This thesis is a historical enquiry into the idea of literature as invented by early German Romanticism. The Romantic idea of literature, which has informed the cultural system of modernity, delegitimized itself historically when the system engendered World Wars, totalitarianisms, concentration camps and genocides. This cultural system nevertheless continues to exist and dominate, since, as a general rule, people have wanted - and still want - to deny its inherent relationship with barbarism. Yet, confronted with modern forms of terror, dissenting voices have mounted a critique of the culture, sounding the alarm in the hope of carrying out a rescue mission. This thesis focuses on how, in the twentieth century, theoretical inquiry and literary and artistic practice bring about a schism, creating as they do a critical and dialectical relation to the Romantic idea of literature and determining a new mode of being for literature. In the wake of the experience of terror, at a time when the fate of art hangs in the balance, the critical theory of kitsch and the art of testimony are born together, irreversibly. Aside from the ethical need to produce an authentic record of reality, we might distinguish, here, the political desire to transmit something of substance which might inspire a new foundation for life together within the community. As it happens, in the age of testimony, literature and art inherit this mission, and it follows that non-testimonial works take on the role of a wake-up call. It is precisely at the turn of the twenty-first century that it becomes possible to recognize a tradition in retrospect and, following Volodine's synthesis, to qualify it as post-exotic
