The literary purpose is used to entertain and to give aesthetic pleasure. The focus of the literary purpose is on the words themselves and on a conscious and deliberate arrangement of the words to produce a pleasing or enriching effect. A writer often expresses a worldview when using the literary purpose.
There is a search for something meaningful, a longing to create something of value. Within each writer there exists an artist’s heart and the spirit to share that heart with the world. It is an intimate relationship that is formed between writer and reader.
What is the value of literature?
Literature allows a person to step back in time and learn about life on Earth from the ones who walked before us. We can gather a better understanding of culture and have a greater appreciation of them. We learn through the ways history is recorded, in the forms of manuscripts and through speech itself.
How literature affects the reader?
The reading of literature similarly jogs the mind of the reader as he or she makes an attempt to relate the various events presented by an author and making inferences. Following a character through a story will bring the reader to the point of trying to think about the actions of the characters.
