"The Real and the Imaginary: Propellers of Knowledge in Literature"




The paper discusses from a hermeneutical angle the role of culture in the creation of knowledge and its relationship to literary modes of production. It also discusses the nuances of modern experimental literature, the role of language and the debate on the inability of language to capture the Real, the phallocentric nature of written literature, and the symbolic in the imaginary. Other concepts that come into the picture are: memory, desire, the gaze of the Other in reading and listening processes, and finally the concept of truth in literature.
