Are “The Classics” Still Important, or Simply Outdated?
It’s likely you read at least one “classic novel” if not more during your time as a high school student. At 16 years old, it is also likely you found some if not all of them to be boring and difficult to understand. Students often read famous works like Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet or The Great Gatsby. Some argue that these stories show how the English language has evolved or tell important lessons we can’t find anywhere else. However, what’s really so priceless about a 13-year-old girl being manipulated into a suicide pact with a man 4 years her senior? Or a man who is so delusional and obsessed with a woman he’s never met that he throws extravagant parties each night in hopes she will attend? More importantly, could it be found in a book that would keep the attention of students better?
Books That Will Make You Love Reading
If you aren’t a fan of reading, it could be because you have never picked up the right book.
Reading classic literature is the best decision you can make
The term “classic literature” refers to books that have remained worthy despite the length of time that has passed since their release. More than a century after their publication, books like Wuthering Heights, The Catcher and the Rye, and many others are still considered must-reads. Readers are enthralled by classic fiction because they can identify with the very human events and lessons presented in this kind of literature, even when years beyond years have passed since publication. Not only that, but classic literature has the ability to improve our personalities and ways of thinking.
