    Since it’s an English class, why not pick one of these two highly volatile positions and pitch your best:A. Literature from the ‘Western literary canon’ , primarily written by Dead White European Guys, has no relevance in our world now, and should be replaced by works more representative of today’s concerns. [or]B. The Western literary canon is an irreplaceable treasure house of civilization. Omitting these works will result in an underclass of the poorly educated, and will inevitably lead to entire generations of the badly informed–ultimately rendering them unfit to teach, govern or assume positions of responsibility.Loathesome fun, pilgrim…but someone’s got to do it!
