For the AP Exam, I think I'm going to prepare my independent study book, Catch-22, Oedipus, and Beloved. I'm choosing Catch-22 because it's so fresh in my mind, plus I've just written a 10+ page essay on it, and not to mention I really liked it, so it's easier for me to recall. I chose Oedipus because it deals a lot with self-punishment and mistakes that affect ones life and physical state. I then chose Beloved because of how many different themes and messages I can take from it from Sethe killing her children, to the significance of the 124, and to Paul D and his past. There's so many different angles form which I could answer an essay with the book.
