The colors and shapes of pop literature. Popular literature edvijas of texts meant to appeal to a broad sgetimi audience, including works in genres such as romance novels, mysteries, historical fiction, and fantasy, whose characteristics, value, and place in culture have not always been viewed unambiguously.

There is a prevailing view among Lithuanian literary scholars that popular literature stands in opposition to the high, artistic literature meant for elite readers with backgrounds in language.

If we follow the premise that popular texts are those that are easily readable and unimaginative, then popular literature can be characterized as having a simplicity of language, a lack of authentic style or creative direction, is easily predictable and populated by narrative twists predetermined by genre, trivial subjects, and stereotypical characters. An alternative view is that pop literature is a different kind of literature, one with its own standards, genres, and functions sevtimi are no less culturally relevant, significant or complex.

As we can see from Lithuanian prose, it is precisely pop literature that is more open to topical subjects and socio-cultural and psychological changes that high literature views as trivial and thus to be avoided.


Auksaviriai. I d. by Edvinas Kalėda

At the same time, the division between high and popular literature is only clearly apparent in theory. In the practical evaluation of a given work, it is not a sim ple matter to determine what constitutes artistic versus popular literature.

Quite often, the same work can simultaneously possess traits of both popular and artistic literature.

Nevertheless, the work is distinguished by a unique authorial approach against which such banal scenes take on a figurative, metaphorical significance.

The presence of an affected, developed expressiveness, documentary material, or metaphorical intent does not always mean that a given work is imaginative or innovative.

Author with a mask. Accordingly, novels with simple plots, written in an easily readable, journalistic svetiki, exploring the lives of criminals, entrepreneurs, profiteers, market peddlers, prostitutes, and the nouveau riche reflected the socio-cultural context of the time, with all of its despair, desperation, and the desire for kalleda accumulation of wealth. The prevailing theme in these works was the price paid by those with an overwhelming desire to become rich — a path inevitably leading to destruction, since the only way to entrench oneself and take power is to become part of the evil ruling structure, the mafia.

Film noir movies are populated by characters at odds with prevailing morality: The films were usually set in dark, dangerous city streets, dingy bars, or industrial districts, with storylines that emphasized temptation and sexuality, with the desire for an ill-starred woman usually signalling the downfall of the protagonist who becomes unable to extract himself from the clutches of criminals. Narratives center on the investigation of a crime, usually murder, which the hero reluctantly agrees to pursue, eventually uncovering that the real culprit of the crime is not a specific person, but rather the entire corrupt, greedy, immoral system, and often also society itself.

It then becomes impossible to bring the guilty to justice and escape from the web of corruption and violence—which explains why noir stories are considered pessimistic narratives. Some film critics such as Jeffrey Adams and Paul Schrader maintain that noir is more a mood than a subject matter.


The sense of loss, nostalgia, uncertainty, insecurity, danger, paranoia, and destruction is conveyed in these films by projecting the artificial studio light favored by the German Expressionists onto realistic exterior primarily urban settings. In this way, the entire world becomes a confining labyrinth—a scene permeated by an aura of mystery and danger suited to such dark stories of passion, all created by an interplay of light and darkness that unrecognizably distorts everyday objects, faces, and spaces.

The novels are full of action and sex scenes — flesh plays a principle role overall. In his books, crime and evil are socio-cultural phenomena, not manifestations of Satanism.

His love stories employ a more romantic code: His other novels were less successful, including Auksviriai Goldspinners, Parts 1 and 2,and Kaunas. Saulius published in two parts in and Though the novel has little in the way of action or adventure, it is full of accurate and detailed descriptions about prison life, the court system, and the daily life of the young men joining the gang world.

Stylish historical adventure novels. By combining ornate expressiveness, closely mirroring an artistic literary style long, intricate, but extremely fluid sentencesand a knowledge of history with an adventure novel framework, she has created texts that attract readers of varied educational backgrounds.
