My difficulty results partially from the multiple definitions of "literary"...

************ Miker says,

Harold Bloom says it gets the Big L by passing the test of time. If it lasts, it's Literature.


I don't always agree with Harold Bloom. In fact, I think that sometimes he is full of crap, but I do agree with his definition of literature. It's one that I've mentioned myself now and then.

My problem is something like Kerry's though, if we use the dictionary definitions, a lot that is
"literary" is crap as well.
