Pocket's 10 Controversial Classic Books That Have Been Banned

"Why oh why are people always trying to ban and/or burn books? Don't they know that attempting to censor a novel only makes us all want to read it more? Don't they realize that the effort to suppress invariably helps usher in the opposite result: literary immortality. History has taught us that the harder the Powers That Be rail against a book, the more popular said book becomes. It is likely that someone, somewhere within these United States is, at this very moment, either burning or preparing to burn a pile of books which they have found to be offensive to their puritanical sensibilities. It's important, every once in a while, to remember the then-controversial works of literature that were once cast into the cleansing fire of censorship and managed to make it out the other side, not merely unscathed, but stronger for the attempt. We're taking a look back at some classic reviews of ten of the last century's most targeted novels. Enjoy the filth and perversion." - getpocket.com
