Generating Literary Appreciation (Among High School and College Students). Report 1.
Roeming, Robert F., Ed.
The seminar summarized in this report was held at the University of Wisconsin (Milwaukee) in July 1970 as part of the summer program of the Center for Twentieth Century Studies. Moderator for the seminar, for which the general topic was the appreciation of literature as one of the arts, was Robert F. Roeming, director of the Center. Each of the four participants presented a different approach to the discussion: Herbert Kubly discussed ways in which the aspects of creativity can contribute to literature appreciation; Haskell M. Block stressed the importance of actively relating literature to the student's experience; Julius Weinberg dealt with the relevance of the study of literature; and Leslie F. Cross commented on maintaining a clientele for contemporary authors. A question and answer session, with remarks from the audience, conclude the report. (JM)
