Paradise Lost by John Milton

Translations of Plato's Republic and The Caterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer.
Chaucer translated The Republic at some point?! I never knew that! (or am I misreading what you've written?)

Some good reading you have there. The Republic is fascinating as a case, even if you disagree with many of its conclusions. Canterbury Tales can be genuinely funny (rare in a historical text) though other parts are a bit duller. Paradise Lost? I'd just advise you to persist with it, even if you occasionally find it hard work. It's worth it.
