Richard Miller's Essay 'The Dark Night Of The Soul'

Decent Essays
Literature has shaped civilizations, politics, exposed injustice and has allowed people to connect with aspirations and emotions. It gives people insight into the minds of other individuals and or a detailed preview of human experiences. If we pay no attention to literature we might not be able to question some of our most important beliefs, examine our lives and give them deeper meanings. In the essay “The Dark Night of the Soul” by Richard Miller, he says “ I have doubt, you see, doubts silently shared by many who spend their days teaching others the literary arts. Forever fall on deaf ears, what might the literature arts be said to be good for?” (239). I can see that he has become concerned about how others see literature in modern time.
