Great essay by Orson Scott Card on the difference between "literature" and "volunteer-read literature."

I totally agree with everything. It's like he took my complaints against all the English departments I've ever been faced with and said everything I wanted to say in an articulate way that didn't /majors involve the words "hordes of pretentious barbarians."

If any English departments or majors are reading this, you can be assured that I'm not talking about you :)
