    Can literature change the society?

    It is said that literature is the mirror of society. I want to know do you people think that literature has the power to change society, or it is just a document to read and enjoy?

    LIterature can change society, it gets around pretty well. Usually does tell you how the world is at the moment, and what changes that need to be made. Well that is if someone is paying attention. Which political people don't really pay attention to much obviously in the white house no matter who they are. lol

    Yes it can change society and its so unique it changes society on so many levels, individual, regional, globally.  I took a class as an undergrad called War and Literature, we looked at how war and its impacts on individuals was/is translated through literature, an amazing class! One of my favorite classes and even had an impact on me after reading All quiet on the western front
