Discuss the purposes of literature and how literature defines the human experien

Question Description

I’m trying to learn for my English class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

"Literature 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 irrigated the deserts that our lives have already become. " (C.S. Lewis)

Final Answer

Literature appeals to the most basic of human senses, observation, regardless how it's delivered. this in turn has an internal affect, perhaps an emotional attachment,  recollected memory surfaces, and/or close emotional bond with what is being visually observed. The purpose of literature is utilized for its powerful ability to visual influence human experience/s.
