Although literary texts are accepted as authentic documents and do not have any purpose for language teaching, they are indispensable sources to be used for development of basic language skills. Here the purpose is not just to contribute to teaching basic language skills, but also to contribute to teaching the culture of foreign language and to provide different perspectives to students while teaching.
