The club blog is hosting a monthly meme as well, and this months question is:
What is your favorite classic book? Why?
Well, I have lots of favorites, and like everyone, I would be pressed to choose just one. However, I think I am going to give credit to my blog's namesake today and talk about why I love:
|Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter|
I didn't love The Scarlet Letter the first time I read it when I was in high school. I wasn't ready.
I started to love it when I read it for my American Literature survey class in college.
I fell in deep when I was in graduate school. I read it at least twice, once with students.
This is why I love it:
1. Despite what anyone tells me, I know that the A represents more than one thing:)
2. "The Custom House" introduction is incredibly amazing, and a totally boring.
3. Hester is FIERCE.
What is your favorite classic book, and what are the top three reasons to love it?
