SHS ENGLISH DEPARTMENT READING LIST

The works in this list do not constitute an exhaustive or absolute listing of any kind. The list offers our suggestions for some valuable reading.

Two other points should be made briefly. First, because we do want the list to be a helpful guide, we have made specific recommendations for your reading. For example, George Bernard Shaw is not simply named, but some of Shaw’s plays are specifically suggested. This does not mean that these are the only or all the “good” plays by Shaw, but they are good plays and plays good for providing an introduction to Shaw’s work. Our specific recommendations, then, are not intended to be absolute evaluations but reasonable, helpful suggestions for valuable reading.

Also, we have included writers who have only recently come into prominence. We hope that there will be some reading of contemporary works, but not enough time has elapsed at this point to test how really valuable or significant these words are.


NOTE: Students must check with current English teacher for appropriateness of a book for any given assignment.
