Some people think that students do not study enough modern literature and authors, whereas others do not believe that it is necessary to do.

In my opinion students should read and study more modern authors and literature. First of all, students are living in the modern world and they have to know all the ideas and principles that the modern society is based on. For example, good contemporary authors can see them and perfectly describe them in their books. Secondly, many nowadays authors describe the old classical plots but a little differently thus making it  really interesting to readFor instance, one can see how people have changed throughout different times.

At the same time there are people who say that everything was perfectly described by the classics before. The human nature and desires remain the same and here is no need in reading the contemporary literature.

I cannot agree with the opinion mentioned above for a particular reason. Nothing substantially changed, nevertheless, there are some new inventions like the Internet, telephones, space shots and so on. All these new things have seriously changed our lifestyle and desires as well. 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.
