Mimetic Criticism, mimesis

| | Comments (0)

I guess I'm picking the most obvious word or I'm just the dumb one that didn't know what this ment, but whatever the case here it is.

Mimetic Criticism: A type of criticism started by Plato. It assumes literary works to be reflections or representations of life and the world in general.

Mimesis (told me to look up imitation, which makes sense now that I think about it): A greek term used by literary critics to refer to the representation of reality in literature.
