fun with classics
posted by soe 11:42 am

You may have noticed that periodically my inherent lit geekiness comes through. This is one of those times.

But this fun tool can might help you decide which great classic work of literature to pick up next:

Handicapping the Great 20th Century Novels

Interestingly, the way I ultimately handicapped them all put The Sound and the Fury at the top of the list. I started reading TSatF in grad school, but ultimately ran out time to finish it. But I really liked the part of it I read and meant to get back to it. Now if too many people aren’t reading it for Oprah’s book club (and, thus, using all the library copies), maybe I’ll finally get back to it.
