The Politically Incorrect Guide to English And American Literature (Politically Incorrect Guides)

The Politically Incorrect Guide to English and American Literature - Elizabeth Kantor I highly recommend this book. It is fascinating to read what is currently being published by current English professors, and then read the rather straightforward rebuke that Elizabeth Kantor gives them as she quotes original texts back. The original texts seem stimulating and interesting while the modern English revisionist history machinations seems dull and contrived in comparison. This book was worthwhile for me primarily because of her chapter on Jane Austen, which is brilliant, and the chapter on Shakespeare, which is also fantastic.
