Writers


The evening language class that I attend is
multicultural and multiracial; most of my
classmates are international students that
study diverse subjects:medicine, law, history
and etc...in a class exercise the teacher asked
us to choose and describe a famous person.
Almost all the students chose pop singers, actor/
actresses or footballers and when I mentioned
the name of the famous writer that I had chosen,
no one knew him!! I am not against their choice,
because fun and entertainment is essential, but
I was thinking the extent that the pop singers
are overvalued and the reason why the writers,
artists, musicians, philosophers and poets are
undervalued in our society. We should never
understimate the contributions that writers
have made to our society, they have made
our lives much easier to live.

  1. I totally agree with you Nice!

    Unfortunately, we live in times of "Fast-food" in every way ... what a pity!

    Personally, my whole culture (including the camera) was obtained from the books written by great men!

    But, we live changing times...

    Best,

  2. It's sad but true. TV heroes (singers and actors mainly) are the heroes of the younger generation. I think, something should be done in school about diverting the attention to scientists, writers, philosophers.
