    You say "at best 'art as defined by one school of thought.'"

    There are many aims of art, and they each serve their own purpose. My aunt likes to rewatch TV shows she knows by heart already, which is about the opposite of 'Defamiliarization' - but it makes her happy.

    The "strangeness" Bloom talks about, and the newness that bookgirl and I look for in Contemporary Fiction, is, I think, something more than one school of thought on art. It is something that any artist ambitious to make fresh art with original style is looking for, and (again this is just my opinion) it is something we find in the work of all great artists.
