 glbtq >> literature >> American Literature: Lesbian, 1900-1969
Whatever form it assumes--poetry, prose fiction, political treatise, autobiography, biography, history, criticism, theory--lesbian literature, as Monique Wittig has argued and Marilyn Farwell reiterated, occupies a "space which is 'not-woman,' which is not dependent on the categorization of difference that resides in the dualisms of man and woman.
Literature that promised entry into an outcast world of "twilight" love, these novels were, as Lillian Faderman remarks, "generally cautionary tales: 'moral' literature that warned females that lesbianism was sick or evil and that if a woman dared to love another woman she would end up lonely and suicidal."
By the late 1960s, lesbian literature had been tremendously emboldened by the gay and women's liberation movements and, in contrast to these tales of the outcast, offered more and more stories of a proud and affirmative community bent on changing public discourse and conventional society's reception of lesbian life.

 Binghamton Unversity Bulletin - English General Literature, and Rhetoric
Although English and American literature and the practice of creative and expository writing are primary, the department conceives of neither literature nor writing in a narrow or parochial way.
Literature courses deal broadly with genres and themes from the past and present, and teach students how to read and analyze texts; creative writing courses foster, in qualified students, the development of serious creativity; rhetoric courses deal with both the theory and practice of communication as well as the history of oral and written argument.
Courses in literature, rhetoric, and creative writing numbered 100-149 are entry-level, intended mainly for freshmen; courses numbered 150-299 are open to second-semester freshmen or above; courses numbered 300-499 are open only to juniors, seniors, or those who have previously taken three courses in literature.

 The New York Review of Books: SHRINKING LITERATURE
However, when Dr. Adams objects to "reductive" approaches to literature, he makes an error which is so common and yet so seriously and fundamentally anti-intellectual, that I would like to try, at least, to put it to rest.
In the same vein, he seems to insist that the literary critic or, in my case, the theorist of literature offer "a form of it." Again, this is simply to commit the old fallacy of thinking or wishing a map were a landscape.
In fact, the whole point of the book is just the opposite: it develops a "notion of literature as a balance of fantasy and management of fantasy" (p.

 BCCLA Position Paper: Censorship: Hate literature, 1969
The major, but not sole, argument against proposals to suppress the dissemination of "hate literature" is once again found in a commitment to democratic government and in an understanding of the essential role which free speech end press pity in such a system.
A large amount of literature, indeed much of the best literature dealing with social, economic and political matters is quite properly highly critical of institutions and groups.
If, as is probable, the literature expresses and reinforces the hate, but does not create it, then the problem would not appear amenable to treatment via legislation which merely suppresses its expression.

She feels that a study of the roots of the large corpus of Arabic literature, one of the richest in the world, will lead not only to a greater understanding of Arabic culture on the whole, but also to a deeper understanding of how literature, both prose and poetry, develop as a universal creative activity.

She suggested that the word "Children's" added in frond of the highly esteemed term "Literature" functions in a negative manner, as far as academic value is concerned.
Children's Literature Criticism was accepted in the big family of Literature Criticism because it managed to establish a different self-image.
Proving that children's literature was also fit for adults was considered by many critics to be essential to the "whole view of the fairy tale and even of literature in general." The basis of the argument was that adults should grow with and not out off fairy-tales; i.e.

While other anthologies have focused primarily on poetry, drama, or fiction, this volume is the first to include a full range of genres.
From Michael Bronski: It would be impossible to compile a complete survey of gay male literature; the very looseness of the definition of "gay" (not to mention the wealth of possible material) would overwhelm the project.
