really liked it

Graff makes a solid argument for teaching literature through engaging students in the debates, controversies, etc. that make the field of literary studies worth continuing. I particularly value his insight that the way students engage literature can and should mirror the way they interact with the world, at large - i.e., as citizens who face many different viewpoints and deep-seeded beliefs.
