Moretti makes his most forceful case yet for his approach, a heretical blend of quantitative history, geography and evolutionary theory. He is a co-author of the History and Geography of Human Genes.

In this groundbreaking book, Franco Moretti argues that literature scholars should stop reading books and start counting, graphing, and mapping them instead. Charting entire genres—the epistolary, the gothic, and the historical novel—as well as the literary output of countries such as Japan, Italy, Spain, and Nigeria, he shows how literary history looks significantly different from what is commonly supposed and how the concept of aesthetic form can be radically redefined.

Since the whole point of the book is to show that we can study literature using big data, it seems like there would be a few flashier graphs. One person found this helpful. While this book is too short to launch a revolution in itself, it treee a provoking insight into Franco Moretti’s challenges to traditional literary history. I have also found the book to be an important input into the sociology of literature, and I’d recommend grapus “Graphs, Maps, Trees” to anyone interested in this field of study.
Moretti’s book is essentially advocating the death of literature by suggesting books not be read, but rather entered into a computer and then analyzed using data analytics to discover themes etc. The book discounts the pleasure of reading in favor of a quick word search to discover trends. This book is part of the digital humanities field.
Theorists will enjoy it but much like deconstructionism it leads nowhere but to a dark abyss. Seems like the author wishes to end Western Civilization franoc lists so is turning to the computer to try and equalize works of literature without regard to style, mapps, subtext, structure etc. Msps concepts mapping similarities. I like to see any new attempts at rigorously analyzing qualitative data, especially attempts that don’t merely rely on simple coding.
I also like to see visual and schematic thinking in action. Moretti’s book isn’t quite a revelation, not quite the start of a revolution, but it’s worth exploring.
