Literature must have limits

“Creative writing is an ethical question; literature, politics and pedagogy. … literature is a part of cultural achievements of a society and both get affected by each other.”

“Culture and literature are interlinked; literature is an outcome of culture. It is of the society, for the society and by the society.”

“Literature is a sub system of a society. It is perpetuated by the society and in turn affects the society.”

Therefore, and contrary to oft repeated arguments that literature ought to mirror society’s ailments, a Professor of English at Delhi University argues that such literature must have limits, because:

“Every piece of literature is propaganda and is always written with some intention. However the freedom that a writer enjoys should not be absolute or is not absolute. It has certain limitations and those limitations need to be respected…

…as literature itself is an embodiment of the various values, traditions and culture of a particular society, civilization or a nation which it cherishes and holds in high-esteem for several generations.”
