The AP English Literature and Composition course and exam will cover a wide array of works. The novels, plays, prose passages, and dramas can be difficult to interpret due to the authors' different historical backgrounds. It is important, thus, to expose yourself to a wide variety of authors and genres to prevent any surprises on the AP exam.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I suggest picking a few authors and works from this list to study, as you can possibly  use them for the third essay on the exam! Even if something unconventional pops up, having a large amount of prior knowledge of different authors will enable you to analyze anything!
