    when i read some classical master pieces , i sometimes found the words it use little different from the words we use today. so,is it okay to read these pieces and care for every detail? should i read more contemporary article than the classical one.

    Re: how to use classical master pieces

    Whether you read classic or contemporary pieces, I am sure you have noticed that written English uses capitalisation and punctuation. Please click on "Edit Post" and make the relevant changes following these rules:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Capitalise all proper nouns (English, London, Shakespeare etc).
    - Do not put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Do not put a space after opening quotation marks.
    - Do not put a space before closing quotation marks.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    ...and note that 'masterpieces' is written as one word.

    If you wish to speak and write English as native speakers do today, then you would do better to read material that has been written recently.
