AP LITERATURE AND COMPOSITION




Rationale: The King James Bible is an integral part of the Western literary canon. Nearly all novels, plays, and poems read in AP Literature will contain multiple biblical allusions—authors rely on your knowledge of the Bible in order to further your understanding of their messages. In addition, the AP test frequently expects students to glean common biblical allusions in the prose and poetry excerpts provided both on the multiple choice portion of the exam and on the essays.
