Literature basically belongs to the nature of teaching. Henceforth, teaching literature has come up to the field of education. Thanks to the work of literature that has colored the educational curriculum so far. Teaching literature can be said as a reflection of learning the world through the literary work. It is seen that teaching literature aims to make students humanized. This also develops the students’ awareness of how literature can function as discourse—, whose text— is also an access to the knowledge of world both in fiction and in reality. This also belongs to the context of teaching the work of art reflected in text. Here, students can share the benefits or the use of literary work—so called—utile, as well as the pleasure—so called—dulce—so that students share or take a good advantage of knowing and being human who sometimes lives in the complicated world. Nonetheless, in teaching literature, teacher and students find it difficult to work on the text served in the curriculum. As a matter of fact, they (teacher and students) also share the complexity of how to appreciate and comprehend the work of literature if the implementation of its national curriculum is still debatable.
