"I do think, though, that most works must engage with their own specific period in ways that can be called political.  Let's say this: writers tend to be men and women who are interested in the world around them." (Foster 115)

I feel that all writers are absolutely influenced by the times in which they live and a work can definitely call upon details specific to that time.  I feel in this way that writing is political whether it is meant to be or not.  There are certian values and ideals of the society in which the work was written that can be found in nearly every work of literature, whether those values are upheld and praised, violated, or even critiqued they are still there; its practically inevitable.
