Response to XemaSab (Reply #2)

Sun Jul 1, 2012, 06:20 PM

6. Dear XemaSab, I love you for worrying about this. But we have to find away not to be depressed

about change at this level, which I think is an inevitable part of reality, given that we exist in time. Those great old writers might have a hard time understanding some of the good writing from our time too.

Also, I think if you "practiced" for a while, you'd find your facility with the old stuff improving. One way I keep my reading hand in is to listen to audiobooks, a lot of the old classics, read by people who understand what they're saying. I highly recommend it, brings the language alive with clarity.

That said, I know what you're talking about.
