High school vs college blends a little bit in my memory, but here's what I remember for sure from high school:

1984
Animal Farm
Lord of the Flies
To Kill a Mockingbird
Wuthering Heights
Othello
Romeo and Juliet
Julius Caesar
Pygmalion


I detested Wuthering Heights. Lord of the Flies was the most disturbing of the lot. 1984 stuck with me thematically. To Kill a Mockingbird was my favorite, and I do re-read it regularly. Romeo and Juliet always made me kinda roll my eyes, as it just seemed so pointless - not the play, the way everything went down.

I feel like there are more. I was a long time fan of Mark Twain, so I've read a lot of his work on my own and most likley wouldn't be able to differentiate between what I read on my own and what I read for school. I'm sure there was at least one more Shakespeare, just can't remember if I read Hamlet in high school or college.

I got sent to the office for arguing with the teacher again.

That English teacher really got around! She was also unhappy that I preferred the works of Gerald Durrell to those of Lawrence Durrell.

The most fun though was in chemistry when I got sent to the office for correcting the questions on an exam.

I did English Literature at 'O' level (to age 16), but the only book I can remember having to study is Lord of the Flies by William Golding.

I must have done a Shakespeare, but I have no memory of what it was.

And we must have done some poetry, but again, I have no memory of it.

"Almost all 1980 syllabuses required candidates to study a minimum of three texts, one in each of the three major literary genres: prose, poetry and drama"

I think we did the minimum! Unsurprisingly, I got a 'C' in Eng. Lit.
