How does literature shape or reflect society
Transcript of How does literature shape or reflect society
Society will decide how it feels about a piece of work Sometimes the opinion of a piece of work can be positive AND negative. The song ''Beer With Jesus'' has had a shared opinion since it has been released. Some listeners listen to the song and believe it is just about what they would talk about if they could have a casual conversation with Jesus. Others listen to it and say it is hypocritical because it is about drinking and Jesus. Another example of society having a shared opinion on a piece of work is the Twilight series. Many people like the idea of vampires and werewolves, while others don't like the idea of supernatural beings. Entertainment is how literature is spread throughout the world. Literature reflects society's
good and bad values. In the bible, there is a story of two brothers, Cain and Abel. One of the brothers has an extreme jealousy of the other and kills him. This reflects the bad values in society. Literature has the ability to make society realize its mistakes An example of good value in society is in the book The Blind Side. In the book a family takes in a homeless high school student and show him that he can be loved. Literature and society go hand in hand. Society is the building block of literature. Without one, the other is nothing. Thomas Rhett Works cited:
