Do you list?
redelephant: Listmania! Hip literary critic Larry McCaffery, an English Professor at San Diego State University, lists out the 100 greatest hits in 20th Century literature.
Lists are many things: memory aids, containers of information, a means of organizing materials, efforts to prioritize and overcome chaos and entropy. The following list of the 20th Century’s Greatest Literary Hits is all of the above, as well as being a means of sharing with my readers my own views about what books are going to be read 100 or 1000 years from now.
