Abstract

The use of literature in politics serves not only to exemplify or illustrate the proposal is performed but also for moral education. It is important to emphasize the importance of the arts in the construction of the idea of citizenship with their ability to represent the circumstances and problems of people of different classes. Through literary works, especially novels, can represent the lives of those who are different from us, who are invisible in society in a way that builds civic imagination which prepares people for moral interaction. In literature and in real life the principles of political organization are not static but are presented in a dynamic way. This is accomplished by presenting a dramatized scene with people and situations in which it matters not only what happens but why it happens. This leads us to engage with the characters, to respect their individual character. This is achieved by the way the literary imagination inspires an intense concern for the fate of the characters and determined to have a rich inner life, which is not shown completely in the other. The literature thus becomes a means of expanding affinities real life does not allow, transpporting us while we remain the same, to the lives of others, by revealing similarities and differences understandable.
