  • Literature in general, at the obvious opposite extreme. [of dialogue versus visuals]

Is this really the case? Literature has its equivalents of scene/setting exposition and dialogue, and different books have different levels of each — some read like screenplays, in contrast The Grapes of Wrath devotes whole chapters to "silent" descriptions of Scenery Porn.

Another question: is this supposed to be formatted as a Sliding Scale? Because at the moment it's split into two categories titled "Visuals" and "Dialogue". Sliding Scales usually have a title saying "More Visual, Less Dialogue" at the top and "More Dialogue, Less Visual" at the bottom.
