Literature crisis is not limited to one nation but a worldwide phenomenon. This article analyzes french discourses and korean`s focusing on actual literary situation. French critics owe current problem to education reform and decline of “sacred monsters, monstres sacres”. From 1980`s, systematic standardization by french government in higher education institution has caused level downward of nation. Moreover, great artists who sacrifice their lives to art, so-called “sacred monsters” in 19, 20th century has disappeared. Besides, few big publishers which monopolize literary market compete into publishing best sellers which wouldn`t be so often great pieces. In Korea, first of all, literary situation is aggravating mostly because of digital culture which prevails in every domain.

Thinking and criticizing culture is replaced by “fast” culture, in other words, digital and “click” one. Secondly, it is gone that letters have power by themselves, Literary works are not any more created exclusively by few number of authors but by anybody, It makes inevitably hard in distinction between great works and disqualifying books, this article propose three directions in order to restore the power of literature. At first, publishers have to make an effort to give chances to different and unique voices which are independent to public taste. Secondly, critics must give right guidelines to readers.
