What genre, if you had to choose, should burn for all eternity?
Here are some ground rules:
No – “all of young adult fiction” same goes for “adult literature” or anything in that mode of categorizing (but erotica is still in, just no super categories that genres fall into). Genres, literary genres however loose literary is taken.
No feelings judgment. There must be a literary reason to burn it. So no “it’s icky” or “annoying” reasons.
No one gets to take offense. Correct them, provide examples, but this is pretty inflammatory to begin with, no need to add fuel to the fire.
No romance literature – that’s just a cop out.
And I will accept post-modern as a genre.
There are a lot on the list if I had to choose (I’m coming for you Proust), but for now Horror – I’m sorry Poe, you’re lovely to read, but you failed to do as advertised.
