The Classics Reclassified In Which Certain Famous Books Are Not So Much Digested As IngestedI recalled having read this appalling piece of garbage yesterday while I was reading a Romola by George Eliot The link comes from the fact that the The Classics Reclassified contains a rather successful parody of Silas Marner of which Armour says that A Witch's Guide To Faery Folk: How to Work With the Elemental World it shows that good people are rewarded for their virtue but that they have to wait a great many years for their rewardI am rathernclined to think that Silas Marner does The Homefront in Civil War Missouri indeed deserve the unsophisticated mauling that Armour dishes outn this book However I must acknowledge that what he was doing was disgraceful As a university literature professor Armour s day job would have been to help his students through the difficult and occasionally badly written sections of our great classics As a sideline he wrote books like this n which he made easy jokes on the problematic aspects of the great books n our Western CanonIf you enjoyed the parodies found n Mad Magazine and the National Lampoon you will probably enjoy this slim efficient volume The specific classics let n for the Armour treatment here are The Iliad Julius Caesar Ivanhoe The Scarlet Letter Moby Dick or The Whale Silas Marner David Copperfield And what Learning in the Cloud is the Armour treatment It s finishing the line Achilles has no choice but to draw his keen blade from his thigh with the footnote A lesser man would have used a scabbard And then setting discussion uestions like this Hesters said to have made her living with her needle Did she give Daniel Webster and Jacksonian Democracy inoculations on the side If not on the siden the arm This book was a very entertaining trip through many of the books students unwillingly read n their English classes Whether I "Loved Or Hated The Original "or hated the original found Armour s retelling of each tale too fun to keep to myself I read whole chapters aloud to my poor unsuspecting daughter She enjoyed them too but don t tell anyone This book will be enjoyed most by folks who are familiar with the original classics Richard Armour s r sum s formidable a Harvard PhD who held research fellowships Bloody Winter in England and France and taught at a slew ofnstitutions ncluding the University of Texas Northwestern University and the University of Frieburg When someone like that writes a book you might be forgiven for magining t s on an academic subject And so The Classics Reclassified s except that t s the most hilarious the most utterly addictive take on an academic subject you could possibly magine I ve read a fair number of Armour s books and am a diehard fan of his style of humour but I have had ever since I first read The Classics Reclassified a very soft spot for this particular book This as the name suggests s a book about literary classics with authors ranging from Homer to Shakespeare to.
