The Canon, Version 2.0
Written by Bwog Staff
If they haven’t already, Generation ’10 will soon recieve a slick new copy of the Iliad, courtesy of some alumni class from the last fifty years. Unless they decide to buck tradition, its cover will feature a lovely classical painting now hanging in L’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Slate, however, has proposed the alternative shown at right, which Bwog thinks would constitute a vast improvement.
Core reform? Nah—we just need new cover art to make old favorites new again!
