Snakes in high school english

I've googled around various things (snake classics, snake symbolism, serpent books, etc.) but I can't find what I need and apparently my memory of high school English is not as good as I'd hoped.

Does anyone know a book (or poem or short story) that might be taught in a fairly generic American, modern day high school English class in which, at some point, snakes are used to symbolize evil? If I have to, I'll go with the Bible, but honestly that has a lot more cultural baggage than I'd prefer using.
