This article, preceding Guillory’s essay on the literary canon, among other things, recapitulates the fundamental points of the discussion about the canon to date. The author outlines the basic types of canons (such as local, international, and feminist), and discusses important theories from the English-speaking world which are concerned with the literary canon (for example, those by Frank Kermode, William V. Harris, Barbara Herrnstein Smith, Charles Altieri, and Harold Bloom). He brings up the thought-provoking inquiries of Michel Foucault and the “new historians” who follow on from him. He points out the lack of objectivity of the canon and its obvious dependence on the time it was formed.
