LEARNING GRAMMAR FROM SHAKESPEARE

Basilius Himawan Setyo Wibowo

Abstract


In English language teaching, Literature, which in general is an inseparable aspect of a language,
has been perceived more as a discouraging subject due to the fact that it is regarded more as an art
rather than a unit of communication discourse. This article tries to find steps to teaching Literature
as a means of elevating students‟ mastery of language. Adopting and modifying Carlsen and
Tovatt‟s stages of reading literary works, this article presents a four-step design of presenting a
literary work in a language class. The design is emphasized on exploring and exploiting language
patterns toward better and more accurate understanding of a literary work in its literal level.
