“How would a teen-age boy who is going to work with his hands ever use Literature of England in his work?”
The age-old “How am I going to use this in real life?” question. How would you answer it?
This is a question that ive heard many times. I would say that Literature broadens your mind and makes you think about things more, it opens your mind to loads more possibilities. It makes you think that everything is possible.
Literature isnt just about the words. It inspires you. It makes you believe in yourself. It makes you realise that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
That is how you use it in real life. It is not only about picking a book up and reading the words off the page, its more about the momentos that are left behind in your head long after the book is closed.
