Abstract

Domestic violence is a reality that haunts many women and children. How does an educator bring awareness of this problem into the literature classroom? How does one combine the technique of teaching critical analysis with attentiveness to a problem which is real and persistent? In this paper, we discuss the ways in which we blend the training of critical reading of literary works simultaneously with attention to the issue of domestic violence. By connecting textual materials with the private and public domains, students explore how texts are negotiated, interpreted and given meaning.
