Literary Darwinism: A relatively new field of evolutionary psychology / literary theory. What has recently been written in argument
I have read through some of the works of:
Michelle Scalise Sugiyama
...and a few others, yet I am having a hard time finding critical work designed to bring down
the arguments of Darwinian Literary Studies
. It appears that the field of Poststructuralism
is one of the main targets of Literary Darwinism's (Lit-Dar) proponents.
Has anyone attempted to re-address the balance?
I have found little in Lit-Dar writings about specifically text
, something the Postmodernists very much conern themselves with. Surely there is some work on the subject that addresses its absence from Lit-Dar writings?
(I am not interested in the critique of Evolutionary Psychology - of which there is plenty - unless it specifically addresses the Literary
concerns of Darwinian Literary Studies.)
Thanks a lot
