How the Mighty Have Fallen

I've got a large stack of Penguin Classics. Even in the age of the eBook, where I have stopped buying mass market paperbacks and trade paperbacks, I'll buy a nice Penguin Classics edition for the art or the commentary and notes and such.

Until now. Has the shark been jumped?

  1. I have always been a big fan of The Smiths, but I am wondering where this one would get shelved at my house. He's more Wilde than Rabelais, and no where near the Ramayana or the three volume 1,001 Nights. He might fit better between two of my Wordsworth Classics, say between Wagner the Werewolf and the massive Varney. That should keep him humble.
