French collection through high school:

L'Odyssée - Homer
Les Mains Sales (Dirty Hands)- Sartre
Dom Juan - Molière
Phèdre - Racine
L'Ingénu - Voltaire
Liaisons Dangereuses - Choderlos de Laclos

English:

Complete works of Lewis Carroll
The Lord of the Rings trilogy
The Chronicles of Narnia
Black Beauty
Sense and Sensibility
The Secret Garden
Pinocchio
A Little Princess
Treasure Island

I figure those are what would count as 'classis literature.' Not sure how to define that, though.

It might not be the same for people, but a good way of getting access to some classic works is by downloading the kindle app for your pc and then finding them via the store for free.

Looking at the titles I've got there, they are:

Gulliver's Travels

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Beyond Good and Evil

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Frankenstein

Dracula

The Mysterious Island

The Shunned House

The Thirty Nine Steps

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Robinson Crusoe

Pride & Prejudice

Treasure Island

Aesop's Fables

Well worth downloading the Kindle app just to have the classics easily accessible. And I'm pretty sure there's more available.

I have the complete works of Lovecraft, the completes of Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, I have The Divine Comedy, Odyssey, and Troy. I have a few Shakespeare, but I was never really a fan of his work.
