This chapter discusses how the religious, ethical, and aesthetic constituents have also become weakened. Its discussion supplements the previous chapter, where the global expansion of writing in English has weakened the cultural-nationalist strand in the institution of ‘English Literature’. Literary humanism is one of the concepts introduced and discussed.
