    I can safely say that I have read a lot of different types of literature but not a lot of a single kind. What I look for is what is the message the author is trying to convey? How is he doing it and is it relevent. The style of writing is very important in how language is used. One of the best examples of a very well written book with alot of issues that are addresssed is Flight by Sherman Alexi. His command of the English language is a maserterpeice. The issues addressd are relevent in day to day life. I feel that great literature is suppose to do exactly that. It should make us look at life in terms that we don’t always think about or sometimes we need to be able to see life through someone elses eyes to better understand what goes on in the world we live in. Melding together concepts, ideas, and bringing them to life. Being abel to use language in a way to make it exciting and interesting is what makes great literature.

    I love reading literature that arouses some kind of emotion (not boredom) in me or literature that allows me to see a perspective and point of view beyond my own. I like reading about people’s complexity and why they make the choices they had made. More importantly, I like reading about something that introduces concepts I have never considered or something so interesting that it forces me to step outside of my normal thinking box and makes me muse about, and come to terms with, the ideas the author was conveying, especially ideas about life and human nature in general. In other words, I like reading literature that has a psychological theme or a profound theme about life. I also like literature that explore the “what if” questions, like Fahrenheit 451. Or literature that explores cliche themes in interesting ways, like East of Eden and it’s exploration of good vs. evil and the human freedom to choose one or the other. Or humorous and outrageous satires like “A Model Proposal” and “M. Butterfly”.

    I enjoy reading literature that challenges me and shares my ideals of the world. I like the Beat Generation authors because they lived with open minds and a carefree attitude. They wrote because they loved it and often times lived it. I find Kerouac’s nomadic lifestyle and prose extremely interesting. Great authors wandering around like bums, experiencing aspects of life most people never do. I am drawn to these nomadic authors like Hemingway and London who lived the life they wrote about; that is real.
    I also like historical nonfiction because it tells an unbiased story as it happened. I gain historical knowledge while being entertained, kind of like the History Channel. The latest book I read was Undaunted Courage by Stephen Ambrose, it is the story of Lewis and Clark crossing America by land. It contained all the aspects of a great novel while also giving a background to the geography, botany, and zoology of early America. To have been in their shoes, seeing what they saw, really pulls at my emotions. A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn is another I enjoyed that opened my eyes to the atrocities committed by Columbus and those who followed.
    Science Fiction is another area of literature I like. I think Isaac Asimov was a genius and a brilliant writer. He opened the door to new realities for authors to explore. He introduced ideas that were entirely new to the world, and did so in an entertaining and intriguing plot.

    The literature that I most enjoy includes contemporary pieces of multicultural lit. I have not made the time to read as I would like to, but when I do, works which deal with a cultural experiences are what I am drawn too. I especially enjoy works which have to do with historical themes. I enjoy a lot of auto-biographies. I recently read a book entitled Always Running by Luis Rodriguez. Too be honest the first thing which attracted me to the book was the name of the author as that is my father’s name. The book tells the struggles of a young man growing up in East LA who tries to overcome the gang lifestyle. Good read.

    I posted my website to another part of your blog, but I’m not sure if you got it. I did it way back when you asked us to, the first week of class. I’m still figuring all of this out.
