Hence it helps us understanding the society, its culture, habits, beliefs, customs and traditions. e.g. Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer gives an insight into the 14th-century society, class structure, corruption, crusades etc. Similarly, a number of texts like Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie give an insight into the racial discrimination in America. Without literature, we cannot become wise. 1 Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Athar a literary enthusiast, proud Jamiate & technocrat 484 Questions 4 Answers 0 Best Answers 4 Points View Profile Athar a literary enthusiast, proud Jamiate & technocrat Added an answer on July 26, 2019 at 11:18 pm Literature catches the spirit of mankind, it records the structure of civilisations, in any case, whether they are fiction or genuine we could learn numerous ethical exercises through the understanding of artistic works, and it is increasingly down to earth and we would rehearse the exercises in our day by day lives. 0 Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
