His name alone, when talked about in today’s world, is looked upon as such a dark and mysterious innuendo that people are missing the true talent this guy really had.
Unfortunately for our time, writing and literature has seemed to fall off the side of the earth. Why you ask? Maybe because everyone is too busy thinking about making a quick buck. Or even how can I make my selfies stick out from a crowd? Perhaps even because they want to make sure they have enough time in the day to play video games (I myself fall guilty to this).
At the end of the day I start to wonder why we even take English or History in schools. Nobody nowadays is going to need or use this knowledge anymore, and for those that do they end up having to find a career in a different field due to lack of pay or simply job demand.
When I look back, it’s actually a bit sad how much our times have changed from their past, but then again it is neat to see how far we have come.
For those of you who have ever played video games that are futuristic and attempt to let us think what our future will look like, it’s kinda scary how accurate they are. Though some may be a bit overboard, but in all honesty, we are going right down that path.
Technology is the name of the game. Everybody wants it, needs it and loves it. It is shaping the universe we live in. Most can’t remember the last time they had to actually sit down and write an essay on notebook paper.
Most can’t even tell you some of the great poets and authors of our past.
Others don’t have any desire to find out who is who in our history.
While maybe a 1-5% actually give a crap about our past time.
Fortunately, I am one of those people. Though I may be in that measly bunch, I am here to make some noise. My goal is to try and educate some of our generation on the importance (though it is small) of knowing why these guys are so important.
Without them, who knows where we would be. These guys, believe or not, have helped shape the technology we have today.
How you ask?
I will say, I truly and honestly believe, that the some of the guys who have shaped our technology gen have read through some of these historic figures works of art.
They read and possibly enjoyed them. The main thing is that they read them. Why? Because they were able to take a piece from each piece and somehow some way create a little more knowledge in their arsenals.
This how these great authors and poets have helped shape who we are today. Call me crazy but I truly believe this. These guys are awesome and this is why I am taking the time to devote a blog about just one of them.
Remember where we came from and respect the art of literature and writing. Consider them the base structure for the enterprise we have developed into today.
