When You Hate the Classics, But You’re an English Teacher

Hello, my name is Lily and I hate the Classics. Also, I am an English teacher.

First, let me clarify that I don’t actually hate all of the Classics. Just…a lot of them. And secondly, wouldn’t it be more hypocritical if I made my students read books I pretended to love while secretly wishing I could bring the dead author back to life just to tell him (it’s usually a him) how overrated he is?
