The Power of Literature

            Literature can create a large impact by expressing ideas and truths into society. Because of the fast-paced world we live in today, many people don't have time to sit and read for large amounts of time, so that's where the media fits in. There are always books and plays being made into movies, and a lot of them deal with important issues and events. "Oleanna," for example, deals with the issue of sexual harassment and the relationships between the professors and their students, and men and women. It's also about power; who holds it and who has the ability to take it away. "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is another play which has many different movie versions to it, but deals with a more lighter and sometimes comical issue of love. People who have read or seen "A Midsummer Night's Dream" are able to relate to the characters or situations with their own experiences, which is an example of how literature can leave impressions on people. Historical events are another subject which literature has focused on. You can find numerous films on the Vietnam War, and although "The Things They Carried" was never made into a movie, it describes a lot of dramatic stories and events which took place during and after the war. Reading about these historical happenings can give more knowledge to people who don't know much about the topic. Literature can be found is so many different forms and on every subject imaginable, which is why literature is such a good source for the public in order to achieve more awareness.
