Literature represents a language or a people: culture and tradition. But, literature is more important than just a historical or cultural artifact. Literature introduces us to new worlds of experience. We learn about books and literature; we enjoy the comedies and the tragedies of poems, stories, and plays; and we may even grow and evolve through our literary journey with books. Ultimately, we may discover meaning in literature by looking at what the author says and how he/she says it. We may interpret the author’s message. In academic circles, this decoding of the text is often carried out through the use of literary theory, using a mythological, sociological, psychological, historical, or other approach. Whatever critical paradigm we use to discuss and analyze literature, there is still an artistic quality to the works. Literature is important to us because it speaks to us, it is universal, and it affects us. Even when it is ugly, literature is beautiful. ‘Literature’ is primarily divided into three categories: Poetry, Drama, and Prose. Each category is further sub-divided into genres and sub-genres.

    What is literature? A Definition Based on Prototypes by Jim Meyer

    No definition of literature is really possible; perhaps not desirable either. What is literature can better be understood if we consider the following issues with the help of our actual experiences of reading:

    * How is a work of literature?

    * How is a story told in a work of fiction?

    * Do the characters in a drama/novel resemble men and women in real life?

    * Why has a play like Dr. Faustus or Hamlet attained universality? What makes the

    ‘Particular’ so ‘universal’ in literature?

    * What devices of language and structure are employed in a work of literature?

    This list of issues is perhaps inexhaustible. Hope you can initiate your investigation whichever way you find interesting. These provoked rhetoric questions linked literature with its elements in fiction and in drama Plot, Character, Setting, Theme, Structure, Point of view, Conflict, Diction & Foreshadowing. Poetry enhances the theme, the lyrics denoting Etc.

    Literature is history.  Its truth in recording the human experience far surpasses the accuracy of history books which are interpreted and reinterpreted by historians, and edited and reedited by the various powers who gain of the country in which these histories are written.

    Napoleon himself stated that “History is a fable agreed upon.”  In his famous “War and Peace,” Count Tolstoy writes a two-fold book:  a narrative set against the background of the Napoleonic Wars and a commentary on what forces enter into history.  In contrast to the contentions of many historians, Tolstoy dispels the theory of cause and effect in his reflections of the occurrences that constitute “historical events.”

    He realizes that there is an internal force in human beings which affects a revolution, not a particular incident.  History, much like his narrative, evolves from the hearts of man, Tolstoy purports.  The famous French critic and philosopher from the Enlightenment Period, Denis Diderot wrote.

    The truest history is full of falsehoods, and your romance if full of truths. Of paramount importance to any culture, literature is immortalized truth that is not tampered with; it is the veritable outpourings of men’s souls, a truth that is renewed over and over with the recordings of other poets and writers…………..

    ‘TODAY’S READERS ARE TOMORROW’S LEADERS’

    Consequently, Literature is all about life and its aspects. Experiences, History, Culture, Ethics, Religion and Environment these are the most vital components for literature fabrication and generations.
