An open group for all members interested in literary theory, literary criticism, the history of literary theory and criticism, literary aesthetics or literary cultural studies, the theory of literary history, comparative literature, and literary and philological studies generally.
Group for Global Literary Theory (ERC Starting Grant no. 759346, 2018-2023). This is currently a private group; we may make it public at a later date.
This paper defines the concepts of literary theory and literary criticism as dialectically related activities, and puts forward a semiotic classification of literary theories. To conclude a preliminary approach to literary theory, it sketches out the origins of literary theorizing and critical practice in pre-philosophical thought and in the Greek writers and philosophers before Plato and Aristotle’s foundational works.
