AP Literature and Composition

  1. Read How to Read Literature like a Professor by Thomas Foster (click the title to open the Amazon listing.)51cbdlphagl._sx330_bo1204203200_
  2. After reading the novel, choose a chapter of the text to apply to your reading of the short stories listed below.  While reading, think about how you can apply the concepts that Foster illustrates in the text to your analysis.  For instance, based on my reading of the chapter “Is that a Symbol?” how can I analyze “A Rose for Emily” for symbolic relevance?  After you have read the short stories, you will write a 2-3 paragraph analysis of each short story applying the information from Foster’s book.  You must use 5 different chapters from the novel (not just the same one over again).
