A.P. English 12
Summer Reading
Below are a list of titles from which you can choose. All of them are taken from the lists of titles on
A.P. English Literature Free-Response questions over the past thirty years.
Over the next week, please do a little research and determine which SIX (6) of these plays or novels you
would find tolerable to read. (Ask smart people you know, check out Wikipedia, read SparkNotes . . .)
Email me ([email protected]) with your list of 6 by Monday, June 9.
I do not want everyone reading the same thing for this assignment, so I will sort out all of the requests
and let you know which ONE you are to read.
DO NOT begin reading one of these until I tell you which one.
