A Geographical Tour of Literary America

The Grand Tour of Literary Landmarks resulted from my students' success with another project that we called "Poetic License with THE AMAZING RACE." This new journey also begins and ends in my students' hometown. Chosen writers are specific to our curriculum and texts; however, teachers can adapt new selections to their students' needs. Side images are their original work. Photo images at each destination go directly to official sites or to the slideshows of my own travel photos. The main sources of written material here are www.Poets.org and Adventures in American Literature, Heritage Edition and Pegasus Edition.

Read his biography so that you will be familiar with him when we read The Great Gatsby.

Read "Bernice Bobs Her Hair," a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald that is "a witty snapshot of the trials of a young debutante and her transformation into a jazzy flapper."
