Writers have a lot to learn from our favourite books. Authors from different genres and time periods teach us new themes, literary devices, and other techniques that inspire our writing.
Catch-22 is an example of a book that introduced a new approach to satire when describing Yossarian’s story and his catch 22s that plagued him several times throughout the book.
Books are also a great example of how writers and storytellers impact the world simply with the written word. Roots is one novel that illustrated the effects of slavery from a personal perspective.
