Richard Armour s r sum is formidable a Harvard PhD who held research fellowships in England and France and taught at a slew of institutions including the University of Texas Northwestern University and the University of Frieburg When someone like that writes a book you might be forgiven for imagining it s on an academic subject And so The Classics Reclassified is except that it s the most hilarious the most utterly addictive take on an academic subject you could possibly imagine I ve read a fair number of Armour s books and am a diehard fan of his style of humour but I have had ever since I first read The Classics Reclassified a very soft spot for this particular book This as the name suggests is a book about literary classics with authors ranging from Homer to Shakespeare to Dickens but in a way that s bound to make you see not just these authors but their works too in a different light There are seven authors and seven works covered here Homer The Iliad Shakespeare Julius Caesar Sir Walter Scott Ivanhoe Nathaniel Hawthorne The Scarlet Letter Herman Melville Moby Dick George Eliot Silas Marner and Dickens David Copperfield Each section begins with a brief but informative biography of the writer Homer for instance we learn is said to have been born in seven cities which indicates how his mother kept on the move He is also said to have been born in six centuries apparently after a number of false starts And about George Eliot Armour writes George Eliot had a great deal of trouble with her name and so have librarians ever since most readers however give up after searching for a few hours and read something by say Eliot TS A footnote follows After a few hours with Eliot TS some readers give up reading entirely This deliciously irreverent style is carried forward into Armour s discussion of each work Basically each of these is a synopsis of the work in uestion every bit as pithy as the author bios And with those nutty footnotes included The next day on the plains of Philippi the opposing armies are met from Julius Caesar comes for instance with this footnote By whom it is never divulged There are hilarious asides very uick plot lines and smart little tips Unless you are interested in a catalogue of famous pictures of whales the manufacture of rope lines the anatomy of the whale s eye ear and tail how to skin a whale and cook the blubber and the history of whaling from Perseus to the present you would do well to turn from Chapter XXXVI to Chapter CXXXIII without further delay thus saving nearly a hundred chapters without anybody s knowing the difference if you keep uiet After all Ahab isn t the only one entitled to be a skipper What s amazing is that Armour s research and his knowledge of his subject is so obviously impeccable yet his sense of humour makes this book an absolute gem the sort of book you can go back to again and again I end up reading it at least once a year to the point where I know all the jokes but still find them delightful An absolute must read if you like literature and you like humourPS My edition of this book is illustrated by Campbell Grant and the illustrations are every bit as brilliant as Armour s prose
