    Question History of teaching english through literature???

    Hello everyone.

    I'm writing a work about "the role of literature in teaching English". I have a problem. I can't find anything about the history of teaching english through literature. I mean what are the beginnings of such methods,were there any problems with them, how did they develop through years etc.
    Could someone recommend me some links or books about it?
    I would be very grateful.
    Thank you
    Bye

    It goes way back - children in England and Scotland were taught to read using the Bible until the end of the 18th century.

    You could try some of these links, but I suspect what you want will only be available in print.

    Although certainly peripheral, try the first chapter of Terry Eagleton's 'Literary Theory: an Introduction.' It's about the teaching of English (literature) as an ideological instrument.
