Q: If the book did not evoke any past memories or associations, do you consider it literature? Based on which other criteria? I. I did not make a very clear connection with the text at all during my reading of it. Rosenblat said "The readers attention to the text activates certain elements in his past experience-external reference, internal response-that have become linked with the verbal symbols."

Ernest Hemingway once gave some advice to his fellow writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. If something in life hurts you, he said, you should use it in your writing. In A Farewell to Arms Hemingway followed his own advice. The painful experiences of his own life that, consciously and unconsciously, he placed in this novel help make it a major artistic achievement. The first of these experiences was a physical "hurt" that occurred on July 8, 1918. On this date, two weeks shy of his nineteenth birthday, He

The “Theory of the Avant-garde” by Peter Bürger proposed that the avant-garde is “distinguished from other artistic currents by its irreconcilable opposition to the institution art , which I take to mean the autonomy of the aesthetic.”1 Bürger argued that the program of the avantgarde - Futurism, Surrealism, Dadaism, Brecht, Constructivism, and even, to some extent, Cubism - is the sublation of art in the praxis of life. 2 The art of the avant-g

However, despite the value placed on simplicity, his poems are far above what many readers would perceive to be elementary. This is demonstrated by the fact
