Modern radio ad for a classic

This challenge has ended!

Classic literature. Some of it has the power to move the soul and speak across generations about the gritty realities of the human condition. Some is complete dreck inflicted upon the rest of us by sadistic literature teachers the world over.

Anyway, in a moment of insomnia, I wrote, and wondered what others would say about classic literature they either love or loathe.

Your challenge is to write a modern radio ad, in 1024 characters or less, that expresses how you feel about your chosen work. Make it punchy. Make it snappy. Make it upbeat. Make it funny. Make it sell copy.
