Over the course of December I will be reviewing and analyzing some very rebellious books.
In the final two classes of my literature undergrad, I took another look at Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk, revisited Orwell's 1984, soared through V for Vendetta, the graphic novel, compared all of these to their film adaptations, and took a look at some fringe texts featuring rebellious protagonists. I also got to spend some time with Odysseus, the trickster, so - let's take a look at some of these rebels over the next month!

The fifth of November wasn't the time to rebel. Obama needed our loyalty in November. But December... Now is the time to rebel, to tell the government the direction we want the future to take. Now we are free to to give up unquestioning loyalty and tell the president what we want to see from him, or else.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you'll come along with me. Become a rebel with a cause!
