Literature does not exist in a vacuum but is influenced by the society. It reflects the general atmosphere of a current time — its socio-political and cultural dynamics. Again, it also has the capability to influence the society by creating a plethora of knowledge, initiating empathetic conversations and placing a mirror of rectification. It helps to shape a society, molding it to create vital discourses around prejudices by either portraying the pre-existing conditions or presenting a utopian alternative to help curb the atrocities. Thus, literature has the capability to influence society and vice-verse.
