Redeeming the Canon: Transdisciplinary Collocations
Forskningsoutput: Tidskriftsbidrag › Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift
The canon is subject to fashion too, but fashions know inner delimitations. Every time a certain fashion is resurrected, it displays new encodings, too, superposed to the old ones. Nothing in history has been resumed between the same coordinates. A trustworthy canon cumulates many fashions and combines them into a multi-discourse super-fashion. But, in the end, the canon cannot contest the perishable ingredient in its composition. Even Harold Bloom acknowledged that when he selected only twenty-six writers to support his point of view. What raises the canon above the run-of-the-mill fashion is that it never wanes entirely; it simply substitutes some of its components, modernising its structure. The canon is an ever-lasting system endowed with the ability to eliminate and draft values in accordance with cultural imperatives. At the same time, the survivalist representation of the canon is limited, as its main mission is to safeguard and propose values. That is why the canon has to be formed with an eye to the updated chart of values; otherwise it would completely miss its momentum and power of influence.
