able to help a reader to distinguish between well-constructed literature and what tries to pass as literature.
Literature is a world where every character, every action, every element has meaning and purpose. This is what makes
literature fundamentally different from life. Life offers facts that don't necessarily have a clear purpose, meaning or

Broadly speaking, "literature" is used to describe anything from creative writing to more technical or scientific works, but the term is most commonly used to refer to works of the creative imagination, including works of poetry, drama, fiction, and nonfiction.
Literature, in its broadest sense, is any written work; etymologically the term derives from Latinliteratura/litteratura "writing formed with letters", although some definitions include spoken or sung texts. More restrictively, it is writing that possesses literary merit, and language that foregrounds literariness, as opposed toordinary language

Literature and Revolution*
What is the relationship between literature and revolution? Should lit-
erature assist revolution and, if so, to what degree? Before deliberating on
these questions we should first determine the precise meaning of the term
ìrevolution,î because many champions of revolution are found to be
generally unaware of what the term implies and what we ourselves understand it to mean. A host of problems arise from the lack of a proper
understanding of the word, whether in literature or in politics. A further
difficulty is that, like all other terms, the meaning is not determined so
much by an individualís sense-experiences as by the

Literature Review –additional information
What is a literature review?
A literature review discusses published information in a particular subject area, and sometimes information in a particular subject area within a certain time period.
A literature review can be just a simple summary of the sources, but it usually has an organizational pattern and combines both summary and synthesis. A summary is a recap of the important information of the source, but a synthesis is a re-organization, or a reshuffling, of that information. It might give a new interpretation of old material or combine new with old interpretations.

This comparative essay will demonstrate how the writers of two pieces of literature communicate their themes. Thurber’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” and Bernard’s “I’m Going,” will be compared relative to their representation of gender roles. “Gender roles are common and well-integrated into American society (Bauer & Sandstrom, 2011).” “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” humorously shows how a man and woman argue on a daily basis. “I’m Going” also shows this arguing but in play form.

A literary genre is a category of literary composition. Genres may be determined by literary technique, tone, content, or even (as in the case of fiction) length. The distinctions between genres and categories are flexible and loosely defined, often with subgroups.
The most general genres in literature are (in loose chronological order) epic, tragedy, comedy, and creative nonfiction. They can all be in the form of prose or poetry. Additionally, a genre such as satire, allegory or pastoral might appear in any of the above, not only as a subgenre (see below), but as a mixture

The next day, his coworkers find his body ripped from head to toes, and decide to give him a proper funeral.
This last part of the story shows Faustus very different compared to the beginning of the story, he is now seeking forgiveness from a god that never existed in his life. Faustus is presented at first as a man that rejects just about all forms of institutionalized belief structures, and he asking his associates to pray for him makes the story very interesting with a very clear and deep message to the reader. In other words the personification of atheism ended up believing in something it was against his doctrine.

The literature is a way of expression. Sometimes when the authors write a story, they reflects the reality of their country and the situation of the society in that place. When that happens, it is a good way to know about the country because when somebody read the story, that person took part and feel the situation. So, for the authors, that is a way to demand for attention or a better condition. On the readings of the Caribbean authors they show the reality of that country and even though the readers didn’t know about the countries that were mentioned, after reading they can do a mental image of how was the life of the people for the moment that the stories were wrote.

THE BETRAYAL OF THE ASPIRATIONS OF THE PEOPLE OF KENYA BY POST-COLONIAL LEADERSHIP.
Ngugi wa Thiong’o and Ngugi wa Mirii’s I Will Marry When I Want concerns itself primarily with the betrayal of the aspirations of the people of Kenya by the leadership that emerged after their independence from the British. Kenya’s struggle for independence was a bloody one, and it involved the Mau Mau movement as well as the ordinary people. They fought against colonial domination and especially against the land tenure system which deprived the local people from owning lands. In fact, the local people were reduced to labourers who only worked on the farms of the white land owners.
After independence the
