My Philosophy on Literature
Throughout the year, I’ve learned great things about literature; my mind has reach its full potential in the process of learning the complex and deep meaning within the inscription on a page of a book. I’ve learn the importance of theme; authors and poets have played a big part in my learning experience.
When you read literature you step into the shoes of a novelist, poet, speaker or character which are not your own, soon becoming them and experiencing there life story. Literature has taken me out of reality, making me smile when I'm sad, teaching me lesions that I never thought I would learn and most importantly reaching my emotions strongly to the point where my problems didn't seem as bad anymore. Literature this year was my true escape. One of my favorite types of literature are used to set historical contexts, allowing the reader to learn about history in a personalized, concentrated way. The stories told in works of literature illustrate how it would feel to live through famous historical times, famines, times of prosperity, times of discrimination, times of hope, despair and times of depression. For example "The Bluest Eye" and "The Poisenwood Bible," which show history of the African American culture and the constant struggle in Congo .
Which brings me to the true definition of literature it's self, seen as a body of works, it offers a unique education in itself, representing a wealth of ideas, perpectives, world views, emotional insights and more, all of which enrich the reader's "ideational vocabulary", expanding the range of thoughts and ideas available to the reader.
