Thereis no denying that people can get a lot benefits from reading classics. On theone hand, it is a good way for readers to broaden their horizon and increasetheir knowledge in many aspects. For instance, they can learn the societycharacters by reading classic literature novels about history or culture. Onthe other hand, it also provides a chance for them to enhance their aesthetictaste in that most of classics has a very beautiful or unique language styleand arts, which gives readers more enjoyment and interest.
However,nowadays a large number of people, especially the young, are unwilling to or cannotspend their times in reading classics. There are some reasons accounting forthe phenomenon and I would like to state two of them. For one thing, people aredistracted by other things increasingly, which can give their more joy and funand have no requirement in thinking, such as all kinds of entertainmentactivities. For another, some people think that it is no use of readingclassics because these classics are outdated and useless to our society andlives.
Inmy opinion, it is wrong to consider classics as an outdated matter because itstill has many important functions and influence on our society and our lives.Classics are a kind of treasure in a nation. Therefore, we should give enoughattention to them. And I advocate that all of us should try our best to readsome of them.
