I am a high school junior at a public school. I’ve recently been given the opportunity to create my own independent study course with an English teacher during a free period I have this semester. She’s allowing me to determine what I study, read, and write about.
I’ve developed a significant interest in theology and I’d love to weave that into my research somehow. If it were simply a theology class I would want to look at Theology of the Body, Chesterton, St. Augustine, or a similar subject, but because I’m doing this with an English teacher at a public school I’m reluctant to stray too far.
I was thinking about writing about T.S. Eliot or Flannery O’Connor, but I would appreciate any other suggestions of subtly Catholic literary figures;)
