We’ve all heard of chick flicks, but I wonder, when the producer of the upcoming SciFi Channel miniseries Earthsea calls the books literature, is this really chick lit? I’ve never read Earthsea so I don’t now. I’m assuming things here based on John’s infactuation with The Mists of Avalon and my lack of knowledge of the Earthsea series.
But on a broader question (ha ha!), could you consider Earthsea to be literature? I’m not sure what ‘literature’ really is, other than something that’s dense, inaccessible and something only university English departments could love. I’m not sure Le Guin fits that mold.
