Revisiting the Classics

Reactions: 
I've been hesitant to post reviews of old books on this blog for three reasons:

  1. As a writer, it's important to track what's in the current market and classics are not in our current market as contemporary work.
  2. Publishers want to see reviews of current books.
  3. We assume everyone already knows about classic books.
The first two statements are real problems, but the third I doubt. It seems like I find a lot of gaps out there among people, especially when it comes to the work of Steinbeck, Dickens, poetry, and short stories, in general.

So, just for fun, I'll be reviewing some classics through the month of February. If there is something in particular you're curious about, drop me a note in the comments. photo credit: simpleinsomnia Beautiful woman wearing a fancy outfit and holding a book via photopin (license)
