The "world of letters" has always seemed a matter more of metaphor than of global reality. In this book, Pascale Casanova shows us the state of world literature behind the stylistic refinements--a world of letters relatively independent from economic and political realms, and in which language systems, aesthetic orders, and genres struggle for dominance. Rejecting facile talk of globalization, with its suggestion of a happy literary "melting pot," Casanova exposes an emerging regime of inequality in the world of letters, where minor languages and literatures are subject to the invisible but implacable violence of their dominant counterparts. Inspired by the writings of Fernand Braudel and Pierre Bourdieu, this ambitious book develops the first systematic model for understanding the production, circulation, and valuing of literature worldwide. Casanova proposes a baseline from which we might measure the newness and modernity of the world of letters--the literary equivalent of the meridian at Greenwich. She argues for the importance of literary capital and its role in giving value and legitimacy to nations in their incessant struggle for international power. Within her overarching theory, Casanova locates three main periods in the genesis of world literature--Latin, French, and German--and closely examines three towering figures in the world republic of letters--Kafka, Joyce, and Faulkner. Her work provides a rich and surprising view of the political struggles of our modern world--one framed by sites of publication, circulation, translation, and efforts at literary annexation.… (lisätietoja)

One of the most important books of contemporary literary criticism of the past decade, Casanova's study argues that modern literature must be seen as a competition among nations for cultural capital. She argues that the emergence of national literatures in the 19th and 20th century can be understood if we examine them through the rubrics of political and literary domination, with Paris as the undisputed center of the literary world. The book does no close reading, but its breadth is pretty staggering: Casanova gives accounts of the national literatures of dozens of different nations. Possible weaknesses: the book is Eurocentric. It's not so much the world republic as it is the European republic. This is particularly obvious when Casanova attempts to export her insights to the Western hemisphere. Still, provocative work. ( )

“The purpose of this book is to restore a point of view that has been obscured for the mot part by the ‘nationalization’ of literatures and literary histories, to rediscover a lost transnational dimension of literature that for two hundred years has been reduced to the political and linguistic boundaries of nations….[T]here exists a ‘literature-world,’ a literary universe relatively independent of the everyday world and its political divisions, whose boundaries and operational laws are not reducible to those of ordinary political space” because “[l]ittle by little…literature succeeded in freeing itself from the hold of the political and national authorities that originally it helped to establish and legitimize. The accumulation of specifically literary resources, which involved the invention and development of a set of aesthetic possibilities, of forms, narrative techniques, and formal solutions….--in short, the creation of a specific history (more or less distinct from national history, from which it could no longer be deduced)—allowed literary space gradually to achieve independence and determine its own laws of operation.” “[L]iterature found itself at last in a position to assert its own autonomy.”
This description of ”internationalization…signifies…the opposite of…the neutralizing term ‘globalization,’ which suggests that the world political and economic system can be conceived as the generalization of a single and universally applicable model. In the literary world…it is the competition among its members that defines and unifies the system while at the same time marking its limits….[A]ll writers attempt to enter the same race, and all of them struggle…to attain the same goal: literary legitimacy.”
