Modern literature and the development of society have gained fundamental importance in human life. We are living in the modern era and technological advancement has changed all dimensions of life. The advent of modern technology has reshaped literature as well. The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries are important when modern literature evolved. In this era, modern literature was written, explained, and published.
Literature in the Modern Age
This century has seen some of the most meaningful novelists in the history of our human civilization. It has also seen some of the strongest writers and some of the most fascinating and unusual characters as well. It has seen an emerging realization that the right to write and the right to read were important.
There has been a great impact of literature, because when one writes, one’s thoughts, the contents of one’s head, take on a visual form. The written word takes on a reality of its own, that has, in turn, shifted the power from the sensor to the creator.
But what is this right to write?’ You may ask. It is the very fundamental right that every individual has the right to speak and to tell people the truth. But the core of the right to think is found in the right to write.
What is Modern Literature
Unlike modern literature, modern literature can be translated into many languages. While modern literature is considered to be literature written since about 1830, this is not true. One has to understand that there are always at least two conflicting theories in the literature that influence one’s writings. One is the naturalistic and sentimental theory. The other is the idealistic and romantic theory. They are both totally two different directions. Most contemporary literature is intertwined with one of them. In that respect, modern literature is very similar to modern theory.
Classical and Realism
Classical literature refers to works written during the Byzantine period. It is dominated by imagery and is usually written from a dream-like perspective.
Elements of Modern Literature
A lot of elements of modern literature are there. But epic, drama, humor, crime, fantasy, Sci-Fi, supernatural and social are some of those having prestigious positions in the literature.
Modern Day Literature is a true reflection of society. I read one of these books which made me stop and appreciate the human condition and how we live. It also made me cry, laugh, and cheer. According to contemporary researchers, modern-day literature is considered the reflection of Society. Many publishers have published books during the current period. One can find the reflection of literature on the values of society.
The effects on society
The Romantic era was one of widespread revolution and radicalism that resulted in the world by the 1830s. An era that was heavily influenced by Romanticism and represented the final collapse of the Church, and the birth of the secular culture of modernism. However, many key French thinkers were skeptical about the romantic ideals of the period, and the movement was a failure to them.
Romanticism gave birth to poetry which became quite influential in the 20th century and provided a common language to people on opposite sides of the globe. Today, poetry serves as a guide to new generations.
Romanticism also was linked to literature and organized literature, with individual writing and individual voices becoming distinct and unique within the context of literature.
Modern literature and society have a huge impact on our society. social norms evolve and reshape society. The process of evolution is continuous. Literature keeps on changing our society from time to time. Adulthood is meant to be a level of maturity where you are prepared for life’s various experiences. This generally means, as I’ve mentioned, a commitment to living a specific and characterized life, acting with a knowledge that the opportunities to grow and develop are great. It is important to be determined to keep progressing and better yourself.
Life is meant to be an exciting process where you see the sunrise and can feel the warmth from the sun’s rays. It’s important to make an impression and to be constantly adaptable. It’s not always wise to become stuck to your past and then you risk going backward. Keep moving forward and keep progressing. This is the ultimate reflection of literature on society.
