Geschiedenis van de moderne Nederlandse literatuur is an attempt to de-essentialize the central concepts of literary history. Romanticism, realism, avant-garde, modernism, and postmodernism are being reconceptualized as discursive frames that direct the interpretation of texts. Contrary to the existing textbooks in Dutch literary history the book does not focus on labeling or periodization. Instead, it provides a literary-historical method that is based on discourse analysis. It shows how different frames reveal different textual signals (metaphors, binary oppositions) and different critical perspectives on modernity within the same text. Hence, it focuses on the dynamics of literary heritage, not on the fixation of the canon.
