    Clever, at least in literature, is sometimes used as a synonym for ignorance. Just because you're clever doesn't mean you're also wise. Wise, at least in literature, is usually used as a synonym for enlightenment. One who is ignorant is not enlightened.

    V It is in many forms of literature.

    Clever isn't a synonym for ignorance.
