It is perhaps the most appropriate description of the importance of literature in our lives. Literature always reminds us of stories, epics, sacred scriptures and classical works of the ancients & modern society. Literature is defined as the body or written works of a language, period or culture, produced by scholars, researchers and specialized in a given field. As stated in the quotation by C.S.Lewis, literature not only describes reality but also adds to it. Yes, Literature is not merely depiction of reality; it is rather a value-addition. Literary works are portrayals of the thinking patterns and social norms prevalent in society.
