INTRODUCTION

1.1: Background to the Study

Literature-in-English is a subject taught in Nigerian secondary schools for the purpose of promoting literary competence and language development. It exposes students to well-rounded humanistic education, healthy human values and the beauty and potentials of language amongst other benefits. Central to the subject is the critical analysis of how language is purposefully and creatively used in texts in order to create meaning and explore issues or themes (Gill, 2006). The study of Literature-in-English has a lot of benefits. Its values cannot be precisely estimated, it possesses both emotional as well as aesthetic values. It is a very useful tool for education, literacy, instruction, entertainment as well as many other academic and social benefits (Adebanji, 2003; Usoro, 2007). A very useful resource for achieving its numerous benefits is a literary text; a specific kind of text that opens itself to one or more readings. Meanings and ideologies are communicated through literary texts. These texts stimulate the readers‟ imagination and help them develop intellectually (Bettleheim, 1976). This is usually achieved through realistic setting, characterisation, interesting but simple or complex language and style which enable the reader to relate to the text and be stimulated to examine his or her attitudes and find solutions to the problems and conflicts generated in the text. Literature-in-English is an inviting medium, both in content and structure, in which all students can productively develop, analyse, and defend interpretations (Langer, 2000). The study of Literature-in-English encourages students to enter imagined worlds, explore, examine, and reflect on both current and timeless issues, as well as their individuality and humanity. While it is agreed that some subjects contribute to the formation of the whole, the study of Literature-in-English has a unique effectiveness in opening the mind, giving an in depth and better understanding of personal values and the choices of action people make continually. From the fore going, Literature-in-English is the study of an art of expression which concerns itself with not just what is expressed but also with the manner of its expression which is connotative and referential in nature.
