Comment on the following statement:
| At school students do not study enough modern authors and modern literature. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that students don’t study enough modern literature and authors whereas others don’t think that it’s necessary to do.
I think students should read and study more modern authors and literature. First of all, we are living in the modern world and we have to know all the ideas and principles that our society is based on. Good modern authors can see them and perfectly describe in their books. Second, a lot of modern authors describe the old classical plots but a little bit differently and it is really interesting to read. One can see how people change throughout the time.
At the same time there’re people who say that everything was perfectly described by the classics. The human nature remains the same. There is no need to read the contemporary literature.
In my opinion these people have a point, nothing really changes a lot. Nevertheless, there are some new inventions like the Internet, telephones, space shots etc. that has seriously changed our lifestyle and desires. So not everything remains the same.
In conclusion, I'd like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support studying contemporary literature against those that say classic literature is enough, we'll see the facts that support modern literature and authors seriously outweigh those against.
