ah, there's a subject: what works of great literature did we read
merely because they were referenced in an SF book?


***  Oh, I can play that one.  Spenser's _The Faerie Queene_, in full, 
because it was referenced in _The Incomplete Enchanter_.

At age 15, mind you.

Also, _The Confessions of St. Augustine_ because they were referenced in 
some Dorothy Sayers novel or another -- it was being read by Peter's 
future brother-in-law, iirc.

Ta, L.
