"Literature transmits incontrovertible condensed experience from generation to generation. In this way, literature becomes the living memory of a nation."

--Alexander Solzhenitzyn

I agree with this, and at the same time, hope that what eventually is considered our era's "literature" is stuff written by people like Lois McMaster Bujold, rather than some of our so-called "literary" writers. [also note that I said "some," as there are certainly literary writers who produce work that fits perfectly into the above definition.]
