What would classic novels be called if they were written for today’s market?

Then: The Gospel of Matthew
Now:  40 Days and a

I’ve just finished Dante’s Descent into Dummy Loan Felonies —With a Detour for Minimum
Security Prison
— and Amazing Redemption as an
Ethical Financial Advisor in preparation for the video game version. I don’t remember the poet being so badass.
