A recent study reveals that people, especially young people, are reading far less literature—novels, plays, and poems—than they used to. This is troubling because the trend has unfortunate effects for the reading public, for culture in general, and for the future of literature itself.

While there has been a decline in book reading generally, the decline has been especially sharp for literature. This is unfortunate because nothing else provides the intellectual stimulation that literature does. Literature encourages us to exercise our imaginations, empathize with others, and expand our understanding of language. So by reading less literature, the reading public is missing out on important benefits.

Unfortunately, missing out on the benefits of literature is not the only problem. What are people reading instead? Consider the prevalence of self-help books on lists of best sellers. These are usually superficial, poorly written, and intellectually undemanding. Additionally, instead of sitting down with a challenging novel, many persons are now more likely to turn on the television, watch a music video, or read a Web page. Clearly, diverting time previously spent in reading literature to trivial forms of entertainment has lowered the level of culture in general.

The trend of reading less literature is all the more regrettable because it is taking place during a period when good literature is being written. There are many talented writers today, but they lack an audience. This fact is bound to lead publishers to invest less in literature and so support fewer serious writers. Thus, the writing as well as the reading of literature is likely to decline because of the poor standards of today's readers.

In the lecture, the lecturer casts doubts on three points provided in the reading passage to support the point that people literature reading habit decress in a high amount which is a major concern to the culture.The lecturer asserts that none of them are satisfactory accusation on top of the point.

Firstly,according to the reading,since the literature prevides intellectual stimulation in greater extent than any source the less reading of literature is caused a great lose of the cultural benifits to the people.However ,the lecturer disputes the point.He sys that ,there are too many sources such as science ,music and many other source that are also beneficial to stimulate the imagination.

Secondly,The reading claims that ,the readers are more iincline to the self development books which are too poor and superficial to develop the reader's demand.He also adds that people are now like Tv shows and miusic video or web browsing insted of literature reading.Nevertheless,the lecturer attack this points too.He believes that ,those sources on which the reading objects are also too good to develop and evaluate the culture .

Finally,on contrary to the reading that claims that the literature are not supported by the publisher to produce good writhings although they are of very good quality.On the other hand,the lecturer claims that,the publisher support the high quality writers and the ther eare authpor fault to create high quality literature work.In order to bloster this point he claims that the moodern writers are often too diffecult to undersandt by the public.
