On Literary Worlds

Eric Hayot

Oxford University Press

This chapter lays out a theory of modern literary history as a series of linked responses to the modern world-view. Far from designating the concrete reactions that govern any specific and historical human community, the logical qualities of the responses aim to describe the empty slots and possibilities that necessarily obtain in relation to all propositions, and hence to all human communities in which propositions are made. The responses are generally described in relation to the general modern world-view outlined so far. The Realistic, Romantic, and Modernist modes are discussed.

Keywords:   modern literary history, world-view, logical responses, Realism, Romanticism, Modernism
