The Subordination of Literature - Gardner Again

"John (Gardner)," Dead Beat says, "They give your book On Moral Fiction a hard time."

"You go with the blows Dead Beat."

"I kind of like your take on the Subordination of Literature."

"And so you should."

"Why don't you remind my readers Mr. G?"

"Well it's simple really: "Life is all about, and this and this and this. Literature is about subordination. It's about this because of this. This although that. This in spite of that. And that's the difference."

Simple really.
