They may think that literary analysis is a mysterious, completely subjective enterprise, and wonder what sort of knowledge they will gain from delving into the granular details of eighteenth-century odes or seventeenth-century soliloquies. Deep analysis of literary works challenges students not only to take apart written works and find out what makes them effective and pleasurable, but also to express their discoveries in prose form. The two enterprises feed off of one another: in taking apart the most well-respected and well-loved works of literature, students learn about different literary elements and devices that they can then appropriate and incorporate into their own writing. AP English Literature and Composition courses survey English literature of a variety of genres and styles from a number of periods. The works selected may be translated from languages other than English, though this is left up to each individual instructor.
