Good choice

The Republic by Plato is also pretty /fa/, and of course Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The incisive collection of Socratean dialogue is perfect for those vaporwave G R E E K fits, and Canterbury Tales has that Medieval England vibe that is the subject of many Gucci motifs in their A/W 2006 collection.

Someone literally just started browsing /lit/. Word of advice: tastes on that board (like every board) form in an echo-chamber. Don't take suggestions there as gospel. I did for a bit, and ended up wasting a lot of time on books I didn't enjoy. Instead, learn what you like (which you may very well be doing, I don't want to judge) and resist letting populist tastes influence your own. True plebeianism is dependency.
