This presentation relates to AP English Literature and Composition with a focus on The Restoration and 18th Century literary period (from 1660-1798). The presentation corresponds to Glencoe's British Literature textbook (the green book), but also relies on ancillary materials and the Norton Anthology of English Literature. Links and other information are included in the "Notes" section of each slide.

I used this presentation with my 12th grade AP English Literature students; however, the material is appropriate for any English/British literature course.
Three audio files are included. These files must be linked to the presentation; see the "Notes" section of each slide.
