Hello!

I have a few suggestions. They're not all short stories but I hope they're still useful. :)

- Shooting an Elephant: a narrative essay (kind of like a short story) by George Orwell.
- Joe Cinque's Consolation Prize: a non-fiction book by Helen Garner.
- Jasper Jones: novel by Craig Silvey or film version.
- To Kill a Mockingbird: novel by Harper Lee or film version.

Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions about these texts I would be more than happy to help. :)

Hey, Manar.alogaidi!

I studied 'The Crucible' for my HSC this year and it was one of my favourite texts to have ever studied  ;D I think it just depends on what aspect you want to focus most on for human experiences. I have some recommendations below  8)

Short stories
Lamb to the Slaughter (Roald Dahl)- deception, truth vs lies, women in society.
The Tell Tale Heart (Edgar Allan Poe)- deception, reliability, truth vs lies, social outcasts, identity.

Novels
The Handmaid's Tale (Margaret Atwood)- oppression, human rights, social outcasts, women in society, sexuality, identity.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Victor Hugo)- oppression, social outcasts, identity.

I hope they help  ;D darcyynic has some awesome suggestions provided too  :) If you have a specific area you want to focus on, feel free to let us know and we can search for one for you to use ;D
