Introductory


Sometimes we hear this question.. what is the benefit or outcome of literature.. Has it any productivity?

Even sometimes some poet also ask about the potentiality of productivity of poetry.

You may hear about this statement of von Goethe about literature and its impact on a nation:

The decline of literature indicates the decline of a nation.
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

Actually there is no direct outcome or productivity of literature... But if you keep concerne about the mental health issue.. then literature has a great impact and influence in our life.

Different researches find that literature has direct influence in our mental peace and condition.. And the persons who are used to have literature and poetry.. they are mentally more strong than the others.

Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.
(Cassandra Clare)

What happens when one read literature


Any format of literature has some imaginary power... And this is the basic difference between other recreations and literature.

If you watch a movie.. you don't need to visualise anything... Because the visual story is in front of you.

When you hear any music.. you don't need to imagine any sound effect.. because it is in the reality.. shouting on your ears.

Same way, when you enjoy any game.. or travel anywhere... it is also true for that format of recreation.

But it is totally different in case of literature like story, fiction, poetry and others.

That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.
(F. Scott Fitzgerald)

When you read a literature... you have it to imagine it.. when you enjoy a poetry.. you have to emerge as on it.. and you may find yourself in front of that poetry.

Whenever a person is used to enjoy literature regularly.. he is also being used to have experience about imagination on another world.

Connection of Imagination & Emotion


She read books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live.
(Annie Dillard, The Living)

And we are discussing about imagination.. It is something different than the virtual world.. I want to term it as spiritual world.

And when you will be familiar with this spiritual world.. you will be able to be confident on that area.

Because whenever we go in a area first time.. we become a little bit confused and less confident.. but when we go there regularly.. then we are used to with that environment and be confident.

Same way.. if anybody be used to with the spiritual world of the literature.. he will be confident on that area.

And the matter is.. it has direct connection with your personality and mental health. So your personality will be also developed and your mental health will be also more sound.

It is in literature that the concrete outlook of humanity receives its expression.
(Alfred North Whitehead)

Thus, if you remain connected with literature.. yes obviously classical literature.. you will be able to control your emotions.. and use it perfectly.
