    Sadly, I never got one of the papers myself. It was a kind of social project to promote literacy, but in another state. A few years they also used one of my poems (alongside many others) for a game...

    That brings me to memory, a long ago, I saw a guy reciting to a girl a poem in french. The girl in clouds and all. The thing, it was Baudelaire La Muse Malade...

    I think you are mixing details of his life (which are interesting, it is not because shakespeare didn't exist that we have to pretend Dickens didn't as well, and I think some of the spark that brings...

    I don't see this as a disagreement. Race is relevant (as representant of socio-cultural background), even if we study Dante or Shakespeare, which individual skill is unique, etc. Race may be not the...

    It does not matter much if it is affirmative or not. This is not new, the canon is flexible and will always change and include authors that were left behind (one person, one teacher will never really...

    I think Moby does not appeal to many addults either. But then, how many find physics appealing? Or biology? Or maths? But that prevent us from flat earth....

    And If I recall correctly, Bloom does not have Rosa in his World Canon, which implies Bloom is not familiar with the World and with the Canon.

    A world canon is obviously filled with other cultures and nobody is making anyone not read what they like. As I said, the classroom is not the only place you will have contact with literature. It has...

    This is very strange. It is like a teacher like Pip is the sole responsable for your choices and you can only read what he suggests/demands. There are or should be multiple places that will allow...

    Compass, another word from Latin.

    Sure you should :D

    Notice how the 3 words Kev singled are latin words, Tempest, impediment, bark, and should give us no problem at all. Unlike england, Shakespeare is not an island.

    Alas, I with it was populist. It is just mediocre and outright evil. No populist would censor tv ads because they show "diversity", tell "gay tourists are unwelcome" then offer "if you want to come...

    Tennyson, another dead white man, was quite maligned in the XX century, way more than Swinburne because Tennyson was the main representative of that age, yet, his reading never went to the point he...
