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.
