Abstract

Language is very important thing to our life because language has strong influence in the society relationship. Language is one important thing of communication and language can express speaker‟s ideas, feeling, emotion, and suggestion. Literature is a part of language and language is tool for communication. Therefore, literature cannot be separated from language. Literature is simple another way we can experience the world around us trough our imagination (Jones, 1968). Literature not only provides pleasure for the reader but also gives something more important to understand life. Koesnoesoebroto mentions two kinds of literature.

Literature of imagination interprets experience by a fictitious presentation of person, ideas, and events. The creative writer is not only primarily concerned with the actual truth of particular events but also their imagination. A song is one example of literature of imagination.
