Ap Questions
The significance of a title such as
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
is so easy to discover. However, in other works the full significance of the title becomes apparent to the reader only gradually. Choose two works and show how the significance of their respective titles is developed through the authors' use of devices.
1971
In Some work of literature, a character who appears briefly, or does not appear at all, is significant presence. Choose a novel or play of literary merit and write an essay in which you show how such a character functions in the work. You may wish to discuss how the character affects action, theme, or the development of other characters.
