Which American (classic?) book should I read for my term paper?

We just got assigned a term paper in EnglishThe assignment is to read a book or play of our choice by an American author and write an essay on itWe are not restricted in our choice of book or author, but it is recommended that the book have ten pieces of literary criticism available for us to use as sourcesSo I'm thinking that a classic would be the way to goSome that I thought I might consider are.Arrowsmith by Sinclair LewisThe Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton WilderThe Red Badge of Courage by Stephen CraneFor Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest HemingwayThe Sun Also Rises by Ernest HemingwayA Farewell to Arms by Ernest HemingwayAbsalom, Absalom by William FaulknerThe Bell Jar by Sylvia PlathDeath of a Salesman by Arthur Miller Has anyone had any experience with these books/authors? If so, what would you recommend? Oh, feel free to recommend me anything else.


Hemingway is a boreI liked Red Badge of CourageI'd also branch out from that genre of literature into something a bit moreadventurousTry Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange LandMany of the ideas in that book started the hippie movement back in the 60s, and has symbolism galoreOne of the best science fiction books ever writtenPeople have done doctoral theses on this book.
