Abstract

Literary criticism, sometimes called “secondary text” is interpretation or commentary on a literary author such as poet, novelist, and playwright on his or her literary works, what are usually called “primary text.” Literary criticism is conducted to comment and judge the qualities of literary works. In this paper literary criticism as writing form which explaining the literary works is having functions on developing students’ creative writing ability will be discussed. Literary writing does embody certain distinguishing characteristics: a self-conscious; imaginative mode of writing which uses words not just to convey information but as an art form. Similarly, the style of creative writing focuses on writing from emotions and thoughts rather than just giving information, which tends to be expressive, imaginative, and literary. Any writing that expresses emotions or free thinking falls into the category of creative writing. The above correlated facts and some discussion with students about their interest in criticising literary works lead the author a new notion that conducting literary criticism is able to overcome students’ obstacles in practicing creative writing.
