  1. 1. Lecture 21: Whatever You Say, Say … PATRICK MOONEY, M.A. ENGLISH 10, SUMMER SESSION A 27 JULY 2015
  2. 2. Quick notes from Culler ● “Literariness” also occurs outside literature (19-20). ● “Literature” is a contemporary historical category, and one that has varied a great deal over the last two hundred years. (22-23) ● Nevertheless, we tend to take some texts as supporting the move of “treating them as literature.” (23-26) ● Literature is thus both language organized in particular ways and a set of conventions that produces a certain kind of attention.
  3. 3. Several approaches to “what is literature?”: 1. Literature is the foregrounding of language. (29- 30) 2. Literature is the integration of language. (30-31) 3. Literature is fiction (or as language with certain special deictic properties). (31-33) 4. Literature is an aesthetic object. (33-34) 5. Literature is an intertextual and self-reflexive construct. (34-36)
  4. 4. Several approaches to “what is literature for?”: 1. It is civilizing. (36) 2. It is universalizing. (37) 3. It is nationalizing. (37-38) 4. It is the vehicle for ideology, and/or the opportunity to undo ideology. (38-39) 5. It is cultural capital. (41)
