Literature does not know boundaries and walls in any of the possible sense. It transcends the limits, the distances, the gaps and the spaces very convincingly and that is what we have been witnessing through the years. Be it the tales of Illiad or Aeneid or Dante’s Divine Comedy, people in the Orient have always been learning about people in the Occident. Moreover, in the reverse as well, it has been the same. Even without the proper tools of communication, literature had been penetrating the thick walls of distances regularly and with ease. Today, when we are in the times of smooth communication and effective transfer of intellect age, the spread of literature from one region to another has become even more sufficient and fast. We have the mediums like YouTube, Facebook and blogs. We have the experts on these platforms who are doing their wit with and without goals. Today, I will be writing about some of the platforms on the web where you can learn more about literature.
