Wednesday Waves

San Francisco Waves 2013

San Francisco Waves 2013

I had originally planned on focusing Wednesdays to be “Words on Trial,” looking at how the courts have clashed with certain words, mostly in banned books and curiosity piqued by films such as Howl, The Chattery Affair and Dead Poets Society. Of the films listed, I’ve seen the first two and will review the third one as time permits.

What books/films/plays/songs come to mind when it comes to words being placed on trial?

    It seems that now it is God’s Word that come up for trial. The Ten Commandments, or the entire contents. Tweeted

    Lady Chatterly’s Lover is the first book that comes to mind. I think your idea is an excellent one. Once you start digging, you may be amazed (shocked, horrified) by what books and films have been banned.

  3. THE Bible… lol… the Di Vinci Code, Diary of Anne Frank, good Lord the list goes on and on…. can’t think of any movies though, except maybe Schindler’s List was once I think, somewhere…. 🙂 good luck!
