Green Wizards Canon on Books
So, it's been a month, and we have a great list of Newberry and Caldicott books. Anybody been thinking about a Green Wizard canon? According to JMG:
A canon, in this sense of the word, is a collection of works by dead people that everyone reads, discusses, and thinks about in the course of their schooling. There are three characteristics of a canon that deserve attention here. First, it’s always changing, as each generation wrestles with the legacies of the past and decides which works by the recently dead should go into the canon, which neglected works by older authors should be added to it, and which existing works in the canon don’t deserve their status and can be dropped with advantage.
"Works by dead people" immediately eliminates a number of titles I had in mind. Nothing says it has to be fiction. Which books should be in the GW Canon.?
