This site features
dozens of essays critically

have guessed that it would have such a tremendous impact and
draw so much attention to its sociopolitical
themes that the novel would be studied by students as far away as the
United States in an era as distant as the 21st century. Yet

last one hundred or so years have not only made their way into
mainstream literature...but into the forums of higher
education as well.
