Sup rands I'm looking for old books, poems and classic works to read, they can be fiction or philosopher's writing, though nothing of the modern age!

The best one I can think of is Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift.
A true classic novel that came out in 1726. But I'm sure you've read it before.

I'd also recommend a 2010 film directed by Rob Letterman, starring Jack Black, which modernizes the original book. But watch the movie after you read the book. it makes everything so much more fun and exciting.
