Literary Shelf  

It is our past, our present and our future. The world of literature can arguably be one of the best ways to remember history. From classic Shakespearean verses to the elegance of the Romantics, literature has a tremendous impact on today's society. We use excerpts from novels and lines of poems in everyday conversation without really understanding their origin or significance. Looking back at literature from the ancient past will help us appreciate the richness of words. 

Thus, enters The Literary Shelf, a column dedicated to the exploration of distinguished works through time.
