For many of us, the first books we remember spending time with were volumes from this or that encyclopedia. Further, it didn't matter a great deal how out of date the entries were; in fact, differences from popular opinion just added interest. Of course, one didn't get poetry there; nevertheless, only the narrow-minded would take encyclopedias as being in conflict with poetical viewpoint.

My little library only has room for a one volume encyclopedia: Aristotle's Basic Works.
