New Formalism and the Popular Religious Novel: Special Session, MLA 2012

Marjorie Levinson has suggested that new formalism, in its most sensitive and nuanced instances, offers a way of re-approaching central questions concerning the work of literature in modernity. It does this, not by rejecting history as a grounding methodological episteme, but by returning, historically, to the different ways literary form has been understood over time, as engendering experiences that are not perfectly coincidental with history itself.
