You might be surprised/pleased to know that in poor, backwards, 3rd world Mississippi English teachers still have the kids read "Frankenstein", "The Scarlett Letter", "The Crucible", and "Romeo and Juliet". No wonder the east and west coasts look down on us.It is when it applies to a culture such as ours, which grew up in a time when Dracula and Frankenstein were usually on the reading list in high school English class. We also read The Crucible, The Scarlet Letter, the works of Shakespeare...
Methinks those books are no longer part of the curriculum in many schools around the world these days.
