At the moment, as well as several centuries ago, people simply can not imagine their lives without literary works. They are found everywhere - in children's books, at school, at the institute. In the more mature age, the literature is not read by compulsion, but because one wants to do it. In any case, regardless of whether there is a desire to take a book in hand, literary works take place, and reading is still quite common in Russia.
Integrity and style
The basis of all writing art is integrity. This does not mean that in stories or, for example, novels, authors need to lay down a full description of the life of the main characters. There must be a definite beginning, denouement, where the writer raises the problem and the idea, and, accordingly, the completion. If the work is not built, then it will never receive a worthy critical evaluation and will lie on the shelves of libraries or publishers, as usual.
It is impossible not to say about the style. Each author has his own way of writing literary works, as a rule, his writing feature is unique. However, one can not regard style as a classical artistic tool. Everyone has his own form of writing or retelling, but this does not allow to call him the genius of literary works. For such a loud title, talent and a wide creative horizon are required.

Thus, there are a lot of literary works, and all readers choose the most suitable genre for themselves. Some masterpieces remain in history forever, the rest have less bright prospects. They, as a rule, immediately after reading are added to the furthest corner and lie there until their master is convinced of the uselessness. But one thing is certain: literary works have a long history, their fans, and they appear constantly. In modern times, writing activity, of course, has lost its significance, but it has not disappeared. Each epoch has its talents and literary creations, which play far from the last role in raising the culture and morals of all the inhabitants of the planet.
