6 Books Everyone (Including Your English Teacher) Got Wrong

Found this over at Cracked.com. It's interesting to read how many classic books continue to be misinterpreted, such as "Alice in Wonderland" (not a drug trip, it's actually about algebra), "The Jungle" (not about bad meat, it's actually a call for socialism), "Fahrenheit 451" (not about censorship, it's about the threat of TV).

I wouldn't trust "cracked." I'm not too familiar with some of the cited works, but the "Alice in Wonderland" interpretation strikes me as weird, and about THE PRINCE, they are wrong. THE PRINCE is exactly what it promises to be: practical advice on how to stay in power and not get assassinated.
