I feel kind of bad I was not assigned many of these books in school (or maybe not, because now my views aren’t tinted by assignments) We did read Beowulf and Metamorphosis. For some classes, we were allowed to pick from a list from the same authors, so I read The Inheritors instead of Lord of the Flies. I read Catcher in the Rye on my own in high school but was not allowed to mention it in class because my teacher told me he ‘hated it’ so I wrote a paper on it and actually got an A. I read As I Lay Dying (could not stand) and Brave New World (loved) on my own shortly after high school.
