"In Literature in Language Education, Geoff Hall provides an overview of current research into how literature has been and is being used in second language education and also outlines areas for relevant research projects in the future. ... Teachers looking for an action research project will find Literature in Language Education, 2nd Edition an invaluable resource; however, even those who are only interested in using literature as part of a second language class will find this book worth a look."
