AP Literature Reading List

A Listmania! list by W. Austin
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "These American novels and plays may be read during the AP Literature course at Floyd Central High School. All books will be available to borrow at school, except the summer reading novel, which may be purchased here or at your local bookseller. During the school year, students may want personal copies, for notes and further study.

This is an ambitious list and may be adjusted, as necessary.

Summer Break: Ellison, INVISIBLE MAN (1953).

Fall Semester: Twain, THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN (1885); Hawthorne, THE SCARLET LETTER (1850); Miller, THE CRUCIBLE (1953); Thoreau, WALDEN (1854); Chopin, THE AWAKENING (1899); Wharton, ETHAN FROME (1911).

Winter Break: Fitzgerald, THE GREAT GATSBY (1925).

Spring Semester: Steinbeck, OF MICE AND MEN (1937); Hemingway, THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA (1952); Vonnegut, SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE (1969); Williams, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE (1947); Kesey, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST (1960); Hansberry, A RAISIN IN THE SUN (1959); Morrison, BELOVED (1987).

I have bought many used books here at amazon.com and have not been disappointed. Buying multiple books from the same seller saves on shipping costs (unintentional onomatopoeia) and helps the environment. Enjoy the books!"
