He argues that authors and publishers are structurally driven to uphold canonicity, “creating the impression that the canon appears invested in keeping itself in the center.” Subcultural actors challenge the center’s authority, which in good Foucauldian fashion benefits the center, leading to just enough change in the canon to keep it fresh. For formalist [...]

      Couldn't get through the introduction. The wall of jargon nearly put me to sleep every time. Which is a shame, because the subject matter is completely in my wheelhouse, but the author makes it as dry as cement and as fun to read about.
