Arts and literature have been an important part of human history for centuries. Early forms of art were often created as a means of communication, telling stories and conveying messages. Over time, these early forms evolved into the more complex and refined art forms we know today. Similarly, literature also has its roots in early forms of communication. However, unlike art, which can be enjoyed by anyone, literature was originally intended to be read aloud, allowing it to reach a wider audience.
