Eve Sedgwick has tried to research the new aspects of literary citicism i. e. homosexual surveies. For this intent. she devises a theory that is a balance mix of literary and textual unfavorable judgment. She does non establish her theory on any theoritical evidences or on any abstract thoughts but takes into history the celebrated plants of Billy Budd and Picture of Dorian Gray to pull out the basic dogmas of her theory.
She is of the position that these are texcts that “have set the footings of a modern homosexual identity” . ( p. 746 ) She farther posits that the “strategy of a new canon operate in the space” ( p. 746 ) at the same clip and at an equal degree i. e. non merely both texts narrates the same thematic looks ( homosexualism ) but they appear at the same clip. She farther takes into consideration the procedure of the constitution of these new literary phenomenon autonomic nervous systems says that this new canon devising is against conformance to the old phenonmenon in literary history as this procedure is neither maestro derived from maestro canon nor it is produced through “postfractural plularity of canons” ( P.
746 ) but it’s a consequence of an interface between these two. And this is made possible through “active realtions of thought” ( p. 747 ) She farther inquiries whether prevalence of a contributing environment and literary history is a necessity for the production of such text or is it independent of that? This enables her to raise certain inquiries that whe wants to be answered by some literary giants. But at the terminal of the essay we are unable to happen the reply to this job.
