Read the following passage and answer the questions given after it.
There exists in every language a rough and ready vocabulary for the expression and
communication of the individual’s more private experiences. Anyone capable of speech
can say, ‘ I’m frightened’, or ‘How pretty!’ and those who hear the words will have a crude
but, for most practical purposes, a sufficiently vivid idea of what is being talked about. Bad
literature (bad, that is to say, on the private level-for, as quasi-science and in relation to
man’s more public experience, it may be quite good), bad literature hardly goes beyond
the how pretty’s and I’m frightened’s of average everyday speech. In good literature-good,
that is to say on the private level-the blunt imprecisions of conventional language give
place to subtler and more penetrating forms of expression. The ambition of the literary
artist is to speak about the ineffable, to communicate in words that words were never
intended to convey. For all words are abstractions and stand for those aspects of a given
class of experiences which are recognizably similar. The elements of experience which
are unique, aberrant, other-than-average, remain outside the pale of common language.
But it is precisely these elements of man’s more private experiences that the literary artist
aspires to communicate. For this purpose common language is wholly inadequate. Every
literary artist must therefore invent or borrow some kind of uncommon language capable
of expressing, at least partially, those experiences which the vocabulary and syntax of
ordinary speech so manifestly fail to convey.
