A quote just for Classics Revisited fans...

...from Andrea Barrett. Turns out she's one of us!

"Every year I try to read five or six books that I know I should have read in my twenties. There's some pleasure in reading those now, at this late date. They're fresh for me, and the experience can be dazzling. It's an amazing pleasure, it turns out, to read Paradise Lost for the first time at age thirty-eight."

"The Famous Robert Frost Poem We've Read Wrong Forever" is a review of David Orr's new book "The Road Not Taken."
