Why Literature Is Important
In a world driven and dictated by science and technology, the study of literature and art has become a matter of pastime, with almost no role to play in the actual functioning of the society. Even most of the people involved with the study, teaching and practice of art and literature do not believe that their activity has any significance beyond certain limits.
The question is not whether a work of art has any positive impact on society, or not. The issue is, how our vision of life and existence is determined. Whether we study literature or not, we have our sensibilities and feelings the determine who we are.
We need to study literature to become better human beings.
