While reading chapter II what is Literature and Does it matter? By Jonathan Culler, I believe that the most important aspect is when Culler shows the distinction between literature and not-literary. I come to know that literature is not only the words that simply written but it has a separate quality which makes it different and valuable attention. Some of the good literature ‘My Love is like a red, red rose’ a poem by Robert Burns, and ‘Hamlet’ a play by William Shakespeare that distinguishes from songs and autobiographies. And also I come to know how the content is very important, in the same way, it is important that how you write a work. Even the literature has the quality of creating the fiction world, that takes the reader in the imaginary world to narrate the work done. Moreover, literature has the quality of encouraging creative thought that makes people politeness and educated. In addition, literature helps people understand their thoughts and how to express their thoughts in front of the world.
After reading this chapter, only the Question that comes in my mind is what role literature can play in the real life of a person? Can we ignore the literature?
