Tired of prostitots? Make 'em read Lolita

This author submits an intriguing argument why, in a world full of teen pregnancy and sexual assault, Nabakov's highly controversial, modern classic Lolita should be a part of the American high school English curriculum.

Among the myriad reasons: Literature offers a safe starting point for discussion and required reading like Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet also deal with teen sex and incest.

Food for thought.
