THE SENTIMENTAL EDUCATION OF THE NOVEL I N T R O D U C T I O N Reconstructing the Literary Field O U T OF T H E C E N T U R Y ' S CHAOS Before 1830, the novel in France was "pleasant entertainment for lazy gentlefolk [honnêtes paresseux]," to cite the noted critic, Charles-Marie de Féletz, himself quoting a celebrated seventeenth-century formulation. 1 After 1830, the genre became an authoritative form of social and cultural analysis imbued with the highest literary prestige.2 "Racine and the coffee house are outmoded; asphalt and pavement wi l l pass

Literary works are implicated in the specific cultural field in which they are produced as well as in various other areas of the social world to which author and text belong. It is, in some ways, the intersection or the overlap between the literary field and some of those other areas that interests me throughout this book. When Bourdieu writes, at the outset of Pascalian Meditations, that “it is because we are implicated in the world that there is implicit content in what we think and say about it” (9), we can take his observation in several ways. As we

1 Fashion Restructures the Literary Field Bücher=menge. Deß Bücherschreibens ist so viel / man schreibet sie mit hauffen; Niemand wird Bücher schreiben mehr / so niemand wird sie kauffen. Crowd of Books Of writing books there is so much, they are written by the heap; No one would write more books, if no one would buy them. —Friedrich von Logau, Three Thousand German Epigrams (Breslau, 1654) In 1654, poet Friedrich von Logau (1605–1655) briefl y commented on an age- old problem: the willy-nilly proliferation of books. Unlike Logau, others had al- ready spilled

499 Towards a Literary History: The Ukrainian Australian Literary Field Sonia Mycak Ukrainian Australians are celebrating seventy years of Ukrainian settlement in Australia, dating from the years when some 21,000 Ukrainians1 arrived on Australia’s shores as postwar “displaced persons.” They were part of a larger group of refugees from war- torn Europe who came to Australia under the auspices of United Nations International Refugee Organization resettlement2 and 1 According to official statistics, of the 170,700 refugees who arrived through the Displaced

Dalia Satkauskytė The Role of Aesopian Language in the Literary Field Autonomy in Question Introduction The first question that arises when preparing an analysis of so-called Aesopian language based on Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of the field of liter- ature is whether or not it is appropriate to rely on it when considering a specific phenomenon that is uncharacteristic or nearly uncharacteristic of Western literature. According to Bourdieu, the literary field is in part autonomous, having a distinctive structure, specific principles of the for- mation and

Thomas Wörtche 10 Crime Fiction and the Literary Field in Germany: An Overview The ‘literary field’, if one accepts Pierre Bourdieu’s ‘concept metaphor’ (as Henrietta Moore calls it) as an explicative framework, is neither a static nor a peaceful place.1 The positioning of an author, a setting, a form or a genre is historically variable, changing from the periphery to the centre and vice versa. At times, such positions are threatened with being ousted from the ‘field’ or having to fight for acceptance within it. The literary field is the battleground of aesthetic

Chapter 2 Dynamic Mediation: The Literary Field and the Field oE Power In the previous chapter, we saw how the establishment of the Sinn und Form leg- end was made possible, in no small measure, by the particular relationships which held in, and between, the German literary field and the field of power in the early 1950s. From its foundation, Sinn und Form occupied an established and readily recognisable position in the literary field, that of the thick review journal. The re- storative mood prevailing in the literary field at the time of the journal's foundation
