Literature is a tangled bank where novels, plays, poems, biographies, fair speech and foul co-exist. It is polemic and fantasy, reportage and speculation, entertainment and consolation; it’s a tool kit for thinking and responding and living. It multiplies the places where inquiry, dissent, passion, dream, reflection, surprises, and visions can happen. Literature matters.
