There is an increasing demand for the use of literature in English Langauge Teaching (ELT). The main advantage of using literature for language learning is that the representational language of the given literary texts involves the learner culturally, linguistically and historically, and as a result the learner's languge learning becomes a matter of his culture-awareness, and thereby  the difficulty of learning is minimized. The use of authentic literary texts helps the learner understand the usage of language rules, and threby it makes the learner internalise the grammar and structure of the language. The use of good pieces of literature gives the learner an opportunity to come face to face with the real life situations where the language can be used.
