Archer Has Made a Lot of Literary References. Did You Catch Them All?

Sterling Archer has always been one well-read secret-service agent, with his taste in books ranging from the erudite (hello, medieval French philosopher Peter Abelard!) to the whimsical (“One lousy Lorax!”). Indiewire compiled a supercut of all such literary references on Archer. (Well, almost all of them: sharp-eyed commenters pointed out that there were some references missing, like the fact that the dog Kazak is named after a dog in Kurt Vonnegut’s The Sirens of Titan). The bookish jokes range from classic Americana, like John Steinbeck and Herman Melville, to nerdier fare like X-Men and J.R.R. Tolkien. We could list them all, but really, we would prefer not to.
