What PC English professors don’t want you to learn from…

• Chaucer: Chivalry has contributed enormously to women’s happiness
• Shakespeare: Some choices are inherently destructive (it’s just built into the nature of things)
• Milton: Our intellectual freedoms are Christian, not anti-Christian, in origin
• Jane Austen: Most men would be improved if they were more patriarchal than they actually are
• Dickens: Reformers can do more harm than the injustices they set out to reform
• T. S. Eliot: Tradition is necessary to culture
