I studied Euclidean Geometry in high-school, and I have not studied anything relates to geometry since I started studying in university. I am now intending to study Algebraic Geometry, however, I lacked in geometric intuition, especially in projective aspect.

Could you please suggest me some text book about Projective Geometry(or Geometry in general) with a view toward Algebraic Geometry, or have promising intuition to Algebraic Geometry?

I am sorry if my poor English lead to any misunderstanding.

Thank for reading.

@KannappanSampath: Thank for reminding me about it. I am also sorry because I have not known anything about accept rate before. –  Arsenaler Feb 7 '12 at 3:46
Try Coxeter, Introduction to Geometry, which is a survey text meant for upper-division math majors. –  Ben Crowell Feb 7 '12 at 3:54
Coxeter also wrote a book called Projective Geometry (not the book about the real projective plane) which I think would be a better choice here, than Introduction to Geometry. The second edition of the Projective Geometry book was published by Springer. –  Joseph Malkevitch Feb 7 '12 at 18:49
