Well, no. That title probably goes to this…
However, it is possibly the worst cover of a classic novel ever published.
(Wait, are you saying Henry James’ 1891 novel The Turn of the Screw isn’t actually about screws?!)
No. It’s not about screws.
We’ll let you be the judge: here are quite possibly the worst covers for classics ever.

Recently, we received feedback from an eNotes customer to let us know that teachers needed an easier way to find the resources they were looking for on the site – items such as lesson plans, response journals, and quizzes in the given titles they teach. So, we listened! eNotes’ study guides now contain an area devoted just to teachers, meaning it’s easier than ever to find exactly what you’re looking for to help you teach smarter.
An English teacher covering To Kill a Mockingbird, for example, can now find lesson plans and a variety of quizzes listed in one place.
This gives quick and easy access to two kinds of lesson plans: eNotes’ original documents, which include our own lesson plans and extensive response journals, and lesson plans available from other publishers in eNotes’ document store, many of which are free.
Download unlimited lesson plans for one discounted rate
eNotes’ lesson plans are expert, teacher-created resources that can be purchased individually or downloaded for free by subscribers to the eNotes Teacher’s Edition all-access pass. And now you can grab that special edition pass with a great discount!
Mere hours ago the world got its first look at the latest feature film to be adapted from Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Macbeth. And oh what a first look it was…
That’s right, peel your eyes away from that murderous gaze and you’ll find that it belongs to none other than the current Hollywood darling Michael Fassbender. Chills… I have chills! I know what you’re thinking: he seems to be saying,
I am in blood
Stepp’d in so far that, should I wade no more,
Returning were as tedious as go o’er
Right? (By the way, you can find the explanation for that quote here.)
And if Fassbender gives you goosebumps in this poster, just wait til you find out who’s playing Lady M…
Most readers would agree that adapted films are almost never as good as the books that inspire them. But with David Fincher casting his creepy spell over Gillian Flynn’s breakaway thriller, it looks like Gone Girl might just defy the odds.
Check it out below:
The cast includes Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, Rosamund Pike as his missing wife Amy, Tyler Perry as the lawyer Tanner Bolt, and Neil Patrick Harris as the waspy Desi Collings. The movie is directed by David Fincher, of “The Social Network,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” and “House of Cards” fame. (He’s also directed some Nine Inch Nails music videos, and if that’s not a pedigree for eerie film making, I don’t know what is.)

“I dreamt up Project Sina in college and always thought that I would pursue the endeavor later on in my career. I guess there is a perception that one has to be of a certain age and have collected a number of accolades before doing something entrepreneurial… Frustrated by a narrow job market, I was compelled to create my own opportunities regardless of who or what entity deemed me qualified.” — Amena Mian
In our new blog series, we’re interviewing students and recent graduates who have taken their studies and done something profound with them. Some are doing great work at home, while others have traveled to far off destinations to help communities in need. Whatever path they’ve chosen, these inspirational Students of Change prove that being young and recently graduated are never hindrances to doing what you want to do.
Amena Mian is a graduate of UC Davis, with a degree in Global Community Development. She has an extensive amount of experience working for mission-driven nonprofits both in the US and South Asia and she was selected as a Fellow for the IDEX Fellowship in Social Enterpise ’12-’13. Her non-profit fashion label Project Sina is “generating opportunity for women through a stitch,” employing Pakistani artisans to create beautiful, hand-crafted clothing and repaying them with fair wages and education.
Amena’s efforts to promote literacy and equality for South Asian women make her our hero and this week’s Student of Change. Read on to learn more about her and her co-founders’ noble cause!
