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 

The Politically Incorrect Guide to English and American Literature takes you on a fascinating tour through our great literature—in all its politically incorrect glory—to give you the great literary education you were denied in school.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by John | 12/16/2013

    " Reading this book is equivalent to taking a university English Lit. Survey course from an ultra-conservative professor--if that's even possible these days. It's passionately written, brash, and very insightful. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Andreas Strom | 9/29/2013

    " Boring, dry and WAY too focused on christianity and feminism. I did learn a few things here and there, but it was a chore to struggle through this yawn inducing book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Kelly | 9/5/2011

    " This book is definitely left wing but gives a lot of food for thought about what literature is currently being taught in universities. It is entertaining and educational all at the same time. "You can leave your job, or your hometown, or your marriage, but you always take yourself with you." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jennifer | 4/20/2010

    " I learned that what authors write and what critics believe a text is about are usually conflicting. If you love to read and know as much as you can about famous (historic) authors--this book is for you. "
