Last year, Mr. Mo Yan won the Nobel Prize in Literature, which marked the recognition of Chinese contemporary literature from the outside world, and also attracted the attention of Chinese people to literature. But after thinking for a while, I had not read one of Mr. Zhou’s works except that I had seen the movie Red Sorghum adapted from his novel, which was a little bit related. I felt deeply regretful and even felt a little guilty. Thinking of the year before last, Mr. Tian, a schoolmate, sent a book on literary theory of his daughter. I used to read from the PostScript first, but there were two words in the first line. Looking forward to it, once Mao Dun Literature Prize was announced, he tried hard to find the winning works to read, but then he gradually became indifferent. Even whoever won the prize and what the winning works were, they were all ignorant, even Yu du can’t remember how long he hasn’t read any novel. Less reading, especially not reading literary works, has become a natural habit. After thinking carefully, there is a sense of fear in the emotion. Once, I am like reading so much?! I was obsessed with reading when I was a child, because from this window, I could see the vast sea and sky beyond the small Ravine, but it was difficult to have books to read at that time, I remember that I borrowed an old “boxer number Dictionary” from my uncle’s family to read it all day long in desperation. Occasionally, when I borrowed a book, I was so hungry that I forgot to eat and sleep. I had to watch it when eating and walking. I read books under the kerosene lamp at night, blackened my nostrils and burnt my hair several times, grandma said that I might become an Immortal in my books all day long. After going out of the mountain village to study and work, the conditions of Reading have improved, and the horizon of reading has broadened. Reading has increased my knowledge and skills of life, I also began to feel the realm of life in enriching spiritual life. But now, why don’t I read literature?! Books are indeed expensive now. But when I went to school, I often didn’t eat breakfast and never ate snacks to save money to buy books; In, many literary works were released and listed, and I used to queue up to buy books without sleep and food. Can I compare with that time when buying books now? The present books are indeed mixed. Remember a well-known professor class referred he wrote 7 book is quite proud of, see now, scissors and paste year concocted a few books is quite common, how valuable can these pieced-up water-injection meat be? What’s more, the mixed version of good and bad indeed damaged the reputation of the work. However, despite this, the Sea of books is vast, and there are many good works that can be called classics and masterpieces, right? People nowadays are indeed busy. Life pressure everyone is very busy and tired, but it is not enough to be unable to read a book for a long time? Lu Xun said that time is like water in a sponge. As long as you are willing to squeeze, there is always time. Celebrities can squeeze out, let alone our generation? Now the cultural life is diversified, and people can choose different ways, but can that way have the aesthetic experience of feeling the beauty of words and the freedom of imagination like reading literary works? The only reason that could be explained was that the desire to read books, especially literature books, had weakened and disappeared. It is true that reading literary works is not enough. Generally speaking, Yan Ruyu in The Golden House will not hide in literary works, but literature is the mirror of social life, it is the author’s exploration of the possible living situation, the truth, goodness and beauty, the enrichment of a person’s spiritual world, the understanding of the society and the improvement of the realm, which cannot be separated from the edification of culture. While reading literary works, it should be an important way. Life needs the cultivation of sentiment and the light of truth, goodness and beauty. Don’t close the window of literature. I’m afraid that pure economic animals can’t be regarded as modern people in real sense?
