Grasses That Have No Fields: From Gerald Murnane's 'Inland' to a Phenomenology of Isogonic Constitution
2006 (English)Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
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.
