Abstract

"Drawing comparisons with other art forms, this book examines the role of aesthetic features in silent reading, such as narrative structure, and the core experience of reading a novel as a story rather than a scholarly exercise. Focuses on the experience of the art form known as the novel. Uses the more common perspective of a reader who reads to be told a story, rather than for scholarly or critical analysis. Draws comparisons with experience of the other arts, music in particular. Explores the different effects of a range of narrative approaches."-- "Human beings are captivated by stories. In the modern world we consume fiction as literature, at a huge rate, whether on paper or electronic devices - but what is at the heart of the experience of the novel, of silent reading? Philosophers of art have traditionally focused on a reading experience in which novels are read, re-read, savored, and studied in depth. In this book, Peter Kivy looks at the more common experience of a reader who just reads a novel once, or who, if they do read it again, do so for the same reasons that they read it the first time: to be told a story. This is not the reading experience of the scholar or critic, but that of the average reader, and it represents an engagement with the age-old experience of storytelling that is bound up with the very beginnings of humanity. Drawing comparisons with other art forms, this book examines the role of aesthetic features in silent reading, such as narrative structure, and pursues the experiential core of what it is to read a novel: a tale once-told"--

Abstract

"Although literature is not a technology, the historical models literary scholars use to describe it owe a great deal to the languages of originality, novelty, progress, and invention that characterize technological development. However this quintessentially modern mindset-putting progress at the center of historicity-makes it difficult for anyone eager to mount a case for why someone interested in the history of modern literary aesthetics ought to read the literature of the non-Western world. In this groundbreaking book, Eric Hayot argues that contemporary debates about world literature and world literary systems can be rethought through an attention to the world-creating force of aesthetic objects. As he rethinks from the ground up our concepts of literary progress and historicity, Hayot re-describes the history of modern literature as we know it (or as we think we know it), developing new concepts and new formal languages to describe the aesthetic "physics" of the socially and imaginatively possible. Connecting this physics to historical shifts in world-view ranging from Copernicus to Marx, Don Quijote to Battlestar Galactica, On Literary Worlds shows how the very notion of the modern is, at heart, a cosmographical social form, and opens vast new directions for the future analysis of the activity and force of literature."--Publisher's website.
