This week on the bookish internet

  1. Regarding the first item. Do the works of men implicated in the ME TOO movement belong in the classroom?Firstly “implicated” does not automatically mean guilty. So it depends on whether you feel qualified to be judge, jury and executioner or not. My own thoughts are that the work should be examined on its own merit, not stand trial alongside its creator. Otherwise where do you draw the line. Many of these accusations are historical and extremely difficult to both prove or defend. If you start removing the works from schools and /or libraries there are also censorship and freedom of speech issues. Its a very big, messy can of worms.
