Summary/Abstract: This paper explores the issue of teaching foreign literature – especially poetry – during the foreign language classes. Indeed teaching of literature/poetry as a part of a foreign language education remains a vehemently debated issue. Which and whose poetry should be taught? How should it be taught? What role should the learners’ culture play in the acquisition of knowledge of the French-language poetry? How can the French language teachers learn the skill of incorporating poetry into their teaching of French as a foreign language? And how can they develop the learners both linguistic and cultural competence? Those questions are to be answered in the paper.
