World Literature

"The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man's heart.  One must imagine Sisyphus happy."   Albert Camus, "The Myth of Sisyphus"

Though this is World Literature - nearly half of the works that I taught are American.  It's not that I'm chauvinist - at least I hope not - it has more to do with teaching what I love and what is familiar to me - while at the same time exposing students to American works that they normally would read on their own - or from a perspective that is different than what they have done before.  For a long time, it was the only class that I taught every single year that I taught (then came that year of only British Literature), even when I was the Technology Coordinator at my school.

This is my subway poster for World Literature showing some (most) of what we read (maybe not all in the same year, but pretty darn close).  Feel free to copy and/or download a copy.
