Description:Many of us read books, but why do people take the time in university to study them? What, in other words, is valuable about thinking, talking, and writing about literature? Literature provides us with a way of thinking about every aspect of human existence. Sometimes it reflects and reinforces the ideas of the time in which it was produced, and sometimes it challenges those ideas and contributes to changing them.
