High-school + Drugs = Reality

Written, but not to be Read

*Sigh* I don’t write to be read, I write to be heard. I share this trait with my good Friends William Shakespeare and Sophocles. Their work was not to created to numb students while in class, nor was it created to be read by the ignorant so that their plots may be misconstrued by an incompetent audience. Neigh, their work was meant to be performed by a trained cast so that it may be enjoyed to its utmost.

We must remember that taking species outside of their natural environment and forcing them to live in another alters their very DNA, and over time, the species evolves into something completely different. Perhaps that’s what has happened with literature in school; we took a once beautiful swan and made it evolve into a vulture. It’s not the vultures fault that it is now a vile creature, but rather our fault for forcing it to change.

  1. I really liked the writing to be heard, rather than to be read thing that you mentioned. Over all, the whole idea of this post is really nice. I feel like I can relate to that. It would be nice to maybe see you expand this topic and play around with it a little more. I’m actually really intrigued by it.
