“In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.” -Douglas Adams
There has to be a beginning to every piece of literature. In the same fashion we must begin somewhere too. This is going to be the start of a beautiful relationship between readers and readers. We’ll do our best to provide quality information regarding the most important works of literature ever created, as well as some duds that have made their way into the mix. But expect to see some in-depth analysis, tasty quotable bits, and incoherent ramblings along the path through the canon of literature.
We read because reading is enriching, it is the documentation of life, actions, and aspirations throughout time. It is our goal to give you a reason to read if you don’t have one, and to help guide you to the best works of all time if you do. At The Canon Revised, we’ve read hundreds of books, and continue to immerse ourselves in literature because we can’t help ourselves. We hope you feel the same.
Throughout our journey through the canon of literature, we’ll find great quotes, bothersome plot holes, tedious syntax, but also many priceless pieces of textualized artistry. It should be an enjoyable ride for us all. If not, then at least we’ve read some books, and that ain’t bad.
In the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams reminds us “Don’t Panic and Carry a Towel.” I would advise the same. Towels are relatively important for personal hygiene. But don’t panic! Pick up a book, write to us about how great it is, and we will do the same for you.
Welcome, friends, and happy reading.
