But the triumph of Mimesis,as well as its inevitable tragic flaw,is that the human mind studying literary representations of the historical world can only do so as all authors do-from the limited perspective of their own time and their own work. No more scientific a method or less subjective a gaze is possible, except that the great scholar can always buttress his [sic] vision with learning, dedication, and moral purpose. It is this combination, this mingling of styles out of which Mimesis emerges. And to my way of thinking, its humanistic example remains an unforgettable one, fifty years after its first appearance in English,-Edward said, Introduction to the Fiftieth-Anniversary Edition of Mimesis by Erich Auerbach(xxxii)
