Genre fiction must be comparable to literature if it is to have any merit. Storytelling does not make concessions based on genre, nor does the language change based on audience. One would not compare a children's novel to an adults, a poem to a short story, nor an essay to novel. They serve different purposes, the demands made upon the author and audience are different. But a novel is a novel regardless of genre. To say that genre fiction can not be compared to literature only serves to disparage genre fiction.

First of allQuote:
Second of all, that second dude sounds like a right dick. It's all well and good that his friend wants to help him out but letting those personal and business lines cross is always very risky and in this case, the dude turned out to be a jerk to the workers. I hope the work situation gets sorted out so can just get on with your job.
Glad to hear that you're in touch with your friend again, I have the same problems with friends who live in London. Just tonight I went to visit one of my oldest friends that I hadn't seen since his wedding in the summer and I don't really see him often since I left London in 2007. It was really good to spend time with him and another very close friend from our childhood, reminiscing about our youth Hopefully now that you have her number, you'll be in touch more
What's this last thing you need doing?Quote:
Reading all of this has made me sleepy
That's a nice quote.
Like for example, Edgar Allan Poe, who wrote detective and horror stories, which can now be considered as a "sell-buy" type of literature to please the audience were in fact made so that the author can portray his tragical life and suffering via those genres. But genres never really fit into the grand view of belles letters. They are often ridiculed and satirized, examples:
Don Quixote - Chivalric romance, Gulliver's Travels - Adventure Novel (Travel novel), Candide - Popular philosophy fiction of the day.
All questioned the trends, and popular stuff to read at the day. I find this a good way of producing individuality and resisting what is popular with what is ones own personal taste or belief.

Opinion obstructs the path to the "truth". (I just can't use the word truth without " " nowadays ><)

I don't know for sure. Its hard to believe when there are many versions.
I was amazed to see how pentacle or pentagram is associated with evil or dark magic etc. Its origin and symbolic meaning is totally opposite.
It's the same with symbols like a Swastika or an Petrine Cross. The former is more about stigma around more common/recent usage and the latter is just a misconception. Swastikas were used all over the place in the Western world for stylistic reasons in fact. Not like it's missed or anything though.
