Signs Taken for Wonders: Essays in the Sociology of Literary Forms by Franco Moretti
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This work of literary analysis examines the great works of modern literature, from Shakespeare's tragedies to Joyce's "Ulysses" as historical "signs" - literary systems that are tokens of wider cultural and political realities. Covering such diverse genres as baroque tragedy, horror, detective fiction and classical realism, the book presents an analysis of the relations between high and mass culture.
