Lighting the Flame: Teaching High School Students To Love, Not Loathe, Literature.
Milburn, Michael
English Journal, v91 n2 p90-95 Nov 2001
Discusses how Francine Prose accuses English teachers of assigning simplistic, badly written books that breed incompetent writers and readers who loathe literature. Notes that Prose focuses her contempt upon "To Kill a Mockingbird" and Maya Angelou's "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings." Suggests that students show teachers how to help them love literature; all teachers have to do is listen. (SG)
