English- literary?

posted by .

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.
