User: What is literature?

Weegy: Well here is the official defenition (below) but literacture is SO much more than that. [ It can change the way you look at the world, open doors, take you into different minds, introduce you to obscure, interesting characters, show you things in a new light...more than a defenition for wiki, but here we go...The body of written works of a language, period, or culture. 2. Imaginative or creative writing, especially of recognized artistic value: "Literature must be an analysis of experience and a synthesis of the findings into a unity" (Rebecca West). 3. The art or occupation of a literary writer. 4. The body of written work produced by scholars or researchers in a given field: medical literature. 5. Printed material: collected all the available literature on the subject. 6. Music All the compositions of a certain kind or for a specific instrument or ensemble: the symphonic literature. ]
