What Is English?
Gibson, S. H., Ed.
English Exchange, v12 n3 p7-10, 12-13 Spr 1970
Following the trend of organizing English literature study around "themes" both promotes superficial instruction and neglects a major facet of literature especially appealing to today's youth--that literature is a work of art covering the whole spectrum of man's experience where any of man's feelings, thoughts, and actions may find a place. With the primary appeal of art being emotional, literature study should assess and explore the "felt-thought world" given by the artist; and literary style, theme, character, and action should be interpreted only within the context of this "world."
