Literature is Intriguing

Literature is Intriguing

     Webster’s Dictionary defines literature as, “printed material; written words of lasting excellence” (157).  Throughout years of reading different types of literature, I find the word “intriguing”, best describes how I view literature.  Intriguing is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as, “to arouse the curiosity or interest; to fascinate” (141).  This is exactly how I feel when I read certain types of literature.  If it is well-written, literature allows me to become emotionally involved, and totally absorbed.  I enjoy literature that captures my attention, and is very thought provoking.
