2. THERE ARE FOUR IMPULSES BEHIND LITERATURE
Our desire for self expression .
Our interest in people and their doings .
Our interest in the world of reality and imagination .
Our love of form as form .
3. Our desire for self expression
Hudson says :- “ We are strongly impelled to confide to
others that what we think and feel” .
All of us have a natural desire to express ourselves .We
always want to open our hearts to others. We wish to
express our feelings and thoughts to others. This desire
for self-expression results into the production of
A piece of literature is expression of writers mind and
heart, his emotions and ideas .
4. Our interest in people and their doings
We are intensely interested in men and women, their
lives, motives ,passions, relationships .
As human beings we can not live quiet aloof from others.
We always like to know about others people their
thoughts, their feelings and their problems .
We are not only express our thoughts or ourselves but also
always discuss the others .
5. Our interest in world of reality and
As a man, we are always interested in what is going on
around us, what is happening around us .
Many times, man is fed up with the world of realities. He
wants to escape into the world of imagination, where he
experience mental bliss.
Man creates his own world, world of imagination and lives
a peaceful life away from the world .
6. Our love for form of form
Hudson believes :-“ we take special satisfaction in the
mere shaping of expression into form of beauty.”
Man, by his Nature, is unable to keep his experiences,
observations,emotions,ideas to himself, but he is the
contrary under the stress of constant, desire of expressing
these to other and for that he chooses different channels
of expression .
