Quote by Nelson Algren
Literature is made upon any occasion that a challenge is put to the legal apparatus by conscience in touch with humanity.
This quote suggests that Literature serves as a platform to address and question the legal system when moral conscience intersects with the collective human experience. It implies that when individuals feel a moral responsibility to challenge existing laws or norms, they can do so through literary expressions. Literature acts as a medium to explore social issues, advocate for justice, and provoke thought about the relationship between law and morality, inviting readers to reflect on the ethical aspects of society and potentially inspire change.

Audience control is really about the actor
