Literature cannot be separated from human life, for it constitutes the reflection of human experiences. Rhythm of life whether it concerns with happiness or human misery is depicted through the imagination of an author, and it is presented in a literary work he or she creates, while "language is the material of literature as stone or bronze is of sculpture, paints of picture or sounds of music (Wellek and Warren, 1956: 22y'. Hudson states: ... Literature is a vital record of what men have seen in life, what they have experienced of it, what they have thought and felt about those aspects of it which have the most immediate and enduring interest for all of us. It is thus fundamentally an expression of life through the medium of language (1965: 10).
