Welcome to the summer reading discussion forums!

To be clear, what we’re looking for here is a specific, intelligent, creative, and witty exchange of ideas.  Combined, specificity (making direct references to the text), intelligence (producing sophisticated ideas), creativity (producing ORIGINAL ideas), and wit (expressing those ideas cleverly) are key to doing well in AP English IV (and as important, enjoying the class).  So here’s your first opportunity: show me what you’ve got!

These threads should evolve into conversations, so be mindful of what people have posted before you.  You’re encouraged to start new discussion threads (rather than just responding to things that I post), or you can reply to some one else’s observations.
