Lewis, in this quote, very nicely explains the impact that literature has on reality, as good literary works portray the thinking patterns and norms that are dominant in any society. These valuable works are good depiction of different aspects of common man’s life. Classical literature, especially, is a healthy food for thought and a catalyst for creativity. Exposing a person to good literature is equivalent to providing him an opportunity for good education, as literature enhances one’s thinking capability and imagination.
