2015 AP® English Literature and Composition Free-Response Questions

New Review

It is a cruel world. Scholars create essays about a piece of work that describes what cruelty reveals about a character. A prompt from the 2015 AP® English Literature and Composition Free-Response Questions also contains two other essay questions. One analyzes an excerpt from The Beet Queen. The other question asks writers to look at poetic devices in a poem by Derek Walcott.
