Literature broadly speaking is a group of works of art made up of words. Usually it is defined as books or other written works, especially those considered to have creative or artistic merit or lasting value.
It is also used more narrowly for writings specifically considered to be an art form, especially prose fiction, drama, and poetry. The definition has expanded to include oral literature, much of which has been transcribed.
There are many different kinds of literature, such as poetry, plays, or novels. Books written by Charles Dickens are an example of literature. Books written on a scientific subject are examples of scientific literature. It can also include works in various non-fiction genres, such as biography, diaries, memoir, letters, and the essay.
The three primary forms of literature are Poetry, Drama, and Prose.

Studying literature enables one to better understand social situations, history, one's own emotions, and various cultural practices. It also makes one more empathetic.
When we read literature, we discover common human ways of understanding life. It is a way to hear the voices of the past and work with the present and the present to connect to the possible future. Story telling is one way for humans to reach out to other humans. It is therapy, confession, entertainment, and knowledge all in one.
Reading great literature exercises the imagination. We enjoy stories; it is a pleasure to meet characters and to live in their world, to experience their joys and sorrows. In a practical sense, an active imagination helps us perceive truth, make value judgments, and deal with the complexities of life in creative ways.
Reading literature also aids in social and emotional development. For one, characters in high-quality books often represent diverse backgrounds, including varying economic means, different races and ethnicities and unique regions of the country or the world.
