Everyone can appreciate a nice play on words, but what really sets this series by Timothy Taranto apart is the accompanying images. Oftentimes as literature is being taught in the classroom, it takes on a very serious note of respect for the great authors being studied. What this picture series does is breathe a bit of life and silliness into the discussion concerning some of the incredible writers whose work we read. Perhaps I am wrong, but I have the feeling that if some of these authors could see this work, they too would get quite a chuckle out of it.
