My students and some of my friends can t ever figure out why I love this novel so much I explain how the characters are thoroughly original and yet timeless, how the symbolism is rich and tasty, and how the narrative itself is juicy and chock full of complexity, but they just shake their heads at me...

Admittedly, I can be a bit dismissive of the classics By which I mean that many of my reviews resemble a drive by shooting This annoys some people, if measured by the responses I m still getting to my torching of Moby Dick Even though I should expect some blowback, I still get a little defens...
