Incidentally, below is, ironically, a Google Chrome Thesaurus definition* of "meta":
- (of a creative work) Referring to itself or to the conventions of its genre; self-referential
METALITERATURE: Literary art focused on the subject of literary art itself. Often this term is further divided into metapoetry, metafiction, and metadrama.I'm pretty happy with my definition, and would welcome any comments to the contrary or, indeed, in support. I'm also happy to live in ignorance, so it's up to you**.
元文学 (Chinese - simplified)
मेटा साहित्य (Hindi - my favourite as is particularly pretty)
Meta-tài liệu (Vietnamese)
*For a more interesting definition and in context, you should probably check out the Oxford Online Dictionary entry.
**You may consider this a fraudulent attempt to court mis-directed visits from random countries for no other reason that to clock up on hit-counts. You would be correct but also in danger of revealing the vanity of this whole set-up, so I would kindly ask that you don't tell anyone, okay?
