How To Appreciate Literary Entertainment

By Patty Goff

Words are one of the main ways people communicate on any given day. Words have the ability to inform, but they can also be very entertaining depending on how they are used. In literary entertainment, words are put together in such a way so that they bring pleasure to the world. This is mainly in the form of fiction such as novels, poetry, and short stories. Here are a few ways in which one can appreciate this body of work.

In order to appreciate fiction, it is important to know the different genres that are available. Every type of fictitious work belongs to a category of writing whether it is a novel, a poem or a short story. By reading various works, one can get to know what they like and do not like. Sometimes they type of movies that are watched can help to determine what types of reading material will be of interests.

In some cases, many prefer the books as oppose to the movie. The reason behind this mainly comes from the fact that most movie makers make lots of changes when they are writing their screenplays. This means that some of the very interesting parts of the book will be left out which can change everything. It is these pieces of the story, that make the book so much better for some people because there is more to what they are seeing on the screen.

Learning literary terms can also help an individual understand what they are reading. One does not have to be an expert when it comes to the various terms used in the world of literature. However knowing a few things can help one understanding what the writer is trying to convey.

It also helps to know the writer's intentions. Sometimes a writer might use fiction as a way to inform others of a truth. This is similar to using a parable or a tale to illustrate a moral understanding of life. Many times interviews are held with writers where they are asked why they wrote a particular book on any given subject. This can help to expand one's understanding of the author and their work.

Besides understanding what one likes and the author's intention, it is also important to understand that there is no right or wrong way to interpret anything. Even though an author might be coming from a particular frame of reference, someone with a different background might decide that a piece of writing means something completely different. Several people might love a novel, while several others might not like it at all.

Verbal art is very subjective, and it is usually left to the person reading it to decide what it means to them. This is why a person should read simply for the pleasure of doing so, not because they want to show that they are right. This also makes it easier to interact with others who have read the same book.

There are many different types of fiction to choose from. One can experiment with different types of fiction to see what appeals to them. They should also take the time to enjoy what they are reading simply because they can.
