Homework Help: English- literary?

Posted by Sarah on Sunday, August 28, 2005 at 5:34pm.

Ok I had 2 eng. questions, what makes a piece of writing literature, and the second was who decides what is literary or not? I got the first question, but no idea on the second one?? Is it publishers and scholarly peers or what?


Generally, scholars determine a work's literary merit. Publishers are primarily interested in making a profit, while scholars look at the quality of writing.
