Fiction novel’s shows us the views and perspective others. This type of literature help us gain a more broader perspective and can teach us more about our society. The idea of banning fictional novels is a very foolish idea. These novels do more good than they do harm and are beneficial for our curriculum and learning. Taking away this literature will not benefit our learning and will only harm our learning. “Literature is a luxury; fiction is a necessity.’’ said G.K. Chesterton.
To start with, narrative cuts through everything and grabs our attention because a narrative is just like gravity. We are hardly aware of how narratives are able to shape our lives, but we are inexplicably attracted to them. It does not matter if the narrative is fiction or non-fiction, as long as it is a compelling narrative,
In the book Thirteen Reasons Why, Hannah Baker committed suicide. Before she died, she sent out 7 tapes and on each side of the tapes there were recordings about the thirteen reasons why she committed suicide. Each side of the tape had a person as a reason why and the recording was of Hannah explaining why they were on the tapes. The tapes were numbered so after a person listened to the tapes, they would have to send them to the next person or another set of the same tapes would be released to the public for everyone to hear.

Fiction has been around for centuries, feeding the imagination of young and older minds. Usually when people read a fictional story, they don’t think about the connotation the story tries to convey. But every story has a message, and whether it be big or small, it takes a complex, deeper thinking to be able to find that message. It is apparent that the reason we study fiction is to be able to find that deeper thinking within ourselves and enrich our imagination.
Literature is important to allow readers to escape reality within the pages of a book, and also to preserve the past by reading about personal experiences and understanding the norms of different time periods. It is beneficial to provide a new world for the reader, but it shows our history and how it has changed over the years. Many fiction writers hint at real-world experiences or topics and it is up to the reader to interpret the theme of the literature. Authors write to preserve our past and to show a common theme as well as open the door to allow the reader to delve into the words on the page.

It is also about viewing things in perspective and seeing things differently. Fiction gives us new lens and it opens up to how the character and narrator thinks. It also shows how events can unfold in the real world rules and timeline. In one of the cites it said how it tells us how some events in the book can led to real world rules and timeline. Also it says that it can tells us the way on how the character and narrator think. This helps the students because it gives them multiple lens and it sometimes connects to real world rules. Within that it can also challenge the reader to really think about it. People reading fiction help them find new lens because they have to pay attention to the details in the book to find the lens.

I have never been as comfortable with people made of flesh and bone than I have been with those made of words. Whatever information I lose in the contours of the human face, I have no trouble locating in the unchanging, permanent text of a book. There is something about literature that felt safe to me; the worlds created within far more welcoming to little girls with problems fitting in than the one outside the pages. For this reason, fiction, from Harry Potter to The Book Thief, has remained my greatest passion ever since I learned to read.
It is a necessary release from reality for some, giving a temporary escape from the pressures and consequences of every-day life, and the exploration of what life could have been like. The fact that I am unable to gravitate fully towards one life, one character, or one story, represents my constant wonder of everything. I have always loved fiction, but have always been a realist, easily separating fiction from reality and removing emotion from reasoning. The what-ifs of the world have always intrigued me, drawing me deep into the endless realms of possibility in my own life. My aspirations of success in the business world have always been there, but variations on how I will achieve this or changing my definition of success continues to
Fiction puts readers in the shoes of the characters and helps readers view the world in a different light. Fiction novels allow us to see the world from different perspectives. It sheds a new light and ideas for readers that can be used in their everyday lives. Giving readers perspective on certain situations and how to handle them. Readers are given a new idea on what can happen to the world if it continues to do something. For example, Fahrenheit 451 allows readers to see what could happen if they continue to excessively use technology and ignore what’s in front of them. Thus, making readers have a more open-mind towards certain situations and capable of seeing and understanding different opinions. What we learn from fiction novels can cause
More specifically, kids in that age group have experienced trauma and don’t understand how to handle it, and fiction novels can help them. For example, “The Boy in the Black Suit” describes a young teenager that just went through a loss of his mother and experiences depression, but then shows how he lives on with happiness and copes with his depression. Although Catherine Gewertz might object that majority of fiction books don’t have applications to real life and non-fiction can produce the same results, but I maintain that teachers can hand pick a selection of books that apply and nonfiction cannot pinpoint problems as precisely as fiction. Therefore I conclude that fiction has an important place in high school curriculum and benefits students greatly in using empathy and dealing with
