      It is not a bad list. I usually have reservations about having in the same list fiction, philosophy and theology, but the books seem fine.
      That said, do normal Spanish people read and understand St John of the Cross? He is a theologian of the highest quality, he is a Doctor of the Church, but he is known as a really hard read.

        Yes, we do read him, or at least I did in spanish literature classes. We read his poetry, which I found to be pretty damn good.

    Spanish philologist here (native spanish speaker):

    Don Quixote is the most overrated book in history.

    The Bible at number 6... lol. Don't even have to explain anything about this one.

    The Illiad kinda sucks.

    Ficciones is also overrated.

    The Metamorphosis, Pedro Páramo, crime and Punishment, Poeta en Nueva York and Heart of Darkness are based.

    The hubris of you literary cucks is amazing, you really think the greatest books of all time are all novels? Where are the history books or scientific opuses (opi) like newton's principia without which the computers you are typing on would not even be invented yet?

      The thing is that, if you teally take every type of book as "literature" then almost no novels, if any, would make the top 100. It would all just be the scientific and engineering books that the modern world is built on.

      The list doesn't solely contain novels. It also has Philosophy and theology books.
      And I don't get why scientific treatises should rank higher than they do.

        Because the principia is one of the most important scientific works ever made. In terms of importance, only the bible has more influence on our world, but you can't see that while driving your car and typing on your computer.

            Best does not define greatness in the least lmao. Best at everything is closer to what people mean when they say great, best at what? And me reading or not reading it has no bearing on anything. I don't need to read the bible to understand its influence, just like i don't need to read the koran to see muslims go crazy over what mohammed said or didn't say.

            Again your moronic assumption links influence to reading it. I have read it, in fact you could argue that every physics and math student since newton has read it and needs to read it in order to graduate, just not in the original latin form. So this moronic argument you are making does not hold any water.

            No they don't. It's been superceded by more up to date text books, as you well know. Unlike eg Hamlet which has not been superceded by more up to date plays. You aren't doing a very good job of arguing your corner are you?

            That doesn't mean anything, the bible also has tonnes of editions and has also removed some books but its teaching are still relevant today to christians?? When you read a mechanics book, you are reading newton, whether you read him in latin or tagalog is irrelevant, it does not take away from the book's influence, you have to try to come up with better arguments than this slop

            We are not talking about newton's entire corpus of which are books about calculus and optics and even alchemy, we are talking about mechanics, so your analogy is moronic. In that book he lays out the scientific method, not just mechanics, he shows scientists how to do science using math and that is the way that science has been done since the book's publication. A book btw that also influenced philosophers like kant and hume.
