A. Background of the Study

    Literature means writing valued as a work of art. It also refers to the composition that tells stories, dramatizes, situations, expresses emotions, analyzes, and advocates. Richard Taylor (1981:1) says : “Literature, like other arts, is essentially an imaginative act of the writer’s imagination in selecting, ordering, and interpreting life experiences.” 

    A literary work can be defined as a branch of literature dealing with words as raw material to create a picture, an idea or a story in a meaningful pattern. Yet words, being the backbone of the pattern, are not really of great importance if they aren't carefully manipulated into good syntactically stractured sentences so as to convey the target idea in an artistic way. By this it is meant that the work is valued as work of art with a literary style which is, of course, different from that we use in colloquy. 

     The literary work is two types, either a creative writing or the study of what is written. Writing is a creative work that values man as a creator and raises his existance above the world of subsistance, but that work we call "study" is the way (by which) another literate person sees and analyses the work in question. The literary work, as a work of art, can be a drama, a fiction, essays, biography or journalism and so on. Sometimes the author deals with an imaginary world such as in novels,poetry and drama (movie).
