English Language Teaching and Learning through Literature: A Critical Assessment

Prabhakar Vadlamudi

Literature is the media of teaching and learning authentic language. The language of literature is well-organized and wonderful choice of diction. Language generally represents literature. The recent historical positions regarding the use of literature in English language teaching, and the inclusion of literary texts may foster the development of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and critical thinking skills. This is the reason why, this paper argues for the use of literature for language teaching purposes. More important, it claims consistently that the use of literature for language teaching purposes can promote literary understanding and general linguistic awareness among teachers and learners.
