GO.

I've just finished a rather satisfying, 'Anxious readers in the British Museum Reading Room.'

Interesting anti-canonical approach to your literature studies there.

I forget the exact title, but it was essentially "To what extent is The Great Gatsby merely a repeat of the themes in F. Scott Fitzgerald's earlier short stories."

Comparison on one of the easiest analysed books ever (IMO), and a load of particularly short short stories; but also able to talk about so much. I enjoyed it, but then again maybe I'm perverse :P

Aggges ago, for my GCSE, it was something like "Describe a nightmare landscape". Given that I hadn't bothered revising for it, and had spent the night before reading Stephen King, this was epic.

I've not done any subjects that require essay writing since then I have to say, I miss it.

From wiki:

'The Western canon is a term used to denote a canon of books, and, more widely, music and art, that has been the most influential in shaping Western culture. It asserts a compendium of the "greatest works of artistic merit". Such a canon is important to the theory of educational perennialism and the development of "high culture". Although previously held in high regard, it has been the subject of increasing contention through the latter half of the 20th century.'

So, anti-canonical approaches to literature dispute the assumptions the canon makes, and focus on looking at neglected or even discarded texts. I was trying to make a joke by saying it, because obviously magnetic trains is not Dickens. But I failed.

At school, my form tutor used to give us silly essays to complete as punishments. A few I remember are:

"My night in Knotty Ash"
"The sex life of a pig-pong ball"
"The colours of soap"
