Over the centuries, from the start of the printed word, books have been banned for a plethora of reasons: shocking or grotesque language, anti-social or seditious statements, or for simply going against accepted social and cultural norms. Many of these books went on to become all-time greats, like James Joyce’s Ulysses, George Orwell’s 1984, Lewis Carol’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, to name a few.
