There are many benefits to the study of literature. However, one of the most important benefits is to see and think more clearly and feel with more sensitivity. This will help us to live a better life than we could without literature.
By studying and reading literature, we could also develop an educated imagination. An individual with such an imagination live a richer and happier life. Also, the more literature an individual reads, the more of a scholar she becomes. And what a great life that is!
