  • Literary Digitalization

    13 september 2016

    If we seek for the opposite of macro-literature, as a consequence of the works written by Franco Moretti, we are facing philology or close reading. The author defended a comparative reading of international literature in which the microscopic (figures, poems, books or concrete authors) would have littler importance compared to the macroscopic (genres or number of translations). However, over 15 years have passed since Moretti’s works were published and the process of digitisation is unstoppable. Big Data “has changed our way of understanding the world”, just as Jorge Carrión explained in his article “Literature and big data”, published by La Vanguardia.
