Popular Literature:  A Marginalized genre

There are still, a thin minority of people who have learnt substantially good English by the dint of hard work, practice and a great effort, and have often felt enraged looking at the  non- standard forms of English creeping into the dictionaries, being considered official.  Their indignation is due to the degeneration of the standard language.  People who have religiously studied and mastered British English can’t accept even American vocabulary, spellings and their strange grammatical syntax.

Academic sphere was believed to be the most sacred and pure place of learning chaste language and literature. Literature was supposed to have a therapeutic value that would instil in the readers values and ideals. They clearly knew and could distinguish what was chaste and what was not good literature.

But as the time passed by, the society became more complex and there was a revaluation of  the canonized beliefs, values and standards.  Whether the  change was for better or worse is not very clear even now. The tables were turned, the canonized classics were pushed to the back burners. The marginalized was centred. A distinct line of demarcation became hazy and even disappeared.  Those who could not rise up to the ideal standards managed to pull down the ideal standards to their reachable heights. Minorities and  marginalized rose in population and there was an awakening, a cold malice to settle old scores of inequality with equality. It was not just a mutation of  the literary tastes. Lots of politics and globalization manoeuvred behind the scenes. These changes were distinctly visible in the spheres of  social, cultural and literary domains.
