Re: New classic literature?
My nephew was telling me about The Giver, by Lois Lowry, which was assigned to him in school a couple of years ago. It was published in 1993 but it's already part of the district's junior-high reading list. I imagine it will also be picked up by other districts.
The Giver was a part of my reading curriculum when I was in middle school, around 1997. So, it became a "classic" fairly quickly! But I can understand why. It was definitely one of my favorite books we read in school. I liked it so much I went out and bought my own copy.
Time present and time past
are both perhaps present in time future.
And time future contained in time past.
