Recommended Reading

Now that school is officially over, I’ve compiled a list of texts I enjoyed reading for my English classes this term. If you feel bored at any point over the summer, I encourage taking one of these up:

  • “Elegy in a Country Churchyard” by Thomas Gray (poem)
  • A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf (essay)
  • “Little Red-Cap” by Carol Ann Duffy (poem)
  • Arcadia by Tom Stoppard (play)
  • A Short History of Indians in Canada by Thomas King (collection of short stories)
  • “Vancouver Lights” by Earle Birney (poem)
  • “El Greco: Espolio” by Earle Birney (poem — based on painting of that same name by El Greco)
  • “To a Sad Daughter” by Michael Ondaatje (poem)
  • “Bearhug” by Michael Ondaatje (poem)
  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith (novel)
