According to Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary...

1. The writing or the study of books, valued as works of art contrasted with technical books and journalism
2. All the writings of a country or a period
3. Writings that mirror the history of humanity

"It is a study of the creative outputs of man that surely gives a broader, deeper insight into the humanity of mankind, irrespective of TIME and AGE."

Although TIME and AGE in which an artistic creation is made, influence the CONTENT, MEDIUM, and FORM of the artwork to a great extent.
1. Oral vs. Written

2. Fiction vs. Non-fiction

3. Prose vs. Poetry
Prose: essays, letters, short stories, novels, biographies, anecdotes, tales and legends
Poetry: dramatic poetry, narrative poetry, lyric poetry

Group 1: What does "death of print" mean as stated in the article?
Group 2: How has "electronic literature" grown to be an emergent form of literature in the 21'st century? Give some proofs stated in the article.
Group 3: What is the message that "science fiction, in parallel with technological advancement" is trying to convey?
