Potential Benefits for the Novel Critic of Exploiting Analogies Between the Novel and the Closed System.
DeHart, Florence E.
This paper explores potential benefits for the novel critic of exploiting analogies between the novel and the closed system for more rigorous description and interpretation of novels; and further development of the body of theory of novelistic criticism, particularly where there are differences in critics' interpretations of the same work. A closed system is one of two types of concrete systems, the other type being the open system. The author also briefly identifies three areas which have implications for further study into a systems approach to analyzing novels. These areas relate to other literary genres, text processing analysis aspects of information science, and benefits of the "novel-closed system" analogies for general systems theory. (Author/RB)
