ABSTRACT
The author argues that the study of literature in the U.S. must be taught hand in hand with the study of the English language from the very beginning. The tendency to postpone the teaching of literature is a mistake that is the cause of problems in later years. When learning classic literature, the child unconsciously absorbs the phrase, expression, style and learns to speak pure English. More emphasis is even needed for high schools, which prepare the student for the college course. The pupil should be allowed to absorb culture from every source and give his taste and judgment a chance to mature unconsciously.
