The Reading Wars: Choice vs. Canon
In recent years, there has been a debate raging in the reading world: choice vs. canon. This debate is often seen in regard to books, but it can also be seen in regard to movies, music, and other forms of art. The reason for this debate is that people often have different opinions on which works should be considered canon.
Canon is often defined as the authoritative source of information. This means that if a work is considered canon, it is the only source of information that can be used to judge it. For example, in the Harry Potter series, books are considered canonical sources of information. This means that all of the events in the books are considered to be true. As a result, the movies and television series can only be considered to be interpretations of the books and not the books themselves.
Choice, on the other hand, is often defined as the ability to choose which works to include in one’s canon. This means that people can choose to include any work in their canon, regardless of whether or not it is considered to be an authoritative source of information. For example, the Harry Potter series is a choice source of information because movies and television series are not considered to be authoritative sources of information. As a result, people can choose to include movies and television series in their canon, or they can choose to include books.
The main reason for the debate between choice and canon is that people often have different opinions on which works should be considered to be the best works. For example, some people might consider the Harry Potter series to be the best work, while others might consider the Lord of the Rings series to be the best.
Ultimately, the debate between choice and canon is a personal one.
