The differences of modern literature characteristics from classics, and medieval, are found in rational -emperical mode of production and the way of seeing human existance. Human being for modern writers are very absurd and difficult to understand. If the classics of European were characterized by mythological stories and heroics, the mediaval stories od daily lifes were full of oral transmittion into written mode of production, while modern stories are about loneliness, individualism, and industrial environment, as weel as unpredictable life.
