You think you can’t enjoy classic literature.

Overheard a girl say she hated her literature class. She thinks that the stories are outdated and nobody can relate to them anymore.

Imma ‘bout to drop knowledge in here.


Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare

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.”
