"The Poetics" by Aristotle is a good place to start on the study of ancient Greek literature...

Then there are the great plays by Aristophanes, and Sophocles, etc.

Leviticus 19:33-34

33 When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them.

34 The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.


Song of Salomon Brothers 1991

The voice of the turtle was heard in the land, and it squawked, fucketh all the poor people and the 99 percent!
