Anyway, what’s interesting about this article is that Mr. Shakespeare *does* appear on the list for a change. Before looking, anybody want to guess?
Because you’ll never guess. I never would have. I still don’t understand why they picked the one they did.
(True story, I read The Old Man and the Sea when I was in second grade. I was in the hospital for a period of time, and a well-meaning aunt knew I liked to read. So she brought me some books. One of them happened to be Hemingway. <shrug> Not claiming I understood it, just that I read it. Guy goes fishing, and it takes him so long and out so far to get the actual fish that by the time he gets home all the other fish have eaten it, right? Something like that. ;))
