Do you think that genre fiction is more, less, or equally relevant compared to "realistic" drama?


Genre fiction would include categories such as horror, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, mystery, and western, among others. "Realistic" drama is often coming-of-age stories, personal epiphany tales, and stories of people struggling to live in disadvantaged circumstances (poverty, ethnic discrimination, abusive childhood). Many people seem to think that these stories say more about the human condition because they address issues in a completely literal fashion, without allegory.
