Example text

Neoclassical criticism, such as Dryden’s, assumes a particular position in this (simplified) narrative of the sciences and the humanities. Even though it engages with literature of both ancient and modern times, as an approach, neoclassical criticism takes up the observations and methods of seventeenth-​and eighteenth-​century “science, when rightly and generally cultivated,” as well as its confidence that the observation of nature (as through telescopes and microscopes) can yield reliable rules and principles, but applying it instead to the observation of literature.

According to Gombrich, artists work not only on the basis of what they observe of nature but also on the basis of their “memories of successful solutions,” the artist’s own and those of tradition (1969, 347) which brings the representation to optimum effect. The creation of the artwork sets a number of challenges to the artist (in Gombrich’s example, Rembrandt needs to capture the surprise and recognition of the disciples at Emmaus), and the artist then develops a successful solution which relies both on a correspondence with everyday reality and a schematic grasp of the salient features of the situation.

Indeed, I suggest that it is possible to combine cognitive approaches for the purposes of studying literature by inscribing them within the conceptual frame of the neoclassical rules. Consider this a thought experiment in the prehistory of cognitive poetics that brings to the fore a new way of thinking about literature and cognition in its historical contexts. The guiding question is this: How would a neoclassical critic use the research from the cognitive sciences, psychology, and philosophy that informs cognitive approaches to literature today?
