And how are you going to convince me that you're not anti-American?
English A1 is the only subject in the IB where I don't have to revise everything I've learned since last year, and instead, only have to focus on the last 4 books. What happens is, the IBO has a list of books, with some certain conditions, some themes, and my teacher is the one to choose them.
The 4 books are:
- "Things Fall Apart" by Chinua Achebe, about imperialism, and the clash between colonialists and native people
- "The Color Purple" by Alice Walker, about racism in America
- "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald, about materialism and the shallow, pointless, hypocritical life in America and the negative side of the American dream
- "The Quiet American" by Graham Greene, against the Vietnam war, against American imperialism
Isn't that a bit blatant?
