'Disrupt Texts' Aims to Scrub Schools of "Violent, Hateful" Classic Literature

1 I read my grandmother's copy of The Odyssey when I was... probably in fourth grade, because I found the cover interesting. I adored the story; it was in E.V. Rieu's prose translation, which made it jump off the pages. I then went on to read William Cullen Bryant's poetry translation of The Iliad, and in what's now called Middle School (either 7th or 8th grade, can't remember which), Rouse's prose translation of that work came in English class. In ninth grade Scott's Ivanhoe was featured. At some point on my own I grabbed Vergil's Aeneid and scarfed it down. Plenty of violence to satisfy a lad. I also read what our small-town library had of the three Greek tragedians, beginning with The Antigone. And need it be said that I read darned nearly everything by Shakespeare I could get my hands on?


Kids should read all of this stuff! Really!

2 I think the first classic I read was Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. I didn't understand a lot of it but enjoyed the story. Been reading classics ever since.

Yesterday I was channel surfing and came across a PBS special on Laura Ingells Wilder. Now I've not read any of her stories (which are aimed at prepubescent girls) but they HAD to get into accusations of racism and bigotry against her, and meentioned how a prize was renamed after complaints by Indians and black people about her wording of things. They couldn't accept that she was a product of her times, and that this was how people thought in those days. And there is a movement now to sanitize the language in her books.

What kind of historical novel is it where history is rewritten so as to make the world seem like it always was a Progressive one?

We are in an era where whole swaths of history are simply rewritten or ignored. It's how you lose a country, by forgetting who you are and where you came from.
