There has been little discussion about the impact of the pandemic era on the use of literature in English language teaching. This article offers an overview of the use literature to teach English in an Indonesian Islamic higher institution within the postpandemic era with the focus on the multimodality of literary texts and sorogan teaching method. This article is underpinned by and is aimed at exploring two arguments. First, the pandemic era has massively encouraged English teachers to utilize technology in their teaching in that the printed version of literary texts should become multimodal. Second, literary texts should be presented as an accessible and engaging language input. Following a qualitative analysis technique, this case study involved 37 students of State Islamic Institute of (IAIN) Metro, Indonesia. The research data were drawn from a questionnaire, the students' comments on the channels, and the students‟ self-generated channels. The findings of the research show that: (1) multimodality in the form of sound, videos, and music should be taken into account when utilizing literary text to teach English in the post-pandemic era, and (2) the literary texts should be appropriately adapted to reduce the language complexity either by using the students‟ national language or by implementing such a teaching method as sorogan which is familiar to Islamic institutional context. Multimodality, familiarity, and simplicity should become the characteristics of the literature used to teach English at Indonesian Islamic universities.

Keywords: literature, materials adaptation, multimodality, post-pandemic era, sorogan.
