    Sinopsis de: "The Question of Literature"

    Description: The question of literature brings together essays by a number of distinguished theorists and academics on the changing cultural significance of literature as such. As literary theory has grown more influential, inter-disciplinary and sophisticated, it has come to concern itself with a much greater range of issues and objects than those traditionally considered literary. Literary theory now addresses philosophy, history, psychology, politics, the media, and potentially every other aspect of culture - but as a result the nature of its relation to literature itself has become less clear. The question of literature seeks to recontextualise literature and the literary within the diversity of post modern theory, showing how theory has changed our understanding literature and its questions, and affirming the ways in which literature remains valuable and transformative for present day culture. It relates literature importantly to the institution of the university, but also to ethical judgments and values, new media and computer technology, and the nature of the representative democracy. In the scope of its discussion The question of literature constitutes a major intervention in current literary-theoretical debates, and will be of great interest not only to academics and students in literary, social, and cultural studies, but to anyone concerned wit these debates or with the future of literature as such.
