The author of this monograph is of the opinion that there are three areas that need to be taken into account in the field of literature didactics as well as in literary education in schools, and which have to be kept in balance so that neither the field nor the school subject lose their aesthetic or rather their aesthetic-educational focus: 1. reading (reading of literary texts and reflection on them), 2. creation (construction and reconstruction of texts and reflection on them), 3. study (discovering the contexts relevant for interpretation of the text, maintaining cultural continuity and cultural identity).
