read this PDF yesterday and it has some very cool things to say about the Canon of literature. essentially they map authors in a 2D space where the x-axis is popularity on goodreads and the y-axis is number of citations in MLA papers https://t.co/XVdzknZorB

you can define a quadrant system with lines at the xy medians. NE - prestigious but not popular. academic darlings NW - prestigious and popular. the sweet spot SW - popular but not prestigious. genre fiction, guilty pleasures SE - neither. unknowns, undesirables, the forgotten https://t.co/rQN1gdbghI

this canonicity is fractal: if you zoom in on the top right corner, the same dynamics are at play. even at double zoom, look at the author names: NE: Milton, Joyce, Beckett NW: Shakespeare, Dickens, Austen SW: Rowling, Orwell, Salinger SE: DeLillo, Roth, Rushdie 💀💀💀 https://t.co/XqNgZQyzqJ

but check it out: all those graphs are log-scaled, meaning each tick on the graph is an order of magnitude. if you try to graph them all on a linear scale, only a few dozen authors escape the singularity. these are the "hypercanon" can you find your favorites on here? https://t.co/K6aH9Uc8YQ

This is the one I stared at the longest though. top MLA authors, ranked by their MLA popularity over the last few decades. You can literally see the "stock" of a certain author go up or down with time https://t.co/I5lJYf0MsQ

he goes small because it's better for the earth, plus your savings last longer when you only have to eat like one rice crispie. it's a whole metaphor. everybody's going small. him and his wife are going small together, but then she backs out so then he permanently small alone
