Mimesis Dargestellte Wirklichkeit in der abendländischen Literatur Read ✓ 2 A half century after its translation into English Erich Auerbach's Mimesis still stands as a monumental achievement in literary criticism A brilliant display of erudition wit and wisdom his exploration of how great European writers from Homer to Virginia Woolf depicted reality has taught generations how to read Western literature This new expanded edition includes a substantial essay in introduction by Edward Said as well as an essay never before translated into English in which Auerbach responds to his criticsA German Jew Aue. If Borges writer of reflections labyrinths and expanses can be called master of the infinite then Auerbach must be that of the finite For Mimesis is a work which not only takes the limitations of literary representation for its subject but is selfsame spawned from finitude tragic and wholly contingent Exiled into a foreign library with but a ramshackle supply of scholarship to consult Auerbach ventures uixotically to trace from sheer erudition the development of historical consciousness through the ages We learn of the epochal struggles to delimit an autonomous realm for the aesthetic the unfathomability of depicting the phenomenal excess of everyday reality up until the modernist present Speaking of his contemporary literary condition Auerbach details the new temporal aesthetic of the novel In the masterpieces of Flaubert then Woolf Proust and Joyce time thickens becomes congealed such that exterior events turn into stations of repose for a multi perspectival subjectivity the uiet dignified sublime of the uotidian moment once and for all abolishes the ancient hierarchies of literary expression and in this movement claims Auerbach lies the potential for an trans linguistic post national aesthetic An optimistic prediction to be sure especially in light of the postmodern crisis of representation still to come with its splintering of totalities into so many local idioms Inevitably Auerbach s great work as the author himself confesses in an elegiac closing passage is circumscribed as all before and after by the course of time
