Literature- A new take on writing

Do you love to read English novels or are you a Shakespeare lover?

Are you a person who loves to watch English movies or plays?

Do you love reading anything in English language and have a fond place to read poems?

Along these lines, if English literature is your passion and, creative energy and research is your karma, and need to pick the profoundly inventive profession, at that point, English Literature is only the correct decision. Generally, a course in English writing prompted you to a vocation in scholastic research, educating and distributing. With the difference in business elements, financial development, more concentration over marking and innovativeness, part of the Internet and numerous different things have opened a wide assortment of vocation ways in India. In spite of the fact that let us think about the new take of writing before we push ahead to all the career choices accessible for literature students.

The first words that are to be written in any literature are regularly the hardest, nevertheless when they come effectively. The primary words are ones that open up another world, acquaint us with new characters, ones that we may not be familiar with, in any event not in real life regardless of whether you have filled the pages of a notepad with character characteristics and have innumerable pictures stuck on a Pinterest board. For me, the start is the most testing time of composing literature. The street ahead appears to be so long, and in the middle of those stretches of the street where things appear to be incompletely lit up, the general course feels faintly lit.

Literature embodies the primitive art of expression which engenders an individual to expand upon intellectual thought. As a medium of reflection, similar to that of art and music, writing endows humanity with the ability to contemplate multiple aspects of life. Thus, writing is not only a luxury but also a necessity that enriches one’s psyche. Evidently, like all other art forms, the mastery of writing requires patience and practice. All writers understand the potential of writing, despite the fact that it brings about weaknesses and strengths.

Literature, in order to be effective, must imitate the context of the times in which it was written. A modern novel, for instance, that didn’t address the needs, interests, and concerns of today would not necessarily be successful, unless it was extremely well written. And even then, it would probably not be remembered for long. In the same way, ancient literature addressed those same issues for ancient times: the needs, interests, and concerns of the people for whom it was written.

It has been noted that the long-held belief that literature intended for the ear differs from language intended for the eye. Seven stylistic features were tested for ten pairs of formal, persuasive public addresses and published writings of major figures from the last fifty years. It was found that in comparison to written style, oral style uses significantly more personal references, more personal pronouns of the first and second person singular and plural, shorter thought units, more repetition of words, more monosyllabic words, and more familiar words. No significant difference was found for the variety of thought unit length.

In today’s time, grammar is a way to attain beauty. When you speak or read or write, you can tell if you’ve said or read or written a fine sentence. You can identify a well-turned phrase or a modish style. But when you are smearing the rules of grammar capably, you peel back the layers to see how it is all put together and you say to yourself, ‘Look how well made this is, how well constructed it is, how solid and ingenious, rich and subtle.

From a literary point of view in England and the USA during the modernist period (mid-twentieth century) was a period when literary writers comprehended that they were on the cusp of something groundbreaking; in any case, the literary writers in the Modernist Period comprehended that there was no "returning." The best way to go was forward and to go ahead intended to grasp it completely. Innovation was on the ascent! The component was natural! The world was turning a substantial corner and journalists and writers felt it happening. There were numerous developments in this period, and they all looked to be the voice of their age. What these authors comprehended was that Greece was not going to rise once more, but rather you could take the smashed leftovers of Greece and make something new. Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot were extremely fruitful around there.

The issue is again this is an oversimplified articulation that the people of yore didn't have an awesome history to think back upon and they didn't have an innovation that could wipe out untold quantities of individuals in such a brief timeframe. They had heroics, and we have just ruined and hopelessness. We take a gander at our inheritance, and we can't consider things to be improving thus we discover a way and there are many, dissimilar to in the antiquated occasions to comprehend this feeling we live in a period out of joint where returning isn't an alternative and looking forward is befuddling and difficult. As a last piece of contrast, I'm helped to remember Walter Benjamin's Angel of History. Benjamin was one of those uncommon spirits who remain on the slope of progress. He lived in the Modernist minute. However, his considerations are the particularly post-present day.

Let me be brief about the career options one must explore after studying literature:

• Publishing is one such segment, where English literature student can certainly build a career, yet again you require solid academic foundation, abilities and learning to exceed expectations in this field. There are global, national and local distributions offering general and independent jobs for authors, analysts, scholastic scientists for growing course content for schools, universities, colleges and different foundations and associations. 

• Students of English literature gets the parcel of chance in theatre, media and media outlet of India. Visit any school’s theatre society you will discover numerous English writing understudies have devoted their lives to the enthusiasm in theatre.

You can likewise function as a specialist in the business.

• There are different occupations accessible, for example, language specialist, translator, the trial officer (in national banks), and employment at different levels in an organization. For these employments, you may require low to high altitude in the English dialect, composing abilities and others with a specific end goal to be qualified for one of these.
