Report of the Yale Conference on the Teaching of English (15th, New Haven, April 11-12, 1969).
Yale Univ., New Haven, CT. Graduate School.
The speeches in this collection on English instruction are by (1) Walker Gibson, who discusses the teaching of responsibility to the young by making them responsible for clear writing; (2) Hart D. Leavitt, who describes the ways in which many possible subjects for composition can be seen in the collection of pictures, "Stop, Look, and Write"; (3) Martin Price, who compares a novel to a game, which has self-enclosed rules and structure, and to a model, which imitates a reality beyond itself; (4) David Thorburn, who analyzes John Knowles'"A Separate Peace" and considers the relevance of this novel for teenage readers; (5) A. B. Giamatti, who examines, in Marlowe's "Doctor Faustus," the Renaissance fascination with words; and (6) Howard Felperin, who focuses on the comedy in language and situation in "Henry IV, Part One" to help students enjoy and learn about life from a Shakespearean play.
