SJ, Control the masses, make money. A high school student who is serious about poetry, or literature in general will get thee to the local public library and discover Yonah Wollach all by their lonesomes, or, if the "teach" wants to recommend some more contemporary stuff, they can offer them "derech agav". Want love poetry? Bialik, Tcernikhovsky, Rachel, even Yehuda HaLevi. That's what ought to be covered, the stuff that they media doesn't ususually discuss. It hasn't been censored. I knew of a literature prof in the States who didn't understand why, in the '60s we were reading Salinger, when we ought to be reading it "on our own", jes' cuz' we like to read what's out there. The joke was that you placed a book on the syllabus after the writer was already part of the canon, or, at least recently gone. Okay, if there is something prurient, then, it can be "suggested reading". Ain't nobody censoring anything. If it's out there, and the kids are curious enough . . .
