    I'm fond of reading. Usually I borrow books from the library, but I have
a lot of them at home, too. I like to read books about the  history  of  our
country, about famous people and  the  life  of  my  contemporaries  abroad.
Literature means much in my life. It helps to form  the  character  and  the
world outlook, to understand life better. My favoririte  English  writer  is
Daniel Defo : he was the founder of the  realistic  novel.  He  was  also  a
brilliant journa-list  and  in  many  ways  the  father  of  modern  English
periodicals. He founded and paved the way for many magazines ( "The  Revue",
"The Spectator"). DD was born in London, his father a butcher,  was  wealthy
enough to give his sone a good education. D was to become a  prist,  but  it
was  his  cheariched  desire  to  become  wealthy.  His  wished  was   never
fullfield. D was banckrote several times. He was always in  deep  debt.  The
inly branch of business in which he  proved  succesful  was  journalism  and
literature. When D was about 23 he started writting  pamphlets  on  question
of the hour. He started writting pamphlets prassing King William 3, who  was
supported by the whig party. D wrote a setire in woth. No  matter  in  whose
defends his brilliant pamphlets were written they are irony was  so  subtle,
that the enemy didn't understand it at first.  But  as  soon  as  his  enemy
realised the real character of the pamphlets D  was  sentensed  to  7  years
inprisonment. It was a cruel punishment, and when the came  for  him  to  be
set free people carried him on their shoulders.. This was the climax of  his
political career and the end of it. In 1719, he tried his  hand  at  another
kind of literature - fiction, and wrote the novel  he  is  now  best  known:
"Robison Crusoe". After the book was published, D  became  famous  and  rich
and was able to pay his creditors in full. Other novels which  D  were  also
very much talked about during his lifetime, but we do not  hear  much  about
them now. For example "Captain Singleton"(1720), "Moll Flanders"(1722).   My
famous book is Robinson Crusoe : It was  about  Scotish  sailor,  who  lived
quite alone 4 years and 4 month on a desert island.  Defoe's  hero,  however
spend 26 years on a desert island. The novel was a prase tohuman labour  and
the triumph the men over the nature. Labour and fortitude help  Robinson  to
endure hardships. They save him from dispair. The very process  of  hardwork
gives his satisfaction. R's most characteristic tract is his  optimism.  His
guiding prencipal in life was: "never  said  die"  and  "in  trouble  to  be
troubles is to have your trouble  double."  In  his  book  Defo  deseccribes
adventures of people take risks. His  books  tought  us  to  be  clever  and
brave. There are many famous people in our republik. First of all  I'd  like
to mention the name of our outstanding national  writers  Yanka  Kupala  and
Yakub Kolas. They created a  new  Belarusian  Literature  and  a  Belarusian
literatury language. Both are considered to be the  classics  of  Belorusian
literature. These names  are  followed  by  a  number  of  other  well-known
writers and poets, such as K.Krapiva,  Brovka,  Tank,  Byikov,  Korotkevich,
Gilevich, Adamovich known both in our country and abroad.  Their  names  are
sure to become history whatever it may be.
                     I  like to read books very much !!!
