Classics that won't leave you Depressed

I remember from my high school days that most of the literary classics they made us read were really depressing. Here's a few classics that are happy / not totally depressing. (No guarantees anything is spelled correctly)
  • A Merchant of Venice, Shakespeare
  • A Mid Summer's Night Dream, Shakespeare
  • The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare
  • (Basically any comedy by Shakespeare)
  • My Antonia, Willa Cather
  • O Pioneers, Willa Cather
  • Brothers Karamazov, Dostoyesky
  • The Inferno, Dante
  • Cantebury Tales, Chaucer
  • Silas Marner, George Elliot
As you can see, the list is short. If you have any to recommend, let me know.
