    Teachers of EFL in Japan are from diverse educational backgrounds but many are not teaching literature. Little research has been conducted on teachers’ beliefs and their approaches to literary texts in the language classroom in Japan. This paper introduces a small-scale study looking at literature teaching in the university context using interview data gathered as part of a university project. Six teachers at the same private university in Japan completed a questionnaire and a short interview discussing their use of poetry with learners of English. Comments from the interview data are categorized into three codes related to teachers' reasons for using poetry in class, i.e., 1) cultural development, 2) language development and 3) personal development. The author concludes by raising questions for teachers in the LiLT SIG and suggests areas for further research.
