Dorothy Parkers (USA. 1893-1967)

Dorothy Parker  

Here's an interesting writer, probably one of the very first who used the stream-of-consciousness technique (modernist writing). The story, however, is not one of my favorites. I chose it because it's got good language material for English learners! Listen! Listen External Link to the story A Telephone Call at the Talking People Podcast

A Telephone Call worddoc (3 pages) - with notes by michelle
Read the story and also my language notes, which are an example of how to use literature to review some language points and become more fluent and correct while using your English! This story is very useful to review hypothetical language, the language functions "will" has, the modals in general, indirect speech and various verbal phrases. Feel free to comment here and pose your questions on the TP forums.
More about Using Literature to learn English at the TP section How to Learn, especially here.
