best and worst

If I could leave one piece of literature out of Hum 101, it would probably be The Charge of the Light Brigade. I understand why it is necessary to read, but it is so depressing. I also did not love the Invisible man. I think that it was lacking as monster story. There was no action, and nothing very scary. It does show how Victorians secluded the different, and that shows a cultural element, however. There are a few stories that we read that I really liked, Goblin market being one of them, and I really liked Rikki Tikki Tavi. The Goblin market really showed the expectations of women in that day. Rikki Tikki Tavi displayed propaganda and imperialism. There were also both very easy reads. There wasn’t deeper meanings to things that were hard to figure out. There was deeper meanings, but you could understand what they were hinting at. I did not feel as though I was being left out of a joke, like I do when I read something where the analogies are not clear.
