  • Description:

    English critics recognized the role that living literature plays in society. Literature is an instrument of social influence. What is important in Literature is its content; that content is not to be taken as merely synonymous with formal ideology, generalized themes, and the explicitly stated ideas of the writer, rather, it is the shaping of life itself into literary form which is a way of feeling and thinking and seeing life that the creative artist depicts. Literature enables people to feel those aspects of life more deeply and affords pleasure. Literature heightens and intensifies one’s understanding and awareness; it contributes to the development of society. Literature is a reinforcement device; a product of a particular culture that functions as a model for that culture.
