Bartleby the Scrivener: A Story of Wall Streetby Herman Melville The Brothers Karamazovby Fyodor Dostoevsky Pride and Prejudiceby Jane Austen
The theme ofREFUSAL is crucial to our current world. Rather than a naïve rebellious act of a youth who refuses to grow up, refusal is a deeply ethical act, a renunciation of that which nauseates and insults. The selections in this collection demonstrate this deep refusal. Many of us are in a position to refuse, but lack the wherewithal or insight to know where and how to refuse. This bundle can point us in that direction.
