Interesting, when I was at OSU in the fall of '69, all frosh were required to take three quarters of Comp. Lit. (read, discuss, write). My prop.'s name was Bill Zinker. I was like that stoned kid in Animal House staring at his hand imagining the whole universe existing in it. (Makes me smile even now 49 years later.)

Bill had a beard and smoked while he taught and he was good looking. Imagine a dirtier word than swoon and that's what all of those young co-eds did.

Anyway I say "interesting" because many of the books you all have mentioned reading in high school I read at OSU for class; e.g., Catch 22, 1984, Babbit (I liked it), Brave New World, Animal Farm. The Stranger (Huxley, maybe?) was in there somewhere and I liked that. Don Quixote was a spring quarter undertaking. I couldn't believe a book could be that long and I proved it to myself by reading about one third of it.

Some place along the way I read Metamorphasis (sp.?) about the guy who turns into a bug over night. I believe that's when I stopped smoking dope ( or started - I can't recall). Kidding... . We can all be grateful that stories and books by Kafka has allowed us to use the word "Kafkaesque" in futile attempts to sound bright.
