MODELING OF SUBJECT WORLDS IN BIOLOGY AND LITERARY CRITICISM. AN ESSAY ON BARIERATA (THE BARRIER) BY PAVEL VEZHINOV
MetadataShow full item record
This paper aims to construct a theoretical model in order to allow us to rethink the concept of literary worlds. The basis of this attempt is the work of the biologist Jakob von Uexküll and his main idea of Umwelt. This purpose suggests the construction of a bridge between theoretical biology and literary criticism, which actually requires a process of selfmodeling in the literary field. The new theoretical model is functionalized through a rereading of the short novel The Barrier by Pavel Vezhinov.
