It's been nearly eighteen years since College English published the point/counter-point between Erika Lindemann and Gary Tate over the place of literature in the composition classroom. The debate has shown no signs of slowing. Scholars continue to weigh in on what Peter Elbow has aptly described as "sites of conflict" between literature and composition. We have seen withering critiques of literary studies, encomiums to literature’s salvific potential, and appeals to reconcile the rhetorical and poetic strands that characterize every act of reading and writing.
