The english language and literature

The language is found to precede literature everywhere . It makes the latter . Yet , literature ,a formidable one in particular,cultivates , develops, Andren even sponsors a language and makes it a great one . In fact ,the language and literature are complementary to each other . A great literature comes out of a great language and vice versa . This story of the language and literature is applicable,in no less measure,to the English language as well as literature. However,both of them had a dim beginning . but an eminent rise . The language , orginerally spoken by the Germanic settlers in Britain,was Teutonic in character . It belonged to the Teutonic group of languages and descended from the Germanic tongue,rater from low German. That language came to be known. after the settlementzaes English ( anglix ),subsequently termed as English. But all that was the matter of the remote past . Those settlers from Germania,before their settlement in Britain,no doubt,had some sort of literature. that was unwritten and carried preserved by tradition . Earliest English literature,as any other literature,had its origin in poetry .That was unwritten and consisted mainly of songs and poems, rather heroic and stirring n character . prose literature in English came much later only after the invention of the science of writing . But both the language and literature in English developed gradually but firmly,of course in no plain and smooth manner . They had a very humble beginning in a far off,remote,hardly illumined by the light of civilization, land . But their stupendous march has taken them,to the height of excellence today . The English language is immensely opulent and a rightly claimant for the status of the international language . English literature,too,is rich and resourceful in immensity, variety and artistry. This,perhaps, enjoys maximum popularity and celebrity in the literary world, old or new.
