The theoretician Adrian Marino has tried to offer a real theory which should explain the entire system of comparative literature. The author aimed to articulate a genuine poetics in order to revigorate this research field. Therefore, Adrian Marino becomes the promoter of the idea of Weltliteratur and proposes a new theoretical concept, that of literary invariant, meant to lend a fresh analytical perspective to comparative literature. The author strongly believes that the hermeneutic perspective can facilitate a more appropriate interpretation of this field / system, both as a homogeneous whole and as a sum of the component parts, choosing to emphasize the congruent aspects of the world’s literatures instead of the divergent ones.
