A Prehistory of Cognitive Poetics

Neoclassicism and the Novel

Karin Kukkonen

Cognition and Poetics

  • Provides a thorough introduction to the neoclassical debates of how literature is shaped in unison with the thinking and feeling mind
  • Neoclassicism is reconsidered in light of social cognition, embodied cognition and predictive cognition
  • Neoclassical theory is connected to the praxis of eighteenth-century writers who shaped the emerging narrative form of the novel
  • Gives a unique connection between neoclassical criticism and the rise of the novel
  • Applies current cognitive approaches to literature through a historically distant approach
