it is simple just say what ur favourite piece of literature is, that was before 1500 CE (Common Era) and explain why you like it so much (if you can explain)
I personally like the Divine Comedy by Dante, The Illiad, and the Odyssey by Homer, i just think they are very interesting and shows you the way of thinking of that time, and also what people though of entertainment during that time

i searched and did not find anything like this, but if it is a duplicate sorry

I really want to say The Rape of Nanking but that was in 1997(?) and about the 1937-1938 Nanking Massacre. I remember reading something along the lines of History of the Peloponnesian (I spelled that so wrong) War, and it's a translation of the original which is very old.

Greek and Roman mythology really amuses me. I like the Iliad and the Odyssey by Homer also.

I have Plato's "The Republic", the translator did a very poor job.
