LITERATURE
Literature

Allows us to communicate directly and


transparently with people who live very far
away from us (John Green, How and Why
We Read)
Literature

Language is used to communicate complex


ideas and experiences between people
Literature

Reading is always
an active empathy
Imagining what it
is like to be
someone else
Literature

Literariness among
texts exists so that the
text becomes a bigger
and better world in
your mind
Literature

Books dont exist for


the benefit of the
author, but of the
reader
Reading Critically

Gives a fuller understanding of life other


than your own
Helps you to become more empathetic
Can give you the linguistic tools to share
your own story with more precision

Gives you better tools to explain corporate


profits and broken hearts, and also connects
us to each other. (John Green)
