Goodness in Literature

  • Hugo A. Meynell


As has just been said, works of literature are deemed to be of value in proportion to (i) their illustration and demonstration of what is of central importance for human life; (ii) the originality of their use of language and their treatment of plot, character, situation and so on; (iii) their representation of persons, things and circumstances, and (iv) their overall unity in variety of substance and effect.
