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
