Moral art and education, continued.

Several friends confirm that Catcher in the Rye reaches some English literature lessons in Britain, so consider the record corrected. There’s certainly no blanket ban on ethically deviant literature. But I’ll try to dig up more on this later. It would be nice to find more examples of prominent badass books in British schools. Less of the ethically safe Steinbeck, please, however great he is. Previous post here.
