Creed and opinion change with time, and their symbols perish; but Literature and its temples are sacred to all creeds and inviolate.
                             Mark Twain
         - Letter to the Millicent [Rogers] Library, 2/22/1894


Thou clay-brained guts, thou knotty-pated fool, thou whoreson obscene greasy tallow-catch!

Advanced Placement Literature and Composition


This course is divided into three major areas concerned with the genres of prose, drama, and poetry.      This class is designed to comply with the curricular requirements as described in the AP English Course Description, and the class prepares students to take the AP Literature and Composition Exam in May.  Students are expected to write creative and analytical paper at an introductory college level. At least three in-class timed writing and multiple draft essays are required each quarter and a full research paper after the AP Exam in May.  Discussion and participation is vital to understanding literature.  I expect students to be prepared by carefully reading the required texts.
