True Art

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

"μῆνιν ἄειδε θεὰ Πηληϊάδεω Ἀχιλῆος

οὐλομένην, ἣ μυρί' Ἀχαιοῖς ἄλγε' ἔθηκεν"
—Homer, The Simpsons
"Keepin' it thorough. :)"
"Padatyu gibisïn ego."

Here's the short version.


Present day. Present time. aHaHaHaHaHa True Art is not this. This is not art.

There is an attitude shown in some works that some art doesn't make a lot of sense and should be mocked as pretentious and elitist. It is spoken of ironically as 'True Art,' implying that it is neither true nor art.

This minotaur trope is not for you.

Today is a good day to die.[1]

Naturally, the characters doing the mocking are portrayed as Philistines by the artistic characters... if the artistic characters are allowed to say anything at all, that is. Philistines are not notably fair about such things.

True Art is not this. This is not art.

In case you haven't figured it out yet, True Art doesn't make a lot of sense. Strictly speaking, it's a quality of fiction which, in the minds of critics and artists, allows an otherwise normal work to transcend itself and become a statement on the human condition. This nebulous quality has never been hammered down by anyone, except perhaps to sneeringly look down on popular works they don't like as not being "true art." The quest to attain this status, however, has produced some distinctive tropes of its own.
