    When I did my PS, all my Lit teachers told me do not refer to the texts you studied as those are mandatory in school. You should only refer to texts in your PS that you have read outside of your academic study. It shows unis that you actually enjoy reading a wide range of literature in your own time, out of choice.

    Maybe add one or two "Classic" authors too rather than too many contemporary authors.
