African Folktales and Literature
What makes a book ageless is not where and when it is written. It is the soul within the pages, yearning to tell us its secret tales. It is the beauty of literature that brings out the extraordinary details about ordinary things and makes us realize that our longings, our feelings, our wishes, and our fears are not ours alone. Literature is the ultimate utopia. Within the worn pages of a book, nobody can feel isolated. No barrier can cut us off from the unfiltered, gracious discourses of the friends within the pages. It is the innate beauty of literature that makes us feel fascinated with mere words and leaves everlasting imprints in our hearts.
