Na aanleiding van die vorige inskrywing oor Palindroom ( ‘n getal wat van links en regs dieselfe lees soos 1221) was almal, ekself die meeste, deurmekaar oor die woord kanon.

Ek het oudergewoonte wikipedia maar weer gaan raadpleeg. “Canon” ingetik, in die literêre sin van die woord.

Hier is dit in Engels dan:

The word “canon” originally meant the books which the Catholic Church
officially chose to be included in the Bible; by extension, it means
the authoritative “holy writ” of a fictional universe. However, the
practice of defining a “canon” within a fictional world derived from the concept of a literary canon, a specified collection of works considered to be both representative and the best of a particular form, genre or culture.
In that more common use of the word, works forming a canon do not have
to bear any relation to each other, apart from their high quality or
historical influence.

The use of “canon” to describe the degree to which a work adheres to
the standards of its fictional world, appears to have originated
amongst devotees of the Sherlock Holmes stories, as a way to distinguish between the original works of Arthur Conan Doyle
and adaptations of those works or original works by other writers
utilising related characters and settings. However, much of the
interest in and controversy over issues of canonicity have appeared in
recent decades in the fan followings of films and television shows, such as science fiction franchises Star Wars and Star Trek.

When the body of work nominally set in the same fictional universe
becomes large enough, it can happen that new material, such as might be
found in spin-off television shows, prequels
and books, contradicts earlier material. Such contradictions may be a
result of bad research, or an attempt to revise, correct or retcon
a perceived error in earlier material. The question is which material
to favour and which to ignore when attempting to resolve all the
material into a consistent whole. Two simple approaches are the
“principle of first mention” in which information in the original work
provides a foundation which later material must respect, and the revisionist model in which the latest work always supersedes earlier material. However, the situation can be much more complicated.

10 antwoorde op Kanon

  1. Nou is ek nog deurmekaarder as ooit,veral;”the authorative “holy writ” of a fictional universe”.
    In my klein wêreldjie is ‘n kanon ‘n chant. Oxford sê; chant; a tune to which the words of psalms or other works with irregular rhyhms are fitted by singing several sylables or words to the same note.
    So moet ek aanneem ‘n kanon is ‘n ding wat jy buig tot hy pas?
