Dr. Rajashree Neema
The canvas of literature is considerably wide, one can not think of literature on same particular theme literature is said to be the mirror of society. The society has so many colours which are reflected in the writings. If we take a backward glance at the lit. or probe into its aetiology. The beginnings of the older literature are generally shrouded in the mists of antiquity and we have for the most part to be content with guesses and hypotheses.
The French literary listerian M. Taine said that literature is the creation of three factors, The race, the Milieu, the moment. This need not be accepted as a total truth for the individual too has his own part to play in literary creations. As far as individual is concerned the sociological aspect, the race, their occupations their geography and cultural heritage altogether reflects in the canvas of literature.
