In the last class, we learned about 3Bs; Background, Biography, and Bias. These are the keys in reading literatures. Why are they important?
Each of them helps readers to understand the book more deeply. Background here means historical backgrounds that can be thought to have some effects on the story. For example, the background of the film The Sound of Music was WWII. Next, biography refers to the life of the author. Sometimes biographies have big effects on stories. Laura Ingalls Wilder, who was a daughter of a pioneer’s family in America, wrote the Little House series showing her childhood.
I thought that reading literatures is entirely different from reading academic essays. Both of them have different difficult points. But I prefer to reading literature because it is full of imagination, thoughts, and beautiful words.
