My Literary Canon

To me, my personal canon of literature has to have certain qualities to it that make it timeless. I do not like to read time pieces or popular books that flare up and down quickly in popularity. I want books that deal with larger life issues within my own literary canon and what I would teach. I will list some of my personal favorite books that are considered literary in no particular order:

Pride and Prejudice

Jane Eyre

The Great Gatsby

Dracula

Don Quixote

Lord of the Flies

Fahrenheit 451

Crime and Punishment

Inherit the Wind

Death be not Proud

The Metamorphosis

Each of these books are extremely literary but most can be read by high school students. I do not think I would expect too much of them to read at least some of these books. In my mind, these books can be used in any paper and compare to almost any situation and topic. It becomes a ground to which students can feel comfortable reaching to other texts and other themes.
