Feel bad about not reading or not enjoying the so-called great books? Don't sweat it, it's not your fault. Did anyone tell you that "Anna Karenina" is a beach read, that Dickens is hilarious, that the "Iliad"'s battle scenes rival Hollywood's for gore, or that Joyce is at his best when he's talking about booze, sex, or organ meats?
Writer and professor Jack Murnighan says it's time to give literature another look, but this time you'll enjoy yourself. With a little help, you'll see just how great the great books are: how they can make you laugh, moisten your eyes, turn you on, and leave you awestruck and deeply moved. "Beowulf on the Beach" is your field guide-erudite, witty, and fun-loving-for helping you read and relish fifty of the biggest (and most skipped) classics of all time. For each book, Murnighan reveals how to get the most out of your reading and provides a crib sheet that includes the Buzz, the Best Line, What's Sexy, and What to Skip.
