There are many types of literature out there. There is English literature, Chinese literature, and literature that comes in other languages. However, the more common one will definitely have to be English literature.
English literature deals with the works of William Shakespeare among many other famous authors such as Catherine Lim. Usually, these talented people have written countless books and each is universally acclaimed. Yes, these books do not come by chance at all. It is through talent and hard work that we are able to enjoy them.
Chinese literature deals with the history of the Chinese people and China
people. Included in such stuff as famous poems and poetry written by people
such as Li Bai. While it may seem history to you, these works are actually
really good and having survived through time till now, I strongly believe
they will continue to do so in future. They shape the characters of people
who read and believe it. Skeptic about that? Pick a book and read!
