Abstract
In Pakistan English is taught as compulsory subject from class six in Urdu medium schools, and from the Play-group in English medium schools. Students, who study in English medium academic institutions, have an edge over those who study in Urdu medium schools. At the college level, they have to deal with English literature, and there is a sharp rise in the standard how have studies through the medium of English at school. Students who have studies through the medium of English at the school level, can handle this change more easily than pupils whose medium of instruction was Urdu. The thesis attempts to present the stylistics method of teaching English literature to the M.A classes in Pakistan as an interesting alternative worth trying.
