Why do we need literature and those books?

What is good literature?

Why turn your head, if it is a good or bad literature here, belongs to canon or some tradition, or not?

Who and where we get whispers about good literature?

And how to have your opinion (or how to tell more about the book then “liked/disliked”)?


Fiction and reality

Do we really separate what is real and what is fiction? Why do we, pragmatic people, need such thing as fiction?

Why do you need historical fiction if there are historians work?


What do scandals in literature tell about lithuanians?

Scandals: Archaic taboo violations or marketing part?

Who cannot write about sex and who cannot be engaged in sex?

Who and how can someone be entitled to write about the Holocaust and the partisans?
