Literary Studies in Reconstruction

An Introduction to Literature

by Marko Juvan (Author)
©2011 Monographs 282 Pages

Summary

The identity and relevance of literary studies require a conceptual and institutional reconstruction in response to the global reshaping and commodification of knowledge. The author thus proposes a theory of literary discourse and literary history that take into account literariness as an important socio-cultural phenomenon and revisits several critical concepts, such as world literature, literary text, genre, style, fiction, literary space, and cultural memory.
