I've been tagged!
Once almost a month ago (where does the time go?!) by Kathleen for the Classics meme, and once a few hours ago by Reviewer X for one of those "get to know you" memes.
What is the best classic you were “forced” to read in school (and why)? I had a unit on Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness” both in high school and college. Since then, I’ve read it at least a dozen more times.
What was the worst classic you were forced to endure (and why)? I had a class where we had to read “Hard Times” by Charles Dickens. I had really hard times reading it because it would put me to sleep – I could only read a couple of pages at a time. But I did finish, and I did think it was excellent – once I was done.
Which classic should every student be required to read (and why)? “The Awakening” by Kate Chopin. I mean it’s a must read for the female gender anyway, but if men would read it too, maybe they’d understand women better.
Which classic should be put to rest immediately (and why)? I can’t think of any. Classics are classics for a reason.
