These days, English professors prefer to teach anything and everything but classic English literature. They indoctrinate their students in Marxism and radical feminism, show them Michael Moore’s movie Fahrenheit 9/11, and teach them the “post-colonial literature” of South Asia. When they do teach a genuine work of English or American literature, they use it to propagandize against our “oppressive” Western culture.

What PC English professors don’t want you to learn from:

–Beowulf: If we don’t admire heroes, there’s something wrong with us

–Chaucer: Chivalry has contributed enormously to women’s happiness

–Shakespeare: Some choices are inherently destructive—it’s just built into the nature of things

–Milton: Our intellectual freedoms are Christian, not anti-Christian, in origin

–Jane Austen: Most men would be improved if they were more patriarchal than they actually are

–Dickens: Reformers can do more harm than the injustices they set out to reform

–T. S. Eliot: Tradition is necessary to culture

–Flannery O’Connor: Even modern American liberals aren’t immune to original sin

The Politically Incorrect Guide to English and American Literature takes you on a fascinating tour through our great literature—in all its politically incorrect glory—to give you the great literary education you were denied in school.
