University literature

Type: Preset list created by ahef1963

Description: I completed a 4-year B.A. in English, a 2-year M.A. in English, and have 5 years of high school English (at the time, high school students applying to university had to attend high school for 5 years). I thought it would be interesting to see what that reading list looked like. I have also included literature from drama courses, and from a French class.
