Offers a wide variety of interesting and practical ideas for using literature in the language classroom. Designed specifically with the needs of the foreign language learner in mind: not a book about how to study literature, but on how to use it for language practice. No previous knowledge of literature is needed either by the teacher or by the students. A substantial number of new activities. Main sections increased from four to seven. Favourite older activities have new sample texts.
