The Parental Advisory Classics
Recently it seems like everyone wants to ban books. And while, yes, there are a few books that I wish I hadn't read as a child (because they were boring), most of the books on their lists are ridiculous. ALMOST as ridiculous as the books on my English lit syllabi when I was in college. So that got me wondering: what would 'parents' think of English lit required reading? What advisory labels would they put on the covers to prevent their children from expanding their perspectives and enjoying (or not) the great literary classics? Introducing: the Parental Advisory Classics.
Penguin Classics seems to put out a new round of book covers yearly so perhaps you'll see these at your local Barnes and Noble next year.
