    Literature doesn’t just make us smarter, however; it makes us us, shaping our consciences and our identities.

    Joseph Brodsky said in his acceptance speech for the 1987 Nobel Prize in Literature, “Though we can condemn . . . the persecution of writers, acts of censorship, the burning of books, we are powerless when it comes to [the worst crime against literature]: that of not reading the books. For that . . . a person pays with his whole life . . . a nation . . . pays with its history.”
