100-Word Fiction: ‘The Classics’

“Classics (encompassing editions available in other commercial imprints) is the branch of publishing comprising work in the languages, literature, philosophy, history, art and archaeology of the Western canon, especially as dictated by the marketing wonks of _____ PLC. Works considered for classics status originally included only those in translation, especially works from Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome during Classical Antiquity (ca. 600 BC – AD600). Recently, in a sales drive, the imprint incorporated English and 20th century works. The hope of the PLC is that the study of its Classics imprint will form the basis for all study of the humanities.”
