What is Literature and does it Matter?
1. After reading “what is literature and does it matter?” By Jonathan Culler I learned that the important aspects of this chapter is that it highlights all sorts of text of literariness. It describes how different meaning is made and how pleasure is produced. Jonathan culler believes that history has shaped the definition in such a way that it applies to more forms of writing than just narrative and nonfiction, rather any piece of writing could be considered a literary work. I think it’s important to think about definitions of literature because you use it in everyday life. I believe it’s one of the ways we can reflect to human nature, learn and relate to others.
2. As i read this chapter I mostly was just thinking about how many times there was literariness in other subjects and i never saw it that way until today .
