Literature is the biographical window to the human experience. It has no geographical, political, cultural, or religious boundaries. Nothing can stop it from penetrating the most intimate crevices of life--no matter how insignificant. Literature allows the reader to listen in (eavesdrop) to the gossip of life: the frustrations, hopes and dreams, triumphs and defeats of the characters who attempt to uncover the meaning of the tragic sense of life.
