The seriousness of literature does not influence everybody. Its intensity and honesty stimulate a sceptical mindset towards literature. Every possible type of critique pours over the literary conversation to dilute the seriousness. Complexities of serious literature require an open-minded reading while trying to interpret the writer’s sentiments. When a writer stirs uncomfortable emotions, the initial reaction towards literature is that of disbelief, accusation, and rejection of their work. Reading literature and understanding it requires seriousness. Looking down on good literature indirectly promotes a culture of trivial writing. Trying to evaluate literature without studying it seriously is a fallacy. We need powerful storytelling to convey the messages of humanity with seriousness for the future generation.
