  • sally:

    I believe that the “the satanic verse” by salman Rushdie is a very offensive peace of litreature which should be excluded from this list. As Australian, we have to respect all religions and races.
    thank you

  • Adrien:

    it might be an offensive peace of litreature to you but to other people and myself it isn’t. and you shouldn’t bring religion into the litarary world unless its the bible.

    ps. sally stop being a troll

  • Joe:

    We have to respect all opinions and beliefs, even if we dont agree with them.
    If you find that book offensive, just don’t read it.

  • Norris:

    Learn to spell much? good luck in English guys..

  • Sam:

    And Sally, if you are going to leave a reply on a literary website, maybe you should learn how to spell before you try and leave useless comments

  • Jes:

    I agree.. the essence of religion should not be allowed anywhere near the analysis of any literary form, especially when forming critisim. That being said, no opinions should be negated.

  • dgm:

    it’s spelt piece

  • ana:

    Hiiii.. does anyone know if ‘the curious incident of the dog in the night time’ is covered in class at all. The reason im asking is that i was on another site and they were all like ‘this book which is a standard english text’… idk because i haven’t done it in class :/ ahah, so cheers to anyone who knows and replies 🙂

  • anthony:

    Does anyone know of any good short stories to use for Belonging. I read the Hemingway story (on this site list) and I didn’t think I’d be able to use it. The one by Herman Meliville (also on this site list) I didn’t think I’d use either.

  • Fergus:

    Violante in high society is a good short story for belonging, its not terribly long but Proust packs a lot into it. I find that it’s main theme is about how people change themselves to fit into society instead of being themselves and accepting ridicule.
