Abstract:

Evaluation is central to literary studies and has led to an impressive list
of publications on the status and history of the canon. Yet it is
remarkable how little attention has been given to the role of textual
properties in evaluative processes. Most of the chapters in The Quality
of Literature
redress this issue by dealing with texts or genres
ranging from classical antiquity, via Renaissance to twentieth century.
They provide a rich textual and historical panorama of how critical debate
over literary quality has influenced our modes of thinking and feeling
about literature, and how they continue to shape the current literary
landscape. Four theoretical chapters reflect on the general state of
literary evaluation while the introduction weaves the different threads
together aiming at further conceptual clarification. This book thus
contributes to a deeper understanding of the problems that are at the heart
of past and present debates over literary quality.
