Abstract

To enable students to master a language better, literature as a teaching tool, plays a very important role. This article offers the author’s insight into the importance of literature in teaching English context. But, for English as foreign language students, engagement as an effective method in literature learning also has its barriers. This paper tries to discover the ways of learning and teaching literature to overcome the barriers of engagement with literature in Chinese EFL context by analyzing a literary work. Students should understand and analyze the linguistic, literary, and cultural abilities of context in learning literature. And the teacher should focus on designing the teaching curriculum and selecting appropriate literary text for the students.
