ENGL 1302 Readings: Start Here

This guide contains readings from the TCC Library collections and online literature resources to support ENGL 1302 classes. For questions, please contact or your library liaison.

COVID-19 Update

Due to the rapid transition to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, many publishers have opened their online resources. This means that many works that are normally unavailable online may be available now. Faculty members, please contact your campus librarian if you do not see a poem, play, or short story you normally use on this guide. 


The readings listed on this guide were selected by TCC faculty and librarians to support ENGL 1302 classes. They encompass a variety of styles and voices. Some of these readings will require you to log in with an active TCC Blackboard account. If you are a current student and unable to access a reading, please contact us at  

If you are a TCC faculty member who would like to see if access is available to a specific reading not listed on these pages, please contact your campus liaison librarian.
