And, because everyone teaches and learns a little differently, there are lots of options for working with the literature, including case studies on individual works and themes that everyone can relate to. About the Author: Michael Meyer has taught writing and literature courses for more than thirty years—since at the University of Connecticut and before that at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and the College of William and Mary.
