AP Reading List – Book-a-Day: She Stoops to Conquer

The comedy, She Stoops to Conquer, by Oliver Goldsmith is our choice for today's #Book-A-Day.Author:  Oliver Goldsmith

Category:  Comedy

Overview: Written in 1773 when social class still divided people, a woman pretends to be of the lower class in order to win her love.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “A girl with a crush and a boy who is so shy he can’t talk to women.  She pretends to be someone else.  The basis of many romantic comedies you’ve seen, this one is sublime.  It never fails to make me laugh out loud.”

Ethan: “She Stoops to Conquer is the type of work that can make the reader laugh and make them question how he or she sees the world around them. In this case, I always come away from the play thinking about the way class impacts my interactions with others.”
