Literary focus what is literature?

Since the dawn of civilisation many men and women have felt a vital need to communicate their thoughts and feelings beyond their immediate circle of family, friends and acquaintances to a wider world. Thanks to the invention of writing and printing they have been able to hand down to successive generations a priceless treasury of manuscripts and books.

Literature is generally taken to mean those pieces of writing which, despite the passing of the years and even of the centuries, still inspire admiration, reflection and emotion in readers. Poems, plays, novels and short stories in a given language that have stood the test of time collectively make up a national literature.

This does not mean, however, that only older works can be called literature. Today, millions of books are produced every year but only some of them find their way into literary magazines or onto the literary pages of newspapers. In these cases it is the critics and not time that decide what is and what is not to be regarded as literature. Whether their choices are appropriate or not will be a matter for future generations to decide.

It is impossible to formulate a totally comprehensive and all-encompassing definition of literature because literature is never static. Writers, genres and styles of writing have fallen in and out of favour throughout history and even today arguments rage about whether more popular forms of tiction such as detective stories should be considered literature. These disputes can be left to the critics because, for the reader, literature is simply beautiful, meaningful writing.
