The Creation discipline covers any activity that studies the self in order to manifest the material. Literature is a body of written works related by subject-matter, by language or place of origin, or by dominant cultural standards. Literally translated, the word means "acquaintance with letters" (from Latin littera letter). In Western culture the most basic written literary types include fiction and non-fiction. A Jedi may see Literature as a study of self through acquaintance with letters. Therefore, Literature could cover some studies such as History, Lyrical, or Inquisitive.
