Banned Books Week 2013: Classics With Controversy

Banned Books Week continues! Today we bring you classics with controversy:

GULLIVER'S TRAVELS by Jonathan Swift
When Lemuel Gulliver sets off from London on a sea voyage, little does he know the many incredible and unbelievable misadventures awaiting him... 

OLIVER TWIST by Charles Dickens
Who can forget Oliver Twist, the overworked and underfed penniless orphan boy lured into a gang of pint-sized pickpockets?

ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND by Lewis Carroll
Many people remember the animated movie, but Lewis Carroll's masterful fantasy ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND is even more whimsical in print. Like Alice, we'll gladly follow the white rabbit in a coat and gloves down a hole to an imaginary wonderland.

COMMON SENSE AND RELATED WRITINGS by Thomas Paine
Thomas Paine's argument for the people in the original Thirteen Colonies to declare their independence from Great Britain started a revolution. LITERALLY!
