Literature (dos and don'ts)
Or is it better to write "do's and don'ts"?
In any case, have a look at the following list. The thrust of my argument is that although literature is good to read, discuss, and write about, although great stories, poems, and plays present great language and characters, and plots, and settings, and issues and might, indeed, be timeless, providing invaluable cultural and moral lessons for us all, we do not need to go into literary terms in any depth. Which words on the following list are absolutely necessary for our English-language learners? [Here's another more erudite list:
