You’ve been enjoying classic literature without even knowing it!
Fashions differ, societies vary, and our technology has advanced, but humans are essentially the same when it comes to stories. We enjoy a good love story. We understand pain and loss. We laugh at blunders. We root for the hero. We wish for a happy ending. Don’t disregard something just because it is “old.”
