    The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, published in , is the first fantasy written by an American to enjoy an immediate success upon powerful was its effect on the American imagination, so evocative its use of the forces of nature in its plots, so charming its invitation to children of all ages to look for the element of wonder in the world around them that author L. Frank Baum was.   The 10 best American poems The list could go on and on, but these are the poems that seem to me to have left the deepest mark on US literature – and me Jay Parini.

      When creating your own AP Literature reading list for the student choice free-response, try to pick works that are diverse in author, setting, genre, and theme. This will maximize your ability to comprehensively answer a student choice question about pretty much anything with one of the works you've focused on. So, I might, for example, choose. The full title of this book is “The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave”. This autobiography of Frederick Douglass was printed in and really opened people’s eyes not only because of the intriguing title, but because Douglass’s exceptional prose, poetic fables, and great writing skill showed what a former slave could aspire to.

    Real critical interest is kept for food: the ultimate transitory consumable.

Top American Literature Titles Listed below are the top titles for the American literature classroom, ranked in order of popularity, chosen by American literature teachers from across the country. Good Non-American Authors. For school, I have the summer assignment to read a novel by a non-american author.

Welcome readers, This is our monthly discussion of the literature of the world. Twice a month, we'll post a new country for you to recommend literature from with the caveat that it must have been written by someone from that country (i.e.

Shogun by James Clavell is a great book but wouldn't be included in Japanese literature). I’m reading (and enjoying) my first Inspector Rebus novel, Fleshmarket Alley, by Scottish crime writer Ian Rankin.

Non-American Rebus fans may not recognize the book’s American title, as it goes by the more evocative moniker Fleshmarket Close in the UK.

Why it must be spelled out this way for Americans is anyone’s guess; the context more than clarifies the term’s meaning in the book. The Scarlet Letter was the first important novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne, one of the leading authors of nineteenth-century romanticism in American literature.

Like many of his works, the novel is set in Puritan New England and examines guilt, sin, and evil as inherent human traits.

The main character, Hester Prynne, is condemned to wear a scarlet “A” (for “adultery”) on her chest. The most challenging book on this list is The Seven Pillars of Wisdom because it's epic in length and contains great detail about the Arab rebellion against the Turks.

This list covers 30 examples of fiction and 10 non-fiction books because that's how the cookie crumbles. Literature programs vary by school district and relative reading level, but these titles occur regularly across the country.

Non-fiction writers yield the power to influence their readers with their own interpretation of a real life event and thus often find themselves in the midst of controversies. When Paul R. Ehrlich wrote a book predicting the doom of mankind due to overpopulation in the s he was bitterly criticized though his work became immensely popular.

Consider this list as my personal take on the canon of American children's picture book canon - a compilation of thirty books that are popularly regarded as important and influential in shaping American culture and identity. Keep in mind that these books are for the six and under crowd (kindergarden, preschool and those young at heart like me).

In a historical period of international and global frames of literary investigation, In Their Own Terms is a timely and valuable contribution to cross-cultural forms of dialogue between non-American modes of analysis and US American literary studies.

It is a wide-ranging and provocative look into American literary historiography that engages readers in analytical examinations of US literary Cited by: 2. American writers’ contribution to English literature is incalculable.

The American literary tradition began when some of the early English colonists recounted their adventures in the New World for the benefit of readers in their mother country (see our list of the best English authors). Some of those early writings were quite accomplished.

Whenever possible, American non-fiction writers should be allocated to one or more of the subcategories, but writers who did not specialise in a particular field, or who wrote about a subject area which does not have a subcategory, may be placed directly into this category.

Our goal is to feature practical articles on best classroom practices, including the use of the Internet and other technology.

Articles featuring the use of critical theories in teaching American literature and introducing minor or lost American authors are welcome, as are reviews of new titles that would interest instructors.
