Your ensconcing of the word literature within the protective armor of quotation marks tells me you don't really believe what you're saying. I know I don't.

I was being facetious, of course. But if it's closer to music and literature you'll be hard pressed to explain the need for translation. (I assume there is such a need, of course.) That would make an interesting essay.

You're right, of course, but you're always right.
