Definition of Literature

Literature is like water,


It does have ups and downs,


As is seen in the sea-waves,


Yet it works as the hearts’ redeemer.


 

They say that literature is like a mirror,


To Solzhenitsyn, it’s the “living memory of a nation”,


To Chesterton, it’s “a luxury”,


To Assante, “literature is air”.


 

Literature is that certain destination,


Where the writers and readers assemble in unison.
