Ideals and Languages


First I would like to thank everyone for their wonderful recommendations (since I never properly thanked all of you who helped me find Japanese Literature and various other requests).

I have started reading "The Sea Wolf" by Jack London and I'm shocked by the ideals held by Captain Wolf Larsen. Has anyone else read the book? If so, what would you suggest I read to better understand the ideals upheld by Humphrey Van Weyden and his captain?

On a completely other note, I realized I need to take a foreign language for my major, but I'm not sure which to take. Between French and German which will be most beneficial to studying Literature and the Humanities?

Thank you. =]
