Canons Ancient and Modern: The Texts We Teach.
Benton, Michael
Educational Review, v52 n3 p269-77 Nov 2000
Presents propositions about the literary canon in the British National Curriculum: it betrays sacred origins, it is a social construct, its control reflects political power, it is not inevitable, and neither the unitary nor the pluralistic model is without flaws. A middle ground between centralized prescription and free for all is advocated. (SK)
