Describe your personal relationship to literature and to reading. Begin by considering  the meaning of literature. What does the term literature mean to you? What makes  something literary in your own mind? If literature means different things to different  people, who defines what is and what is not literature? Next, reflect on your relationship to reading and literature. What kind of reading  engages/interests you? What about that writing draws you in? Do you find meaning in  reading certain writing? If so, describe the satisfaction you draw from this process. Also  consider how you read. Do you, for example, take notes or mark text as you read, or do  you simply absorb the material on a page? There are no right or wrong answers to your response. This discussion is an opportunity  to reflect on what literature is to you, as well as to consider the many meanings that  literature may have for others in the class.  Since I was a child I have always enjoyed reading.Reading to me is better than anything else. Literature to me is anything that I can read,poetry is one of my favorites to read.I love to read everything and

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
