EDUCATION & LITERATURE: Using One Within the Other

One of the best articles I’ve read recently on learning and literature, from The Chronicle, “Against Readings”:

Everyone who teaches literature has probably had at least one such
golden moment. I mean the moment where, reading casually or reading
intently, being lazy or being responsive, one is shocked into
recognition. “Yes,” one says, “that’s the way it really is.” Then
often, a rather antinomian utterance comes: “They say it’s not so, but
I know it is. I always have.”
