The most important things in the modern world are the internet, smartphones, and smart TVs.
And that means that every now and then someone gets in a good argument with one or more of these things.
As we’re all well aware, the term “literary” is used to describe the process of reading, not the medium itself.
But even as technology has allowed for more people to access content, its been a slow transition for the way we consume it.
And as digital media and apps proliferate, the way that people consume that content is changing.
In this new article, literary critic and blogger Andrew Lutz takes a look at the “literature” that has been “making its mark” in the internet age.
What’s been “good”?
Lutz notes that while some of the most notable literary works of the past few decades have come out of the United States, there’s a lot of “interesting” work out there, too.
And, he adds, “there’s plenty of time for literary studies, and other humanities-related pursuits, to emerge as a new, broader discipline.”
Here’s what Lutz has to say about the current state of literature, the rise of “literacy culture,” and what literary critics are doing about it:What is Literature?
Lutz writes: When I first heard the term ‘literature,’ I was horrified.
I was even more horrified when I saw that it wasn’t even a word that I knew.
It sounded too much like the jargon of the day.
But then I read through Wikipedia and found that it was a word.
It was the one word that most people could agree on: literature.
So I’m glad that I was able to find it.
I’d heard it a million times before, and I thought it sounded so natural and appropriate that I just went with it.
So that’s the word.
Why is Literature Important?
There’s a common misconception that the word “literate” means something that “everyone can do.”
Lutz explains: There’s this idea that it means a specific type of human behavior, or something that people do when they have the same or similar interests.
The truth is that literature is the most important discipline of our time.
It has the potential to make a difference in our lives and to shape the future of our culture.
In the process, it has been instrumental in shaping the culture we are, and it is the foundation of the future.
Lutz adds: Literature is a way of looking at the world through the eyes of a reader, and through the lens of a writer.
It is an intimate exploration of the human condition, and the role of literature in shaping it.
But the word has a deeper meaning that transcends this narrow lens of reading.
It’s a kind of poetry, an expression of a human experience.
It’s a “literariness” that comes from the fact that we all share the same experience, Lutz says.
We can all have a great book, a great conversation, or a great dinner party, and yet we all are different.
It requires a unique and unique experience to engage with it, and this is what makes it so valuable.
