There would be some ideas, but just a handful that has a special link. Although these concepts are independent of one another, they fill a vacuum in the other, complement one another, or constitute such a part of one another that they are intertwined and derive a separate worth from one another. One such connection is that which exists between law and literature (Sikri, 2020). Despite their apparent distinction, law and literature have always been intertwined subjects. Literary forms such as narrative and metaphor infiltrate legal writings, demonstrating the importance of linguistic inventiveness in the law. In literature’s involvement with problems of law and justice, legal standards of good and evil behavior, identity, and human responsibility are reflected or subverted. Literary works criticize and even openly fight the law, while the law strives to govern creative expression (Dolin, 2007). The law is expressed and stated via writings such as legislation, the constitution, and court decisions, which may have a density, intricacy, and open-endedness similar to that found in literary works (Posner, 2009). However, practical investigations of the link between law and literature have indicated that treating law and literature as two separate, unconnected areas is becoming more difficult (Chang, 2009).
