Quoting aenigma x:

Haha! We will have to agree to disagree, Slavica. I believe reading is a habit which needs to be acquired and the more you read, the more likely you are to gravitate to the classics.



Quoting reBooped:


You and I shall have to agree to differ on this - reading is essential for all and is not just about quality of literature. For a non-reader the classics could seem very 'heavy' going and would put off many - whereas starting to read anything hopefully will develop a reading habit. Once someone starts to read for enjoyment, I believe that in time they will expand the kinds of books read - and probably 'progress'onto the classics.



Come on, girls! I don’t insist on classics at all and I have absolutely nothing against reading for enjoyment. There are many valuable works among non-classic literature. But if you still insist that it is better to read ANYTHING than nothing – then I agree to disagree What’s wrong in having different oppinions?

Quoting aenigma x:


Personally, I would rather see a child reading an 'unworthy' book than playing a computer game...



Haha... absolutely agree! Except if the book is „How to kill your parents and live happily“

That was my point, there is aboslutely nothing wrong with having differing opinions ~ that is where we agree

Quoting duda:


P.S. Elisa, suppose you recommend "The Parfume"? I saw it (translated! alas!) here and from the very start I have a feeling it's something worth reading. Can you compare it to something? I would like to hear somebody's personal impressions, for I don't like to read "noncertified" books.



I adored the book when I first read it 10 years ago. You can't compare it to any other book. At least I can't. So Duda, go get it. Im sure you won't regret it.
BUT!!! DO NOT watch the movie afterwards! Trust me, I know what Im saying :-S

The Perfume by Patrick Suskind- a book definitely worth reading....

Can you imagine a world entirely made of perfumes, smells, fragrances? Can you imagine a man who knows life ony by smelling it? do you know each person has an unique smell, a smell than can make him/her anonimous or irresistible?
Once upon a time there was a man who discovered an evanescent perfume that he wanted to control: the perfume of young woman.....

Enjoy

Slavica!!

I am surprised at you!



Actually, I’m (nicely) surprised that some members, who generally don’t leave any topic without their comment, didn’t take part in this discussion

Quoting Dilara:

what other latin poets do you know or like?



Gabriela Mistral, Borges, Octavio Paz... but I’m sure there are more valuable, but not very well known Latin American authors. Maybe you could introduce us to their works, Dilara, in a special topic, what do you say?



It's great you know Gabriela Mistral! I would also recommend you Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer , Juana de Ibarbourou (Uruguayan, romantic poetry) and Vicente Huidobro(Chilean)
Cheers!
