Literature A vague term which usually notes works which belong to the major genres: Epic, drama, lyric, novel, short story, ode, etc. If we describe something as literature, as opposed to anything else, the term carries with it qualitative connotations which imply that the work in question has superior qualities; that it is well above the ordinary run of written works. Autotelic: Having, as an artistic work, no end or purpose beyond its own existence This term was invented and created by T.S. Eliot in 1923.
