In recent years, the role of literature as a basic component and source of authentic texts of the language curriculum has been gaining importance. Among language educators and ELT experts, there has been a hot debate and discussion on how and when literature should be incorporated in ESL / EFL curriculum. There are discussions of how literature and ESL / EFL instruction can work together and interact for the benefit of the students and how language can be taught through literature. This discussion leads to the development of interesting ideas, methods and techniques of ELT through literature. Many language educators consider the use of literature in language teaching as an interesting and useful concern.
