Influence and Nietzsche



How is the allegedly oppressive and marginalizing stellarum influxus, and emanational, theory of influence Nietzschean in makeup? If it reduces the relationship between influence and originality, again, to a theoretical pulley system: the more influence increases, the more originality falls (and vice-versa), how can this be attributed to the work of such a ground-breaking thinker as Nietzsche? As demonstrated in the previous chapter, this model has been widely accepted as the dominant understanding of the term in literary studies; hence it has been left vulnerable to political and methodological attacks by those seeking to undermine the canon of Western literature.
