  Literary Theory [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
It is literary theory that formulates the relationship between author and work; literary theory develops the significance of race, class, and gender for literary study, both from the standpoint of the biography of the author and an analysis of their thematic presence within texts.
Literary theorists trace the history and evolution of the different genres—narrative, dramatic, lyric—in addition to the more recent emergence of the novel and the short story, while also investigating the importance of formal elements of literary structure.
Literary theory and the formal practice of literary interpretation runs a parallel but less well known course with the history of philosophy and is evident in the historical record at least as far back as Plato.

 20th WCP: Philosophical Aspects of Literary Objectiveness
In contrast to ‘natural’; objectiveness and objectiveness based on various societal conventions, the legitimacy of a literary work is solely guaranteed by its elements being organized in accordance with the rules of literary objectiveness.
When literary objectiveness ceases, however, to be understood as a system constituted by various objective formations aiming to correspond in one way or another to the ‘world’, scientific analysis of literary objectiveness will be rendered impossible.
The consequences of the second crucial feature of the crisis of literary objectiveness are no less essential: the new type of literary objectiveness is determined by a reflective process on the the value judgements and standards associated with former instances of literary objectiveness.

 The Literary Darwinists - New York Times
It is useful to know a bit about current literary criticism to understand how different the Darwinist approach to literature is. Current literary theory tends to look at a text as the product of particular social conditions or, less often, as a network of references to other texts.
Literary Darwinists use this "deep history" to explain the power of books and poems that might otherwise confuse us, thus hoping to add satisfaction to our reading of them.
(Literary Darwinists like multiple answers, convinced the best idea will win out.) One idea is that literature is a defense reaction to the expansion of our mental life that took place as we began to acquire the basics of higher intelligence around 40,000 years ago.

 Key Terms in Literature, by Ismail S Talib
Like many literary terms (tragedy and epic being prominent examples), the term has its origin in ancient Greece, but Aristotle's discussion on comedy in his Poetics is believed to be missing, and one consequence of this is that the term is less rigidly defined than tragedy.
It may be useful for students of linguistics to compare the literary use of the term with its use in linguistics and discourse analysis: for a comprehensive treatment, see David Chandler's An Introduction to Genre Theory.
Among the characteristics of Romantic literary works are an emphasis on the individual and on the expression of personal emotions, a tendency to explore new literary forms or new means of expression, and a highlighting of nature or the natural landscape.

 The Valve - A Literary Organ | Poetry, Patterns, and Provocation: The nora Project
Literary scholars, however--here the force of Moretti’s arguments make themselves felt--traditionally do not contend with very large amounts of data in their research.
These are more sophisticated than anything routinely used in literary criticism which, for all its sense of complexity and subtlety of meanings, has little in the way of explicit models of semantic structure.

 Literary Mama
Hudock is the editor-in-chief of the online literary magazine Literary Mama that she describes as “by mother writers for mother writers, and others.” Its goal is to publish highly skilled writing that is literary about a topic—motherhood— that frequently has many voices, all of which aren’t represented in the mainstream media, she said.
In addition to there not being enough diversity of authors on motherhood in most glossy women’s magazines, she added, the subject is a topic that sometimes has not been perceived as being literary, nor is it given enough attention by the academy.
Hudock sees her background of having taught at many different places and having different experiences as a mother as a strength that allows her to work with a variety of groups in the conversation about what it means to be a mother, what it means to be a woman, and how motherhood changes that identity.

 Literary Weblogs: An Overview - the complete review Quarterly
Literary weblogs continue to proliferate (and existing ones continue to shift in character (and quality)) and merely updating this Overview is no longer feasible.
Similarly, even a large, ongoing literary debate can be better summed up on a fixed page rather than in an ongoing blog -- see for example our piece on the Oprah-Franzen debacle, A Book, an Author, and a Talk Show Host and specifically the still occasionally updated links-list at the end of the piece.
The focus of MobyLives is entirely literary, and it offers all types of literature-related links: publishing and bookselling industry news, a great deal of book and author news, extensive coverage of all the fun literary controversies (the Oprah-Franzen brouhaha, the epidemic of plagiarizing historians, etc.), and more.

 Introduction to Modern Literary Theory
A literary movement that started in the late 1920s and 1930s and originated in reaction to traditional criticism that new critics saw as largely concerned with matters extraneous to the text, e.g., with the biography or psychology of the author or the work's relationship to literary history.
New Criticism proposed that a work of literary art should be regarded as autonomous, and so should not be judged by reference to considerations beyond itself.
In contrast, it views literary language as self-focused: its function is not to make extrinsic references, but to draw attention to its own "formal" features--that is, to interrelationships among the linguistic signs themselves.
