Literature was born as the evolution of language. Both forms of literary prose embrace periodic innovations in their themes and styles and provide for growth and development. The developments of novel, short story, drama and essay prose literary forms are aimed at reflecting human life. The article makes the point of the necessity of comparison in the development of this literature.
