Abstract

When a work of Literature is read and properly understood, it becomes a tool for national development. Literature has erroneously been overlooked as one of the instruments that are needed for nation- building and national development. This paper examines the role Literature can play in nation-building. It examines the common bond between Literature and History; the importance of literary studies in our schools such as: bringing about creativity, x-raying of a people’s culture, language crossbreeding, among others. Ancient literary works such as the Israeli and Egyptian literatures have impacted so much on literary development of nations. This paper looks at those impacts in relation to the Nigerian needs in the present situation of political, economic, and social upheavals. It suggests a literary solution to these problems. Finally, the paper shows why there is apathy for reading and utilization of literary ideas by Nigerian students today and suggests remedy.
