Great Books was a documentary series on The Learning Channel that
explored the literary and historical impact of great works of fiction
and non-fiction, which ran from 1993 through 2002. Hosted by actor
Donald Sutherland ("Hunger Games"), the series examined classic novels
such as "Don Quixote" by Miguel Cervantes, "Moby Dick" by Herman
Melville, and "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor Dostoyevsky in the
context of their times. The series also looked at modern classics such
as Joseph Heller's "Catch-22," Normal Mailer's "The Naked and the Dead"
and "The Autobiography of Malcolm X."
