Certainly this question does not warrant an instant vote. Please do not abuse the system.

There is a fixed string recognized as alpha, namely,

  ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

Any character in the test string that is not in the above will return a fail from the str.isalpha() method.

It is useful for the reason that we may only want to accept inputs that are members of that string. There are countless ways this constraint could be applied to a programming objective.
