Dealing more of literature, our impulse is to search anywhere for its definition but though we effectuate success in bundle or piles of books, we must go back to our own knowledge.
      "The spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings” is William Wordsworth’s definition to literature. In this age and society where people, particularly young people, appear to be reading less because of the proliferation of digital diversions on the Internet and other gadgets, and the failure of the media to recognize, celebrate or discuss reading, literature and authors, we must learn to start recognizing the importance of reading literatures through ourselves. We must realize its importance as a part of our culture and history, in providing perspective and opportunity for expression, as a form of art, or as a form of escape to name a few. As C.S. Lewis has said, we read to know we are not alone. Literature is important because it adds to reality; it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become.
      Literature, as we finally define with a contributory help from a reference, is the written record of man’s best thought and feeling but it doesn’t just include the instructive works but also the works which aim to give pleasure, and which are artistic that they reflect life in a way to arouse our sense of beauty. As long as the reason for writing is not gone, Literature won’t die.
