  Written by British authors
 
  Other literature written in English:0-10%

  SAT2英语文学考试内容主要是针对英国和美国文学,故有人称这门科目为英美文学,基本上占比都是各占40%-50%,剩下的部分就是其他英语类文学了,最多占到10%。

  在文章题材方面,主要是诗歌和散文,它们的比例基本上都是各占一半,对于戏剧或者其他类型的话就涉及的比较少了
 
  备考策略
 
  英语文学类科目中考察的知识主要是美国高中阶段中的课程内容,但是由于各个学校所用的教材是不同的,所 以这些题目也不是每个学生都熟悉的。
 
  (1) 在平时的备考中,阅读不同历史时期和类型的英美文学,由于文章时期跨越范围大,从文艺复兴时期到 20 世纪的文学都有涉及,因此在考生不要局限在一个时期的文章。
 
  (2) 阅读完整的小说和戏剧,而非节选章节,考试中的文章是节选的,但是考生如果在平时阅读过完整的内容,就可以全面了解文章的背景信息以及人物的特点等。
 
  (3) 了解学习英美文学中的基本文学术语。
 
  (4) 阅读包括诗歌、散文、戏剧类文章这也是考试所要求的类型。
 
  (5) 刷题。实践出真知。所以考生要以真题为主,熟悉考试类型,这样才不至于在考试时过于惊慌。
