Reading Books

You probably came across Top Lists – books that you want to read it. For me personally, these lists are useful to know, and not forgetting there something important. But books published so much that one can hardly have time to read at least small part of them. And preferably with the best part. Correctly say: in life you want to read ten books, but to learn what, you just need to read thousands.

And really, how many books people can read? A bit of history. In Cuneiform library established king Assurbanipalom (VII century bc, Assyria) storing more than 20,000 clay books. Clay was the first material for books. In the age of papyrus book's richest book collections of antiquity was Bibliotheca Alexandrina Ptolemaic kings (about 700,000 papyrus scrolls). The first Gutenberg printing experiments began in 1440 created the first Gutenberg printing equipment, has invented a new way of making a font. And already second half of xv century was a time of triumphal march of printing in Europe. Kevin ulrich has many thoughts on the issue.

The first printed book of the Moscow State is printed by Ivan Fedorov and Petr Mstislavets "Apostle" in 1564 and already in 18 century Russia produced 9.5 thousand editions. In the Soviet Union during the period 1918 -1982 he – published 34 million books and pamphlets circulation of more than 57 billion Only Tolstoy published a number – 323200000, Pushkin – 301400000, – 142100000, Lenin – 600 million copies . We turn to the present day. In 2008 alone Mr. – 123 Thousands of titles were released circulation 760 million copies. Look to the West – Library of Congress, the largest library in the world, contains more than 130 million items, including: more than 30 million books and other printed materials for 470 languages, more than one million issues of newspapers from around the world, 58 million manuscripts. Thanks to computers, the Internet, we have access to any information. In this digital information to 3 million times greater than print (all ever published). According to the company Webscan Technologies in the first half of 2008 was published in RuNet 13100000 news. Half of them, of course, is duplicated on different sites, but nevertheless the figures are impressive. Rhythm of Life accelerated. Other competitors newspapers (in the form of tv, radio) and take away without a little time left to read. And you want to read so much. What's left to do in this crazy information flow? Only one solution – improve the efficiency of their information. And not only in terms of reading books, but also when dealing with other types of information. Ability to work effectively with information in the 21 century – will be one of the main competences of man. And yet – how many books the average person can read in my life? If you read an average of 3 books a month for 60 years, receives about 2,000. Is this the limit? What to do with the 123,000 books published only in 2008, not to mention published previously.

School Influence

It always has more than literature in literature (Barbosa, 1994, p,22). We observe that the literature question is of what is written, does not involve much more, when reading a literary text finds history, geography, sociology always has dialogues between diverse areas, in this direction is necessary appeals the diverse strategies to teach literature to our pupils. In relation to the school it has worked very badly in this direction to conceive the pupil as something that she needs to be molded with information ' important. This because, in a general way, it has been worried very about the ticket of these meanings, assuming a moralista, positivista, inheriting position of a tradition that not it still received critical the necessary ones, since these had been almost all momentneas histricas and; such critical ones, in the case, would have to come of an internal knowledge of this School, its real reformularization and its principles. When everything this to occur, then will be possible to think about literature as creation, workshop, game, task of basic accomplishment of the human being.

(Barbosa, 1994, P. 26) literary reception e, also, the definition of the literary rule, has much to see with the university and the school in all the levels. In the pertaining to school environment, since basic education to the college student, the influence of () the professor () is considerable. Its opinions, indications, commentaries, etc, can negative influence positive or for the choice of determined workmanships and exclusion of others. This power to influence estimates, of the part of the professor, a proximity and taste for literature.

Contemporary Literature

It is the intertextualidade and the contextualizao of the image with the text, this way to carry through literature is reflected of the technology that currently it searchs to summarize in an only multiple object of consumption functions (cellular that it is schemes photographic, radio, computer etc) is also the consequence of the new didactics on the basis of the linguistics, that searchs the many possibilities of readings and the multiple possibilities of expression and language. The contextualizao and the intertextualidade in Imparcialista Literature respect these many possibilities of reading, therefore the reading that the poet carries through on the figure is subjects to the text printed matter on this image. The reading that the poet makes on the image is only one reading that if makes ahead of a fact, this reading can be modified in other situations that another text brings. The contextualizao and the intertextualidade photograph and literary text are a possibility of poetical expression of our Age of the Information. In this association of text with the image it has one donation of meaning and context, in such a way has an intensification of the poetical one in the text when in the image.
