qPart I of this study demonstrates the distinctiveness of cautious and bold texts, and consequently conveys a pluralistic understanding of disciplines of knowledge, by emulating different subject-positions. The cautious texts of the philosophical subject, the literary subject, and the non-scientific subject are described. The manner in which the bold text tries to summarize the cautious texts in terms of subjects-as-objects follows, along with a general description of different approaches pertinent to the bold text.q qPart II extends the examination of the bold text by describing the discipline of literary studies in a broad sense and English literature in particular.q qPart III reverts to the cautious text of literature. The expansive and assimilative nature of this cautious text, with its centralized subject-position, is demonstrated by describing the literary subject's (my) engagement with ostensibly qnon-literaryq texts.q qFinally, in a section entitled qAfter-thoughts, q some of the observations made in the course of the study are taken to certain specific discussions of current interest.q--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
