I'm confused by this 'timeless' definition of literature. I have some questions.
  Are some books 'literature' in the UK and not in the US because they're out of print in one country and not in the other? Is a book considered 'literature' when it's reprinted but not while it's out of print?

************ Gilgamesh or Beowulf, can't remember which, was out of print for over 2000 years, if I recall, and still made a big comeback. Now that's impressive.
