Bronte Hello! Great list - good thinking. I've been following it as I watch the series.

One thing I noticed ...

A boy in Mr O'Neill's class was reading The Bell Jar in episode 'The F Word'. After seeing the book, and a girl drawing a coffin, and Brittany crying, Jane and Daria make a few comments about the class being down. A little oblique perhaps, but anyway, up to you! Watch the scene to get what I mean. :)

Yes, I definitely recall that scene, so I added The Bell Jar to the list. Thanks!

ayanami I spotted Rule of the Bone (at least, I'm pretty sure that's what it said) in season 2, episode 11 "See Jane Run".

Also, they discuss The Prince and the Pauper in Mr. O'Neill's class in "Through a Lens Darkly".

Nivy S I made a good reads account just to add this book:
How to Win Friends and Influence People
Jodie reads it in "Gifted".


message 23: by philip (new)

philip In season two episode seven , the new kid, Daria's quasi-love interest Ted Dewitt-Clinton talks about Orpheus in the Underworld by Ovid and mentions a medieval manuscript on swordplay from the 11th-century. No historical manuscript on swordplay dates from that period . The earliest one is Fechtbücher Royal Armouries Ms. I.33, "The tower manuscript" its from 13th Century. it's my belief that this is the one to which Ted refers to during the arcade.
