Making Readers

If there’s one thing I love about teaching literature, it’s introducing new books and authors to my students and kindling their enthusiasm for these texts. The latter doesn’t always happen. There will always be people who’ll be bored out of their minds by the texts we discuss in class. And you don’t always get feedback from the students whether they’ve actually enjoyed the texts they had to read.

But once in a while something truly magical happens: once in a while you get a student falling in love with a novel, a poem, or a play from your class.

Let me tell you: it’s a wonderful feeling! 🙂
