Genre

Haettner Aurelius, Eva LU (2017) In Literature p.27-41
Abstract
The concept of genre is scrutinized as a semantic phenomenon, and it is argued that the concept of genre must be defined according to a pragmatic semantic, not a realistic. Genres are not logical classes. The analytic practice is then connected to this way of defining the concepts: it is governed by how the culture using the concept understands the word. An analysis of a letter of Mme de Sévigné demonsrates how this analysis works, and two kinds of mediation by the genre are found: it mediates between language' s grammatic level and its pragmatic, and between text and society.
