SAT Essay: Literature

Link of the Day

On June 26, 1892, the girl who would become the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature was born.  Pearl S. Buck was a prolific writer and a fascinating woman who divided her time between China and the United States.  She was a champion of civil rights and women's rights, as well as the founder of the first international, interracial adoption agency.  You can read more about Pearl S. Buck's life here, but be sure to consider her novel The Good Earth as you choose literary examples for the SAT essay.  This book is packed full of universal themes that you may see on the SAT (including nature, wealth, values, and the role of women), but it is also an interesting novel that would make a great summer read.
