Grasses That Have No Fields: From Gerald Murnane's 'Inland' to a Phenomenology of Isogonic Constitution
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of English.
2006 (English)Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Abstract [en]

By elucidating the isogonic structures of affectivity and landscaping in Gerald Murnane's novel 'Inland,' the study demonstrates the reductive nature of analytic models based on world-positioning. Since the constitution of a literary work does not involve the object-like units and displacements that are viewable in the realm of constituted worlds, literary theories based on the event of investigating worlds cannot clarify a literary text's self-actualization. Extrinsic procedures do not touch the core of the literary work of art. Nor do they touch the nuances of its surface texture that make it specific.
