Mr. Van Dyk's English 10

The search for truth has been the focus of almost every significant literary work ever written. All through human history, people have searched for that which is true in an attempt to stave off the harmful effects of lies. There is a good reason God made it one of his ten commandments and describes the devil as “the father of lies.” One of the greatest lies ever perpetrated on society involves racial and religious intolerance. We will get a chance to see the impact of truth, lies and racism through much of the literature we will study this semester.
