FS: Should Fiction Be Censored?

We will examine the reasons why governments, parents, and religious groups have wanted to suppress or censor works of literature, especially novels, plays, and films. We will also examine the arguments of those who believe that the censorship of fiction does more harm than good. We will read three novels that have been censored and discuss the reasons why they were considered offensive or dangerous. Finally, we will review and assess the history of literary censorship in Singapore.
