Literature

Whether you're teaching great modern novels such as Sue Monk Kidd's The Secret Life of Bees or covering classics by Shakespeare, Prestwick House is your source for the literary works taught in the secondary English classroom. Our research indicates that teaching literature consumes 30-40% of the typical English teacher's time and classroom budget, so we've gathered together the most-taught novels, plays, and poems you need at a price you can afford.

Feel free to browse through the following categories, or use our handy search function if you're looking for books and lesson plans for a particular work of literature. We also have our own imprint, the Literary Touchstone Classics line of books, if you're looking for tried and true novels and plays.
