On Literary Worlds (2012)

On Literary Worlds (Oxford UP, 2012) argues that contemporary debates about world literature and world literary systems can be rethought through an attention to the world-creating force of aesthetic objects. The book re-describes the history of modern literature as we know it (or as we think we know it), developing new concepts and new formal languages to describe the aesthetic “physics” of the socially and imaginatively possible.
