The Classics According to Ruin'dHens
Let's face it, a good number of people find dealing with the classics tedious, bland, confusing, and sometimes just plain boring. Since we have such a love of the classics in every imaginable form we thought we'd take a refreshing approach to them, colour them up a bit. The classics according to our rather wharped but well-meaning minds. To celebrate them, if you will! Who knows, by the time we're done you may find yourself wanting to read them for the first time or to just revisit them!

May we have mercy on the masters. And may the masters have mercy on us! -- Ah-men

What do bears have to do with literature? Chekhov wrote a play called The Bear.
Bears have been known to be so enchanted by literature that they rarely return their library books. So, let your hair down and go see some bears, the stuffed mohair breed, that is.
