I decided to junk the whole honors program and be an ordinary English major. I went to look up the requirements of an ordinary English major at my college.

There were a lot of requirements, and I didn’t have half of them. One of the requirements was a course in the eighteenth century. I hated the very idea of the eighteenth century, with all those smug men writing tight little couplets and being so dead keen on reason.

—Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
